I passed with 86%. Ofcourse, I was hoping to get more, but my test was quite difficult. I got the dreaded Socket and MediaTracker Questions and very difficult Thread Questions.
Well, I'm happy that the tension is gone. Now maybe I can work on some other certification like Oracle.
All the best to all the aspiring programmers!!

Socket and MediaTracker? I thought that this was merely a rumour...
Or were they questions that happened to use Socket and MediaTracker only for illustrative purposes, but didn't require knowledge about those topics?
Thanks

Congrats Vishakha
Since you've got all the so called dreaded questions, could you please give some pointers to the amt of difficulty of these questions and how much preparation would be needed? I am sure this may prove helpful to all scjp aspirants.
Thanks

Thanks all of you.
I prepared for about last 2 months. I concentrated on Bill Brogden's exam cram and Java 2 certification guide by Simon Roberts and Phillip Heller. Also I solved every mock test that I could lay my hands on. I'd also thought that the Q's on Socket and MediaTracker were a rumour so I never paid attention to them. I didn't read any material on this topic so I cannot grade theit difficulty. Read about Socket's getInputStream() method and MediaTracker's waitForId() method and do your Thread's thoroughly. Rest all is fine.
All the Best.
Vishakha.
