After 9 months of hardship, sacrifice and uncertainty, I have passed SCJP 6 finally! I scored 73%! not a very good score but I passed and that will be it.

for those who'll ask if how hard is the exam. Well I'll tell you this!... it's very very very hard! but as the Top Hero in our country here in the Philippines once said "Fighting in the ring is easy if you train hard enough - Manny Pacquiao" .

So study hard and be prepared to sacrifice. If you think it's hard.. yes it is hard! because It must be.. If it is easy then everyone else can do it! This is how you differentiate from others..

Special thanks to Deveka Cooray's ExamLab and Kath Sierra and Bert Bates for their great book that I've purchase. And also to whizlabs that I've also purchased.


Special thanks to this forum Java Ranch! you guys have been very helpful!!

I'm sorry, I forgot to explain about the 9 months. Don't be afraid, 3 months is more than enough as what many people say here who already finished taking the exam. It will all depend on the situation of each of us. There are some factors why it took me this long.

1. I'm also working already as a java programmer. It's just that I want to build up more credentials in my java career and also want to solidify my understandings about the language. Now everything is crystal clear to me on how to use Java.

2. I'm also a family man. If your working and you have family and kids, it's very very very challenging to find more time to review.

3. I have over reviewed.

4. Because of the pauses I made reviewing. I sometimes forgot what I have reviewed and continue to fail in mock exams. Very very frustrating days of my life.

5. Stress makes me put to sleep after work and no time to review.

and many more..

So you see.. 3 months is standard review only if, you have no other thing to do and really really really focus on reviewing for java only. and if you are single. But if you are working and a family man with kids. I think it's very very very hard, but also adds more challenge..

My advice.. Don't over review.. don't stop reviewing.. and don't get under confident if you continue to fail in mock exams.. What's important is that you really really understand the core concept of Java. Memorization is 2nd ..

Good Luck!
