Hello everyone
After 2.5 months of preparation, I am now OCPJP.

My preparation:

I read K&B SCJP 6 Study guide twice with a highlighter in my hand, kept reviewing that highlighted notes, also made my own notes of traps and gotchas.

I didn't do much coding, but gave a lot of mock exams.
Here are my results of mocks I gave in chronological order:

  • K&B Practice book Assessment 1 - 71%
  • K&B Practice book Assessment 2 - 28%
  • Whizlabs Diagnostic - 60%
  • Whizlabs Practice 1 - 63%
  • Whizlabs Practice 2 - 83%
  • Whizlabs Practice 3 - 79%
  • Whizlabs Practice 4 - 70%
  • Whizlabs Final - 81%
  • K&B Practice book Assessment 2(Again) - 57%
  • Scjptest 1 - 81%
  • K&B Practice book 1 - 53%
  • Certpal 1 - 74%
  • Certpal 2 - 73%
  • Certpal 3 - 80%
  • K&B Practice book 2 - 75%
  • K&B Practice book 3 - 66%
  • K&B Practice book 4 - 71%
  • MasterExam 1 - 79%
  • Examlab diagnostic - 70%
  • Examlab 1 - 65%
  • Examlab 2 - 60%
  • Examlab 3 - 58%


  • Thanks to:

    Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates: The books (K&B Study guide and K&B Practice exams) were very well written and interesting.
    Devaka Cooray: Examlab.org is great with better interface. It matched closely to the real exam I gave yesterday. Learnt a lot from it.
