I'm really disapointed by myself. I hoped so bad, that i'll make it through.
I've trained very hard, but never reached a score over 57% when doing the MasterExams.
But i hoped to accomplish.

I wonder how to pass the exam. There is often so much code in the questions, that i cant overlook everything. Some times the questions will punk you.
After 2 hours i've got lost of my concentration.

I thought the questions would be much easyer, but they as hard as in the MockExams from K&B. Not that i havent learned anough or understood less. I know, that i do, but i dont know why - while doing the exam - i was really uncertain about some really easy questions.

Some other questions i could not answer because i did not understand the meaning.

I've never programmed in Java. I'm really new to that language. I have practice in C# (only one year). I think, i will never make it through the exam. I'm so fearfull by doing the seccond try in two weeks.

I dont know any further. I've learned since march 2009 and still i have failed with 44%. I know my weaknesses. But the time to spend while leaarning is so intensive.

Can anyone tell me how to clear the SCJP?

I think you must try coding in Java first, in order to know what you can do with the language. In my opinion you are doing the reverse way, trying to get certified without have a certain experience.

As everyone would agree, practice makes it perfect. Try coding as much as you can to understand what it is.

Don't get disappointed. It is very important to learn the basics for each of the objectives and build your understanding by writing programs as many as you can. Never give up! Practice!!

Wish you good luck.

Keep coding that way you will understand and learn java.

C# and java may be a little similar in some features so that would be easier for you.

Use it as a learning experience, and focus on your weak areas. Don't give up, and you'll crack it!

And ask lots of questions here!

Write a lot of small programs. Very small programs to clear concepts. That also help in drag and drop questions. That is the way.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
