Today is a tough day to me.

Almost no experience on Java, but I worte programs with other programming languages for more than 10 years.

I thought the SCJP exam should be very easy. Bought a SCJP book in China when I had a vacation there, one fifth of which talked about java.awt. Copy and Paste the Exam Objectives from java.sun.com. Those were all I had.

Yesterday I found this website, read the SCJP FAQ, and got several mock websites. I could feel some SCJP 5.0 mock exams were really tough to me. But I comforted myself that the real exam should be much easier.

I started the exam at 9:00 this morning. The first question stuck me 10 minutes and I had to gave up. Most of the rest questions were still tough to me. I hate the 'compilation error' option in all the questions. I had to read each program so carefully to make sure it didn't miss a bracket or semi-colon. Finished the first round in 2.5 hours and I had 23 questions marked. Went over the 23 questions again and then 5 minutes left.

I want to complain about the drag-and-drop questions. You can't re-check your selections of these questions. If you click the button again, all the slots will be shown blank and you can't check what you answered.

Finally I got it barely passed. I am happy I didn't waste the $200.

And the door of Java is openned to me!

One more question: it looks like very few people here took the 6.0 exam. why? It should be no big difference to you guys and why you don't just take the latest one?
