Howdy Ranchers - just passed the SCJP 5.0 exam this morning with 90% - party time!
The time for the exam was 210 minutes, not 175 so that was a real bonus - extra time for review at the end. There's nothing easy about this exam at all - I put a lot of time and effort into studying for it.

My advice to anyone wanting to get a decent grade would be to get the SCJP Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (the one that's always mentioned - it covers everything), work through that in full a couple of times writing zillions of little programs along the way (or not so little ones when it comes to concurrency...). I also wrote down study notes for trickier gotcha's and certain material along the way which I think helped. Check this FAQ as well - but a word of warning: it's easy to get confused and panic when following long threads with lots of contributions on the 'hot topics'... particularly autoboxing!

Good luck. I'm off for a beer...

Tom
