I passed scjp-5 with 90% score this morning. I would like to thank people in JavaRanch forum and free-material providers - these were my key to success. Thanks to [ DELETED ] for hosting valuable but free documents/books. Also thanks to people who providing valuable mock tests.

Some notes for exam takers -
First stage: Register for exam first! You will have the chance to re-schedule it. So, no problem. If you register, you will feel pressure to read. You can assign one month or so, based on your belief what skill level you have. Now some points -

1) Finish at least one exam book. In my case, I read the book - SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide by Katherine Sierra and Bert. I read it online from [ DELETED ]. Read, read and read it! Don't ignore two minutes drill and chapter end tests.
2) Hit as many mock exams as possible. You will get different views of same issue which you did not think before.
3) Code your self which you feel confusion while you read or giving mock exams. If you code, those lines/concepts will peep into you brain at exam hall, for sure!
4) While mock exam scores start impressing you, its time to go for exam. Night before exam, revise two minute drills from book or some notes you prepared. Hope you get it done!

I don't know what's next for me. Lets take a break first! Wish you all the best for exam takers.

JavaRanch is the site where you can get many links for mock exams. But unfortunately most of them are older, i mean not for scjp-5.0. You have to selectively use them. You can get 3/4 complete mock exam sets. Some sites give objective specific questions - like generics or thread. Since jdk-5 contains new features different from older versions, its worth to try only scjp-5 objectives. Try these links -

You get some links and links inside them. Explore.

Lots of links to make you feel tired. Good (?!) news is that most of them are not for scjp-5. But you can try common features like Threading etc.

Hope it helps.
