Yes, you will do well.

And so I don't mislead anyone... whomever doesn't have all of those skills can pick up most of what they need for the exam from Andrew's book, "SCJD Exam with J2SE 5, Second Edition".

Yes!!! Andrew's book is the best so far. I already learn twice for each chapter and want to learn it once more before I take the assignment.

Hi Jeff,

Yes, you should be fine on the assignment.
