Hi all,

I have passed SCJA with 84%, although this was not the score I was expecting when I hit "End" button on exam.

My score is not decent enough to give you tips, but I will just provide my thoughts on preparation.

I went through both books of Mr. McKenzie couple of times, UML pdf, J2ME Sheet.

Mr. Cameron, hats off to you!!!Great books!!!

My university is affiliated with Sun Academic Initiative Program, hence I had free access to Sun's online classes and SCJA mock exams.

Other than that, here are some of the references that I would like to share.

Has anyone ever given the SAI(Sun Academic Initiative) version of SCJA exam (Exam No. starts with 212 instead of 310)?

Also, how much time does it take to get the actual certificate?

I tried to register myself to cert database and it said User information not found. Not sure why it would do that. If anyone has any insight on it, please let me know. I have already sent an email to suncert@prometric.com regarding this issue.

Its weird that they dont show you which questions were answered wrong after exam.

Anyways, you all have been extremely helpful in my preparation. Great Forum!!!

Thanks
Chintan
