Hi Guys,
I cleared the exam with 90% marks. Thanks to K & B book. I read the book cover to cover at least 5 times. There was nothing on the exam which was not covered in the book but still you need to solve a lot of practice questions to clear the exam.

Some important things about the exam:
1. Each chapter has equal weightage so don't give a chapter more preference over other.
2. Don't expect the exam center to be quiet. (going last on the day might help. I was the first one for the day and lot of people were coming in and going out in the middle of my exam.)
3. I wasn't able to review drag and drop question. The software was giving a warning that if I try to review the question then I'll have to re answer them which was really frustrating.
4. Process of elimination really works.

Can anyone tell me when will I get the actual report from Sun?? Also, should I go for SCWCD?? Can you suggest reading material for that?

Thanks,
Nikunj Jariwala

Congratulations on a great score. The test center should have given you the report when they gave you the score.

By mid-week you should receive 2 e-mails from Sun. One e-mail will give you your Sun Certification ID and have information on how to register for the Certification Database. If you do not get that e-mail, send a message to suncert_ww@oracle.com to ask about it.

Two to three weeks (or longer if you are not in the U.S.) after you register into the Certificate Database, you will receive in the postal mail a welcome kit containing your SCJP certificate and a small plastic wallet-size ID card that indicates your SCJP status. Your score is not printed on them. If you do not get that package then send a message to suncert_ww@oracle.com to ask about it.

Congrats on your score in SCJP.:-)
I'm planning to take up my SCJP exam next month.
Could you please guide me on the topics that i should lay more emphasis on?
All i know is that more weight-age is given to Generics and collections,Inner classes,Threads and I/O.
Correct me if i'm wrong.
I would really appreciate your inputs.:-)

Thanks
Shravya
