I did it! After 4 and a half months of intensive study I passed my SCJP 5.0 exam this afternoon, first time with a score of 88%.
Im delighted. It started off ok, but it got tougher as it went on.
You just have to hang in there.
I used the whizlabs mock exams and averaged 76% so it was
fairly accurate.
Best tip I can give, is read the questions thoroughly and re-read it.
Then try to jog your memory and recall whatever you can from that topic.
Does the answer include the option of "Does not compile"?
If yes then meticulously check the code.
If the first line of code is an interface, are the method declarations legal?
Does a class implement the interface? What are the access modifiers of the implementing methods? They better be public!... you get my point!
Best of luck to anyone else who is going to sit it soon.
I took my time and made sure I didn't rush.
You will relax more as you get in to it. I was very nervous as I had put a lot of work into it and wanted to pass it before my Holidays.
Well, onto SCJD next!
Best regards,
K

Ok and of course I used K&B SCJP 5 book.
Thanks for a great publication guys and keep up the good work!
