Just checked the certification event history and found out I was manually certified. Haven't known the score yet. Whatever it is, I'll be happy with it. It took about one month(not full time) for me to finish everything. It was kind of rush because I need SCJD to be put into my resume ASAP.

It tured out it was alright to take the written exam before uploading the assignment. I did it but not on purpose. I didn't know I had to ask for permission to upload the assignment, when I figured it out, it was too late to cancel the appointment for the written exam. I had to go ahead to take it and uploaded the assignment when the permission was set up later that day. I'd been worrying about it because of that. Glad it was alright.

For those who's still working on it, good luck!

BTW, The only book I used is SCJD Exam with J2SE 5 by Andrew Monkhouse and Terry Camerlengo. It has all the information and technical knowledges you need to prepare for SCJD. Highly recommended.

Thanks!

I chose not to throw that exception. And in choice.txt, I documented the reason which was in real life, it was possible to have more than one room in the same hotel that meets the exact same criteria, thus duplicate record was allowed in the data file.

We really prefer that JavaRanch members don't post in languages other than English - it makes it far harder for moderators to ensure that the forums are staying nice. Translating 祝贺! into "congratulations" is relatively minor, but imagine how much harder it would be if you had posted several paragraphs in Chinese?

Regards, Andrew

Firstly congratulation !!

I am looking to prepare for the certification. Did you use ONLY the book for preparation for the assignment and essay ?

The Sun website suggests that UML experience is required for this certification. How much UML experience required for this and does the book cover this topic ?

Did the whole thing take just one month .. ie start reading/preparing, do the assignment and sit the exam ?

Thanks

Pete
