Today I appeared and cleared SCJP with 90 %. I was
reading and referring nearly all the books/test available and
had nearly ended up in the dilemma whether to appear for it
right know or not. This was due to the variety of ques. and
topics covered in them. They were all different. But finally
I decided to go for it.
Only one book is the bible for it i.e. RHE. Without
it u should not think of going to the exam. Each line and
topic of it is reflected somewhere in the questions. The
ques. are much straightforward, not tricky. About mock tests
Marcques Green tests 1 and 2 are very much like the real one.
Last but not the least I would like to thank everyone
participating in the forum at JAVARANCH. Its a fabulous work
u all are doing. My sincere thanks to everyone who has answered
my queries and also relegiously supplied tips in bulletin boards.
My special thanks to Ajith Kalambella, Anna.
I had ques. on :
2 on I/O
1 on Gridbag
3-4 on threads
3-4 on exceptions
4 simple type-ins
The exam laid most emphasis on language concepts rather
than APIs. No cramming was required and there were no ques. where u have to remember
various constructors in API.(This u have to actually take the exam to
believe it, as I am believing now). Overloading,Overriding,
constructors were present everywhere.
Thanks once again. I would still be a regular visitor
here. I am from Mumbai, India. If I could be of any help to anyone aspiring for the exam I would oblige to do so.
