Hi,
happy to write the first entry on SCJP 6 (1.6).

(yes, i'm very sure it was SCJP 1.6 (CX-310-065 in english) and not 1.5.

)

I passed it (2 hours ago) with 91% :-) :-)

Now i will leave the office and drink mulled wine :-)

Hi,

first: Thank you for the congratulations!

I got many emails with questions regarding the java 6 exam. PLEASE STOP ASKING VIA EMAIL OR PRIVATE MESSAGE! Post a reply in the board instead!

Here my answers to the questions:

i can not compare the java 5 to the java 6 exam. (i only made the java 6; and i'm not allowed to write details about the real exam questions - you know!)

My study time was about 150+ hours in the last half year. 95% of the time i studied with java 5 material and mock-questions.

I can recommend training with this book (and the included mock-exams):

SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide ISBN-10: 0072253606


Sun Tutorials are very helpful, too:

Sun Tutorial's (e.g.: generics, collections,...)


I can also recommend to read the java 6 exam objectives in detail and
to study all the topics. See also this entry (very good!):

Here is a small FAQ from sun regarding the java 6 exam:

and last but not least: Write code, write code and write more code!
