Hey guys...
THIS POST IS BIT STRANGE.. BUT WORTH READING..

I am very happy 2day...
(FINALLY) I cleared SCJP..

I got voucher from my friend (i think it was around OCT-08 which expires on 07-Aug-09)
Then i started my preparation and withing in few days our new big-bang project starts at my job ( My day job is also Java coding, & i love it) ,
and that's when my preparation stops...& never started in near future..

After few months, In June - 09 end , i thought of giving SCJP again, and finally re-opened my voucher on last sunday (05-July) ..
& I had a big QUESTION MARK on my face...about Expiry date: 07/08/09, Is it dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy???

After searching JavaRanch forum, i found it's mm/dd/yy so expiry date of the voucher was 08-JULY-09... (Only 1 day left )

& After 15 hours of preparation, i managed to get 88% score.. Its not what i wanted... But i am very happy..

I just want to make a note that.
--------------
Even if you are experienced java developer (as i am)..
Buddy, You need prepare for SCJP.. [RIGHT ???]
--------------
& I can prove..
For example
It does not provide compiler... . THERE ARE NO RED LINES UNDER CODE STATEMENTS..

----
& Another point, Dont be lazy.. Give 10 minutes per day.. You will definitely get very good score

You must be a genius - after 15 hours of preparation you scored 88%.
But maybe the exam is easy

Greetings Lukas,
I am no genius..
Java is what i do since last 2 years....

i don't know.. I don't have any idea, how to measure Easy or hard for Core-Java..
But questions were good...
For example, you cannot tell by looking at some question that whether it is testing your concurrency concepts, OO concepts or Collections...
