Hi guys,

Finally I cleared too. I have been waiting for 2 months to write this here in the forum, like I have seen many others.
Am a bit disaapointed with the score, was expecting upwards of 90%, but I know what the spec has to say in this case - 'A PASS IS A PASS...!'.
Here is what I did -
1. Total time - 2.5 months
2. HFSJ - 3 readings
3. Whizlabs and Jdiscuss papers
Didnt read the specs which cost me about 4 questions. But I am not repentant, cant read all those epics.I did SCJP(95%) and this back to back in 6 months along with a lot of office work too. I am feeling a bit tired and will take some rest before I decide on the next goal.
Best of Luck to all of you... I am going to have a big party tonight...!

Hey Firstly Hearty Congratulations.....

I can understand how much it is difficult to manage work as well as preparation for certification as you cannot say NO to work during office hours. Give me some tips how you manage work as well as studies as I am also planning to give the exam within 15 days. Thanks in advance for your tips and CONGRATS again for the splendid success!!!

Cheers!!!

Thanks to all of you...!

Siddharth, to manage between work and the exam, you will need to firstly make sure you dont get way too much work, atleast during the last month of your prep. This may need some diplomacy. My senior were very understanding and gave only enough work to last about 8 hrs.
After that, I had made it a point to study 2 hrs in the office library itself. Then I would go back home and study another 2-3 hrs. On weekends, I put in 6 hrs per day.
Max, my score in jDiscuss varied between 74 and 92. In HFSJ final mock, I scored 78. In Whizlabs, my score was between 71 and 82.

Hope that is of use to some...
