Dear Ranchers,

Today I cleared SCJP 6.0
I took around 15 days for preparation along with my busy office schedule.
Had to sacrifice a couple of my weekends for the exam.

Thanks to Kathy and Bates for such a wonderful book. All words fell short to appreciate it. It's simply wonderful.

About the exam: It ain't easy. One very peculiar thing I found in my set of questions was a heavy amount of drag and drop questions.

Anyway, the basic and only thing that's going to help is your concepts.

Good luck to all those planning to crack the exam.

Hi All,

A very important thing that I would like to share about this series of exam is that I encountered few multiple choice questions which didn't tell how many options to choose. There were total 3-4 such questions towards the end (question no.62-72).

Also, my set had an exceptionally high number of drag and drop questions.

The questions for Java 6 were confined to only object finalize(). I didn't find the other API's like Navigable set/map or console in the exam.

Inner classes were hanging here and there and..... where not, and the thread and synchronization questions were also in plenty.


Hope that helps for all those preparing for the exam.

Thanks a lot Cameron.

Yes, even I was amazed by that. I thought one of the question had only one correct answer... but as check boxes were given, I chose the nearest true ones as well.

Well, that was pretty weird.
