Hi all,

Recently found out that I passed the SCJD. See my score below:

The maximum number of points is 400, to pass you need a score of 320.
Section Summary:
Section Max Actual Points Points
General Con: 100 90
Documentation: 70 65
OOD: 30 30

Thanks to all the great people on this forum, and especially Andrew Monkhouse =).

Good luck to all of you out there studying to take the SCJD.

Congrats Henrik

Given that you got 80/80 for locking, could you tell me how you dealt with deadlock ?

Thanks,
Alan.

Congratulations!

I noticed people who recently passed scjd all lost points at general concern and gui. Very interesting.

Hi,

To Alan:

My recommendation is to read this thread:
https://coderanch.com/t/187767/java-developer-SCJD/certification/Logical-File-Locking-nested-synchronisation


To Chandrasekhar:

I didn't prepare at all before taking the exam. I think that if you have written all the code that you submit then you won't have any problems with the exam.

As for books when writing the app... I had Kathey Sierras and Bert Bates book for the SCJP&SCJD. However, I think that this forum provides all the necassary info needed in order to succeed with the assignment.

Regards,
Henrik

Congratulations.

I recall the passing score is 51%. Did SUN change it?

The static lockedRecords Map jumped out at me! I also have a deletedRecords Map.

Thx!
