I got 42 out of 60 - not bad but not great either.

I was quite surprised to miss 60% of the fundamentals questions

The test was slightly easier than your average mock exam. Surprisingly though there were no questions on the new Java 6 topics like Console and NavigableMap and stuff.

I had skipped the chapter on development due to time constraints and I am sure that I took a hit because of that.

Anyway, thanks to all the ranchers for their help during the prep Now I guess I'll just relax and focus on college.

Many congratulations on clearing the exam.

Perhaps because output of the random number generator used(to pick questions from the pool) was not distributed evenly across its interval.

Take time to read that chapter too; every thing in the SCJP exam is basic and important.

Yea, seemed so. There were questions from chapters just lumped together instead of being spread out through the exam. Quite odd.

I agree here, I will be revising everything once again when my holidays start.
