Hey Guys,
I cleared the exam today (good part) and I barely made it(another good part also I learned a lot in the exam and afterall thats what the exams for. )
The test taught me couple of things that I want to share with potential test takers:
1) You might not want to rely on only Java language specification as the sole source(http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/second_edition/html/jTOC.doc.html)
2)You need to study ... Just dont start after the finals , leaving a week to study
3)Call the test center and make sure you get the directions from them. Dont rely on mapquest only. In my case the address was " National city plaza" and nobody in the town knew where or what it was although it was a very small town. The center turnt out to be in the Natinal City Bank building.
4)The thread questions was fine but I had neglected pass by reference and pass by value. I had a hard time at those
5)Encoding ??
Now time for the job hunt...

Congratulations. Pass is a pass! do not be worried about the score. Hope that you get a nice job. Is it true that more than 20 questions having around 40 lines of code? I am scared to death. Please let me know.
