Hi
I Passed SCJP(310-055) today!
I would like to thank Kathy and Bert for their wonderful book.Bio Deisel rocks for sure !
My score is not that great (72%), but I am contented...it seemed so tough!
Having said that, one advice for wannabe's :
Code , code and code !. that's it.
KS&BB book is great, but you can not hope to clear this exam unless you
code extensively and try out the questions given in the book and mock exams.
More importantly, practice by changing the given code and then seeing the output.

One question to more experienced people, specially Kathy and Bert :
At the beginning of the exam, there is a survey conducted, that asks for the candidate's level of expertise in various topics.
Does the difficulty level of the exam change as per that?
I wonder whether that made the exam tough for me, because I selected excellent and intermediate rank for everything in the survey.

thanks again to Kathy and Bert

no replies yet..:-(.

One more question : Do I need to apply seperately for getting the
Certificate, logo and business card(the one that has sun certified programmer written on it) , or does Sun send it by default ?

Congrats Prashant!

We're very glad that the book helped, and I think your study tips are excellent!

The survey has no impact on which questions you get - Sun works very hard to make sure that each possible set of questions is balanced in difficulty with all of the other possible question sets.

Hi Prasant,

Congratulations.

we have to enjoy the (learning) journey, not the destination(result) which is very temporary because we kick start our next journey from the next moment.
