Today was the first and probably last time I take the exam and I passed with 40 minutes left, though not with flying colors so I won't bother mentioning my score. There were so many questions on threads (guestimate of 12-15) I thought for sure I would not pass! The test was very difficult, but not nearly as impossible as I used to think.



Thanks to Kathy and Bert for their excellent (understatement) book:
http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Programmer-Developer-310-035-310-027/dp/0072226846/ref=sr_1_1/102-1211260-2899329?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1190505196&sr=1-1

I bought that book back in 2004 oddly enough, which is why I decided to take the scjp 1.4. I had already invested too much time into the 1.4 version periodically and especially since March '07 when I passed the SCJA.

For testing software I used whizlabs, enthuware, and the k&b master exam. I think whizlabs is good for the true/false section, but their test questions, i think, are not realistic and misleading in determining your test readiness. I guess I would recommend it as it's good to have many tools in your arsenal, but generally I think all you need is the k&b and the master exam software that comes with it.


Anyways, good luck to everyone else studying for a cert!!!
