Hi, all, this morning i passed with 94%. Thank you all for your wishes and helps. The three questions i missed are in <code>Flow control and exception handling</code>, <code>Threads</code> and<code>java.awt Package</code>. Time is not a problem, i spent 53 minutes for the first round, and another 15 minutes to re-check it but made no modification, and then submit my test. I use the book "A programmer's guild to Java certification" and read it three times. I also purchased JQ+, it really helps. The score i got in jq+ are as follows: 1(81), 2(88), 3(81), 4(83), 5(83), 6(91), 7(93), 8(86), 9(98). I finished most of the mock exam in Anna's page. For Marcus Green's exam, i got something like: 1(86), 2(93), 3(88). And last, i visited javaranch very often, trying to answer questions and also get various helps for my own question. Thank you, JavaRanch! There are indeed many question on IO, but mainly require the familiarity with the constructors. Threads questions are generally more difficult to answer than other parts for me. There is a thread question with code of 20 lines, other code questions are all short and simple. And last point, always re-read the question. Sometimes the question asked what is the output, but in fact, the code doesn't compile because for example, not override properly, and so on. I met about 5 questions of that type. Any other questions, please feel free to ask me. Best luck to all who are taking the test! Guoqiao

Thank you, Ashik. I am happy that both of us are in the 90s group. My next plan is to take "BEA Weblogic Certification", it is about Weblogic as well as J2EE, I think the market will be in demand of it soon. And what is more, by taking that exam, i am going to improve my knowledge on J2EE, which is currently used in my project. To Dhanashri: in fact, the book "A programmer's guild to Java certification" has a very good cover on garbage collection. Best regards, Guoqiao
