Hi javaranchers,

I have been a somewhat silent member of Javaranch and been following the threads for a long time now. After a long procrastination (9 months after I got SCJA voucher), I finally decided time's up and started preparing two weeks ago. Today I cleared the exam with 100%. No answers were wrong.

Thanks very much java ranchers for creating such a wonderful website for the Java Community.

I will briefly post my experience below and also give some useful pointer and include a list of bookmarks that I used for preparing for the Exam. I did not study with anybook I collected online articles and studied online Java Tutorials from Sun and the UML Book pdf that is well know in this forum. These are more than enough to pass the exam with breeze.

My exam experience:
I finished the exam in 35 minutes including a review of all my answers. Most questions are easy. The only tricky (note: not tough) ones were in Java implementation of OO concepts. The questions were very tricky (for example they give class implementations and ask what results occur on compilation etc.)

I got approximately,

1. 12 questions on Java implementing OO
2. 10 Questions on Client /Server tecnologies
3. 7 Questions on general OOPs.
4. 5 Questions on UML
5. 3 Question on Algorithms including loops etc.
6. 5 Questions on rest of the topics in the syllabus such as swing, J2me etc.

Most people will easily answer all the J2ME, EJB, Client Server questions since they are straight forward. Just pay attention to Java/OO such as static methods, abstract class, inheritance etc since they are not straight forward and tricky.

I would say this exam is just too easy to pass i.e. get 68%. The trick lies in getting higher marks if aspire that.

best of luck to all.
Regards,
Jayaraman

P.S. You can download my SCJA bookmarks which I used for preparation here:

Thank you so much for the great collection of bookmarks. I'm taking the SCJA on Tuesday. I got through Cameron McKenzie's book, but wanted to study online as well. Your bookmarks have been a great compliment to my studies.

I'm certain that i will pass, I only hope I can come close to your score.
