Did it this morning. Many thanks to the ranchers for their active participation in these forums.
The distributed JVM questions were tricky (as usual). I felt two questions were not fully correct. I strongly feel they should let us know at the end our INCORRECT answers, so that we can correct our understanding of the topics. Just giving a section-wise score helps only if we get 100% in some section, and then we know nothing was wrong in those topics.
My scores are :
Servlet container model= 80%
Servlets using session management = 75%
JSPs using JavaBeans = 80%
JSPs using Custom Tag library = 87%
All others 100%.

It was a 2 months of study. Liked the Hanumant book. It is "the best" one. However, some of the exam questions were quite difficult and needed a thorough understanding of the subjects. I personally liked it, as it made the exam process little more interesting (considering the amount dull-ness in memorizing the APIs and DD).
Well, before I forget, one tip that I used even for my SCJP1.4 exam (thanks to Dan Chisholm for the idea). I used FLASH CARDS for the APIs and web.xml elements. This really helped. I think I got all such question right.
Thanks, Sudd

Hi Gopal -
You just make some cards/or pieces of papers, jotting down the API/method signatures and DD elements, at least for the important APIs. One card can have all the relevant methods from one particular interface/class. It is a good tool for memorizing, as you can bundle these cards and carry them anywhere.
Hope that helps.

Thanks to everyone for all the moral support.
Vivek - There were quite a lot of questions on API names, though not that much on the actual signature. But my suggestion is that one may always goof up some of the tricky questions. There were some questions on distributed JVMs, which had pretty long wording in all the options, which made it quite confusing. So why not get the APIs and the DDs 100% right, which is relatively straight forward and easy to do.
Thanks, Sudd
