Just come back from the test, and got 81%. Not very happy with the score, but not very bad either, is it? Thanks for the mock test authors and javaranch. I got a lot of info from them. Many mock tests cover far more than the real test in depth and width, so if you get good understanding of these mock tests, you will for sure pass the real test. Get a lot of key points and hints from websites about Java certification(javaprepare.com, jchq.net, javaranch.com).
Congratulations Paul, 81% is a very good score. Good luck in the future.

Thanks, Sean Casey. some suggestions for the test takers to come: 1. String and StringBuffer: their difference; overloadable?; after passing as parameters into some methods, what you expect from them in the calling method when they come back; 2. Inner class and local inner class: basic features (better memorizing them); 3. Thread: synchronization unavoidablly appears in the test; AND the join method (I got one). 4. static: where can or "cannot" you put the static keyword; 5. Overloading and overriding: definitely appears in the test and easy; so keep in mind getting them in your score bag and don't lose points. 6. if(), for(), switch(): what can or "cannot" you put in the (); don't let points escapes from (); 7. IO stream: for FileOutputStream constructor, pay special attention to boolean argument; for OutputStreamReader, encoding argument.
