HI Frank,

That is awesome! I plan on sitting the exam very soon, please share some of your preparation techniques.
I did ExamLab and found it very difficult, scoring only 43% in the first test, I also ran out of time doing it.
I did better in the free Whizlab test which has only 28 questions..i got 80% there.

Please let us know which mock tests you took. Thanks and Many Congrats!

Hello,

Some Java experience is of great help.
Also, I read THE book: SCJP Study Guide for Java 6. And did its questions.
Also, I took some LearnKey exams (included with that book), Whizlabs exams and some other free exams (can be found in this site).

LearnKey and book questions are difficult, often misleading. Whizlabs is easier and still a little harder than the official exam.
The official exam doesn't have misleading questions; I mean, for example, questions that seem to talk about exeptions when the problem is an unitialized variable. At least, I don't remember any of those. Also, I don't remember questions where the problem is that they "forgot" to put a try/catch or a throws when calling a method (e.g. Thread.sleep()).

There are not many tricky questions in the official exam, but I remember one. It was similar to this one:
Another tricky one: Mark the JavaBean compliant methods (only 2): addMouseListener, addListener, removeMouseListener, deleteMouseListener, registerMouseListener.

Just a few suggestions:

In the exam:
- There's plenty of time for the exam, don't worry about it. But... (see next)
- Don't waste time checking your answers: read carefully the question and the answers (the answers are a clue), write down the program in a piece of paper if it helps you (I did it many times), answer the question and forget it, or mark the question if you want to check it later, but don't do it with all the questions or you'll run out of time (I know a fried that had this problem).
- You can't re-open drag&drop questions without loosing the answer, so answer them and forget them. They're not very difficult, anyway.
- There are easy questions, so when you find one don't suspect there must be a trap somewhere (I thought it!).

Before the exam:
- Read the SCJP Study Guide.
- Do practice exams (Study Guide, LearnKey, Whizlabs, whatever), the more the better; it's not enough to be a Java expert.

congrats Frank.......
that was an awesome score.......
I too did SCJP but got only 69% and thus i was both happy and unhappy about it.

Now planning for SCWCD.
Will definetely take it. But this time i want to score more than 90%.

Thus i am delaying for the registration.

You too start off for SCWCD.......both of us can go over topics hand in hand
And i too will get guidance from a topper parallely........what say?
