Bola,

how did you do on the whizlabs mocks? Also, your score printout shows how you did by subject area. Regarding the K&B book, did you do the practice tests at the end of each chapter?

Its likely you'll need to read some of the harder topics, like threads (chapter 9) and generics & collections more than once.

You might need to focus your preparation on certain specific topic areas

Passing the SCJP exam requires solving a great number of mock exams as well as practicing the concepts by writing code.

This for sure besides reading the K&B book.

Good luck for the next time.

Don't give up Bola. It almost happens to all people who take the exam.

I had to take 5 times to pass the exam.

You can use K&B's book as your reference and whizlabs mock exams to figure out your objectives.

You must push your mind & creativity to practice what you read (java's concepts) by writing code

Hope you can pass your next exam
