Hi,

Yesterday on 22 January I took the OCAJP SE 8 tests and passed with 94%. I'm really grateful to Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff for writing such an amazing book for preparation of OCAJP. Hats off! Also, the Enthuware exam simulator is a really good one for practice tests but I found that it comparatively more difficult questions than the real exam (but as they say you can never over prepare, right? )
Apart from that I did all the questions and the practice test from Java OCA programmer practice test book by Jeanne & Scott which really did prepare me to handle awkward looking syntax and recognise all those nuances which might result in a compile time error or a runtime exception.

Thank you all here at CodeRanch for clarifying and explaining the stuff that was confusing. You guys are really great!
