Hi,
Its my time know to write. I am very happy to inform u all that i have passed the SCJP exams with 95% marks. Im a frequent visiter to this site and this site has provided me lot of help. I would also like to thank all of u who have help me.
It wasn't easy though coz i got questions on sockets(2), mediatracker(1), FilterInputStream(1) and many more. There were around five confusing onces as well. Two on threads, one on GC, one on encapsulation, one on GridBag.
This is how the question came :
5 on threads, out of that two were confusing.
4 on GC, 1 was really bad
3-4 on exception handling
2 on sockets
1 on mediatracker
1 on filterinputstream(never heard of questions on this)
and lots of them on overriding, overloadig, initialization, language fudas.
I hope it helps and Best of luck to all those who r going to give this exam.

Thanks
Sanjeet

Congratulations! It sounds like you got some tough questions, so your score is really great!
My test is tomorrow, so I guess I'll better take another look at MediaTracker and sockets. :-)

congrats sanjeet,
it is a really big score. and that too despite of such tough questions. In comparison to you, I've got a bit easy set of questions.
But one thing is common, question are very much confusing.
and if you lose ur attention for just a second, then u can lost one question(thats what I've done in my exam due to illness.)
anyway, it is very thrilling to think that we are SCJP now.
congrats again and best wishes for a happy future
Ravindra..

Congratulations Sandeep!...I guess you pulled it off quite well inspite of tough questions. Good show!
Prakash, the SCJP objectives have not changed. A lot of people( including me ) have been asked about the MediaTracker and Socket questions before in the SCJP. The Sun's SCJP objectives are not too-specific in terms of actual classes the questions can be asked about.
The questions on MediaTracker are usually related to blocking of threads when the waitForID(int) method is called. The questions on Sockets are usually related to how a socket can be used as a stream. Don't panic and read about how these two classes fit into the conceptual-objectives being examined. If you search through the previous posts here, you will also find a couple of links to MediaTracker tutorials.
Good luck( and again, don't panic! )

Congrats ! That's a great score !! Best of Luck for your future!
For all planning to give the exam , SOCKET PROG. is NOT included in the exam objectives.The questions u will get will be from the exam objectives(read every line from Roberts-Heller especially File I/O then u will come to know what I am talking about).
However u will need to know a bit about the MediaTracker class.U can get max 1-2 questions(based on my experience)on MediaTracker.
