Hello dear Ranchites
eople who r appearing within a week ,may not waste their time in reading this thread.
let me make a few complaints ::
I was under the impression that if u know some real Questions,U have to email the moderators directly.
since I had already appeared for this exam once & failed ,I was definitely being exposed to some real Question.& to my surprise when I emailed one moderator about clarifying few Qs,before I attempt 2nd time,the reply was the Q are from real exams & so he would not be interested in replying.
and I have literally seen that more than 70% qs. are being postmortem in java ranch publicly ,that is accepted.
isn't it a contradiction.
2 TOO BIASED ,& RESTRICTIONS APPLIED ONLY ON FEW
.I have gone th'each & every thread of java ranch,starting from 3rd of sep'1999-3rd of sep'2000-I did all this at my own pace ,
taking up the threads month wise.I did not read it only for exams,but somehow I really found the discussions very interesting.
I had asked for XXX'URL,coz in those days Shan was discussing lots of Qs,whose url I couldn't trace it.On asking the same in java ranch ,I got personal mails from moderators ,as to please stop asking for XXX,s url ,or else your thread would be deleted.At that time ,the whole world had that particulr URL,& me like a fool believed in their words & did not ask for more.the result was I failed by few ,I got 68% on my first attempt.
On my 2nd attempt I did a bit of R & D ,tried to do a bit of politics rather than java in this site & got hold of particular xxx's URL.
guess what ,on 29th of sep '2000 I cleared it with 88%.No doubt I had read jls,Patrick Nor.,Simon,BIll,& all the 42 mock test as listed in maha's site.I always use to score 70+& -.when u want to learn swimming u have to be all in water,bookish knowledge does not work,same way when u are learning a pro.lang-u have to eat ,drink ,only java.when I scored 68% I was really very happy coz the score belonged just to me & my hardwork,but after scoring 88%,I am not satisfied with myself.I remember 1 thread saying that the paper was so simple that he literally felt cheated by sun,I understood all the secrets as to how people scored 90+ just by studying for 2-3 weeks. I think Frank Carver ,Paul Wheaton are the real scjp.infact anybody who passed before 15th jan of this year ,should definitely be credited.leaving all this apart I hope moderators are reading between the lines.
3 BEAWARE,DO NOT FALL IN FALSE TRAP
This is something really interesting..My very first thread in java ranch was"need a tutor for scjp".........would be paid well.can u believe I got more than 15 replies from all over the world.since I reside in mumbai 13 of them were rejected due to ill locations.
I myself is an MBA & java being my first programming lang.I decided a deal with someone named daneb shah.I think moderators would remember him.he is the so called famous (DENISE THE MENACE)we met one day,& he disappered the very next day.The only reason for doing this could probably be
1.he did not like my face(kidding)
2 he found me too dumb to teach java.
-THIS COULD BE???
I want to send him the message that I have scored almost the same marks as to what he had it.
4.HARD WORK ALWAYS PAYS
Infact I had already secured a job in US based company in NEWYORK,even before I cleared my scjp,since I was already into the pool,I decided to swim,rather come out of water learning nothing.The best part is I had posted them the failure marksheet ,but since in 5 chapters I had 100% ,he was ready to hire me on that basis.I had a personal +phone interview which I would post it soon in my next thread ,so that people have an idea of the same.
.my special thanks to my inlaws who beared with me when I studied for about 10-12 hours together.
all active java ranchites who boosted my confidence for 2nd attempt.
to all the moderators-who has come up with this site,witout which it would have been impossible to clear this exams+helping on the minutest doubt which you have.
all java URL makers ,which gave an excellent platform before going for the exams.
last but not least Chetan nain,Abhilash,Taqi,Chen,Ajith,Maha for their timely response.
If any thing written unfair,moderators can delete this thread at their own will.please do not take it personally.no hard feelings/grudge for anyone.after all we belong to same family .
7ULTIMATE-NOTHING COMPARED TO THIS
.The way one accepts/loves their lifepartner,in same way I love javaranch with all it's negatives.nothing compared to this site.it's the no. one interactive site which I have come across.I would definitely continue to be here whenever I have time.definetly all my 88% belong to javaranch.
8 I have more than 50 theory Q on threads & gc ,I will post it ASAP in java ranch.
sorry for taking too much of your time.
