OK, I'm not proud of the score, but I'll take it.
Preparation materials were RHE and Brogden's Exam Cram. Long-time C programmer (18 years).
Started studying over the summer, with no previous Java experience, very part-time (about 5 hours a week) as Java was not my main responsibility at work.
Found the toughest material was on threads. No mock exams had questions as difficult as the exam.
Going through the exam, found that I was taking too long and had to rush the last 20 or so--pace yourself!
So, do I qualify as junior ranchhand?
Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
