Thanx to ALL!

Hi everybody,
Just passed with 76%.
It actually seemed to me for some reason that was not that hard.
Most of the questions are very much straight forward.
So if u study hard u'll pass I'm sure.
I strongly recommend Khalid Mughal book and also Simon Roberts, Phillip Heller and Michael Ernest book. Also JQPlus software was pretty helpful.
I'd like to thank all from Java Ranch for making that possible.
And of course everyone else who doesn't spare an effort in order to provide an answer to the endless questions.
This is a great site where one can learn a lot about Java.
And the remarkable thing is all that energy that one can feel by browsing it.
It has been enormous insparation for me and I'm sure I'll visit this site many times.
Good luck to all.
Vijay, Bakshi

Congratulations Gueorguiev,
I would like to know if Khalid's book is sufficient or do I have to go throught the RHE too, coz everyone says that Khalid's books is more detailed.
About the JQPlus, how good is it? Are the quesitons harder or easier in comparison the the real exam. How much should one score in the JQPlus to do well in the real exam - your opinion from experience.

The answer to yr question VJ is that I have both books. Khalid's book is straight to the point nothing that you don't need to know. RHE is also good. I went thru both and also took the final exams which are on the back of the books. If you score above
70-80% on these exams u r good to go. Now regarding JQPlus I would tell that helped me a lot. The question r almost the same as the real one and sometimes even more dificult. The environment is also pretty similar to the original so kind of sets u the real one.
To answer Vladimir's question. Don't worry about the blanks just don't put yr answer in quotes.
Good luck guys.
I agree. Here's the link:
