Hi guys,

I've been a silent reader of this forum and I like to thank posters on this forum for their advice. I recommend using K&B book and the excellent ExamLab freeware for practicing with mock exams. Kudos Devaka, tremendous work! Obviously you had some feedback on people who already passed the exam because I found some of the question wording to be very similar to your mock exam questions, that made me feel right at home in the real exam.

Aside from the fundamentals I found there were 0 questions on Serialization. I expected a fair amount of questions on generics/collections, autoboxing and java API contents and I did have them. So my advice to you, especially if you are someone who already passed an older version of this exam. Don't underestimate it and focus on the new stuff that appeared in Java 5 and 6.

I bought Enthuware mock exam SCJP 6.0 and I was disappointed by the lack of content covering Java 5 and 6, there was also many typos and sometimes confusing explanations but nevertheless it's pretty good value for the low cost 32$ CAD of the software and is also good material to review Java fundamentals.

Also I recall I missed a tricky question (one of the 3 questions I missed) on inner classes and scoping, will the below compile and run without exceptions? ...

Sorry for the deletion, but I could not tell from your post whether you were posting a mock question, or a question from the actual exam. The first is okay, the later is forbidden due to copyright issues.

Ouch, you are right, the question was from the real exam... Sorry about this.

But anyways all I can say is that it seems like Sun also has difficulty levels on the various questions which means you are likely to miss 1 or 2 questions because they are really hard even though you were very well prepared.

I am very sorry to hear that you found typos in our simulator. We would really appreciate if you could let us know about it. We also offer full refund if you report any 3 mistakes to us.

Regarding the coverage of Java 5 and 6, our simulator is for the regular SCJP 6 exam and not for the upgrade exam so you might have felt that percentage of questions on these topics is less. Even so, if you could please let us know of any specific topic on which you felt the coverage was not enough, we will definitely work on improving it.

thank you for your valuable feedback,
Paul.
