hi all,
I got failed in scjp 1.5 exam by 44 %. It is really tough exam guys specially if you have not practiced the mock exams. Only therotical knowledge is not enough. Threads, generics and collection questions are really difficult.
I just prepared for 9 days. Still i think i would have been cracked it if i would have done some practice for 3-4 days more. But still i am going to appear once again for the exam after one month and that time nobody can stop me taking my first java certification.
I love JAVA. JAVA is great guys. Proud to be a Java Programmer...

Vijay,

did you read Kathy sierra book and pratice the mock exam of that book.
ihave heard that reading that book and practicing the questions behind each capter and mock exam of that book can help you to pass in exam.

please correct me if iam telling anything wrong.

You can never fail the SCJP exam if you read and understand the Kathy Seirra completely.
Rather you can definitely get above 80.
So if you do not have Kathy Sierra go and get it, success will be yours.

Hello Vijay,

Sorry to hear that you failed the first time. Did you really prepare in only 9 days? That sounds like a really short time for the SCJP exam. Good luck with your next try.

We have a special forum for announcing exam results; the Sun Certification Results forum. I'm moving this post over there.

Thanks for advice.
I have used the Kathy siera book friends. But I am saying that you must solve some dumps and mock exams. That is really very important.
Thats what i think my mistake was..

Lots of people take the exam more than once. Don't be discouraged!

You'll get it!
