Thousands in my guess, have passed the SCJP exam. For reasons best known to themselves, Sun Education has not published the statistics. If you are really curious, send them an email.

Based on the sales of my books, which are not the most widely distributed, I would guess that there are several hundred thousand SCJP.

I would hope that everybody who buys one of the study guides is at least trying to pass the exam. I certainly would not recommend buying one as a reference text although some people have said that they keep using them for that after passing the exam.
I just can't see making an exam study guide a hardback book, when you won't be using it after the exam. Thats why the Exam Cram books are so compact and always in paperback.

The Java 2 (Exam Cram) is not available in Pakistan, and it is very expensive to purchase the book through web(including shipping etc.), therefore no one reads this book here, instead the R&H , joworski and maybe another certification guide is available everywhere.

I think there is a high correspondence between owning Bills Exam Cram book and eventually passing the exam
