Sun Certified Java Programmer

Filed under: Uncategorized — Anthony Park @ 5:40 pm

I recently took and passed the Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP) exam. Because we use alot of Java at work, I wanted to see what the test was like. In the process, I learned alot of stuff about the Java language, especially some of the new features that are in Java 5.

I scored an 87% on the exam. While the test didn’t tell you which questions you got wrong, it was broken out by category:

91% – Declarations, Initialization and Scoping
100% – Flow Control
90% – API Contents
87% – Concurrency
80% – OO Concepts
70% – Collections/Generics
90% – Fundamentals

To study for the exam, I purchased the book: “SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide“. This book was awesome! It told me everything I needed to know for the exam, and was actually pretty fun to read.

All in all, I was pretty happy with the difficulty of the test and the amount that I learned while studying. I think it was a worthwhile use of the money and time.
