Hallo every body
i ve just finished the test couple of hour ago.
I want to thank every body here , may be no one knows me here, but i read all the topics and i nearly know every body
i want to thank Thomas Paul, his artcils about Assertion and Collection helped me alot in the exam.
i got this score thanks to javaranch, i learnt a lot from this site :
As for my preparation :
1- I used "The complete Jaca certification guide" - i dont advice it to anyone cause simply its incomplete
2- I did a lot of mock exam and danchisholm exams are the best , they are a bit harder than those in the exam.
3- I took me one month preparation full time knowing that i ve a short previous experience in J2ee.
As for the exam :
i got a lot of question about Threads , Garbage collector, 3 questions about assertions, a lot of questions about Collection (all the answers were in the artcile of Thomas, its just about understanding collection)....
Now i am planing to take the devlopper certification, can any one advice me Good Books please
Thanks and wish good luck for the others

Radouane- nicely done!
Rishi- You can find Thomas Paul's articles in our past newsletter (there's lots of good stuff in there).
Unni- I can guarantee you'll get questions on Collections and Exceptions on the real exam. Everyone's test is a bit different so the number of questions in each topic may be different than someone elses exam. But you DEFINITELY need to understand that stuff. And if you don't already know it -- study inner classes and threads a lot too.
But anyway -- I'm moving this to the Sun Certification Results forum -- please continue the congratulations and discussion there.

thanks every body
for you Unni , question about collection were just about understanding and the article of Thomas was a good summary, u ve just to read it carfully .
i mean by understanding u ve to know how each class react and what does it require and of course u ve to know the difference between all classes, i did not get any direct question about the api of collection
hope that help
