Howdy my friends.

It's with a great pleasure that I'm here to say that I passed the exam SCJP 6

Many thanks to Katherine Sierra and Bert Bates for their amazing book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Certified-Programmer-Study-Guide-CX-310-065/dp/0071591060
You don't need anything else to pass this exam!

Great mock exams: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScjpMockTests

About the exam:
- 60 questions
- 180 minutes
- 3 minutes per question!!! It's a lot of time. You don't need to hurry. The first minutes I was looking to the clock, but when I finished there was 70 minutes left.
- When there's only one answer, it's a radio button. When there are more, it's a check box, and it says the number of answers to check!! That helps a lot.
- You receive a plastic paper and a pen.


Tips:
- Buy the book!
- Create a file to put your answers from the book's questions. When you're answering, for every question you miss you write the reason, like:
join() throws InterruptedException
the enhanced for loop must declare its first operand
- Two days before the test, answer the questions all over again and create another file to put these answers. These files will be a great resource for your review.
- Don't use IDE. Use a text editor like gedit or Notepad++.
- When doing the exam, write in the paper the questions that you want to review most.

Well, that's it.

Thanks community!
