Hi people out there!!
I’m writing this post at Porto Alegre, where I did today the SCJP exam for Java 6.
And?? I passed the exam!
I answered correctly 68 of the 72 available questions. Which gave me a score of 94%.
The exam was very dificult. A lot of questions about concurrency, collections (including some of the new Java 1.6 interfaces of collections framework: java.util.NavigableMap, java.util.NavigableSet), generics and API contents (including java.io.Console of Java 1.6).
All others testing sections are involved in almost all questions, by all the way, like fundamentals of the language, declarations, initialization, scoping and flow control. A bunch of questions about object orientation concepts too.
Having all this questions, full of little tricks each one, mixed in drag and drop, and multiple choice formats, achieving this certification is a good choice to prove your knowledge about the Java Language, no doubt.
Now, I will give a small “summer break” (it’s very hot here : ), and enjoy this achievment.
See you soon!
