I already posted on the Results forum that I passed this exam with 100% score.

Thanks to :

1) Javaranch SCJA forum
2) Cameron Though I didn't have your book, you were always helpful.
3) My friends Somdip Sen and Fred Kalombo who were preparing along with me.
4) My other friends who were / were not preparing for SCJA, but supported me.
5) others if I missed anyone.

I got 100% and I finished the exam within 10 min almost. The secret to 100% score is I am preparing for SCJP too. So, It was very easy to answer those questions. I took very less time because I was very unhappy with the things were going in my personal life. So, I never thought of reviewing those questions even once.

Here's my experience

J2EE and J2ME : They really want you to know the high level overview.

UML : 10 page pdf is sufficient

Java Syntax: I studied from SCJP guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates since was(am in fact) preparing for SCJP too.

Make your concepts clear. Understanding the exam objectives will help you a lot. Follow the objectives properly. Tell me if you have any questions. Rather than mailing, post the questions here. Let everyone read them. I will be moving to SCJP forum now. I will still try to be active here. It's a nice forum really

I forgot to say one thing. I didn't have Cameron's book. Because I don't have Credit card. And also, because I would have to pay in foreign currency, I couldn't manage it. But hang on, if you can manage to buy that book, get that. Yes. get that. That will ease the process a lot I think.

Just follow my signature links, and you'll find my SCJA Study Guide, and the SCJA Questions guide. They've been extremely helpful in helping Greenhorns get certified.
