The absolute best way I found to study for the test was to answer other peoples questions. Even if it takes you an hour or more of looking things up and writing test code to make sure you're right it is well worth the effort. The next time it'll only take you half of the time then after that things will become easier and easier.
Pick a topic, then go for it, when you've got that one down, go to another, if your anser a couple of questions a day for week on a topic I know you'll get a lot more from it than just reading the material.

Hi Chetna,
Dont be dishearteaned. Its part of life.
Be brave and confident. The time will be yours. You are not the first and only one not to pass the exam in first attempt.
Look for your week areas, work hard on them. I am not sure if you are aware of the case of percy. It was similar case, but after working hard on weak areas and using mocks like J@Whiz, percy made it.
You can and WILL DO the same.
We are here to help you out.
All the best

Hi chetna,
Sorry to hear you did not pass first time round. Take heart, you are not alone.
This link may help with java.util
For operators and assignments and the awt package I can only suggest you go through the Sun tutorials on the subjects.
For threads, this may help Introduction to Threads
Best of luck on your next attempt.

Well my friend
i don't think that you have a lot of time to cover all of your bases if you are going to take this exam within a month.i would start reviewing in the order i listed below :
#1 14% in operators ans assignments,
#2 57% in flow control and exceptions handling,
#3 50% in util package
#4 25% in awt package,
#5 42% in threads
your goal here is to pass the test not to master Java within a month ( I hope your next goal would be to master it ). I also believe if you can increase your score @ relatively easy sections like #1 & #2 and keep the same % @ the rest you should be fine.if you can afford I always recommend Khalid Mughal's book and JQ+
good luck

Hi Chetna,
I also had a similar experience, failing the first time with 59%.
You should certainly know that you are not alone, and lots of people have had to retake this test.
Take this "opportunity" to focus on your weak areas and then return to kick some serious certification exam butt and you will come out on the top.
In hindsight I am (kind of) glad that I failed the first time. If I had passed but just barely, I never would have spent that extra time studying some very important material that I now know that much better.

to score 61 % --- all u need to do.. is learn the fundametals of OOPS programming.... play around with them for a while ... learn IO constructors... and go give the exam... u will get 61% for sure..
i will be glad to help anyone of you for any problem, faced by you.
