I just passed the SCJP today. I don't have the high power 90's or 100% test scores that got announced constantly in this forum by others, but I feel good and accomplish something. Seeing all the high scores posted before my exam, I feel quite low because I know I will never get that high. In fact, I was wondering why SUN made the passing grade 51% while almost everyone is getting 90%. I must be stupid or something. Anyway, for these people who are not top tier but still want to pass the exam and make a good living, here is my 2 cents:
- Concentrate on the Java fundamentals. I over-prepared myself by doing a lot of mock exams. In the end, I lost the reality of the importance of the fundamentals.
- Use the K&B book, read every inch of it and do the exercises.
- That's should be enough.
