Hai all,
I took my exam yesterday and scored 85%. I lost most of my thread questions. Otherwise the score would have been better. Overall the exam questions are cleverly made.
I would like to thank K & B for their excellent book. It covers all the exam objectives perfectly. Apart from that, a little knowledge about daemon threads, interrupt() and the methods in the Collections classes would help.
Thanks to Marcus green, Dan, javaranch. The actual test is not as tough as Dan's. But it's good working it out to learn some of the key concepts. Also the posts really helped me a lot. So I might be able to do my contribution hereafter.
I had a question which had a choice saying, "JLS does not have explanation about this". Rest of the choices did not match the situation. So I really didn't know whether to choose this.
What next? And is there any order in which I should take java certifications, like whatif I want to skip developer exam and do someother? I have worked a little in C++, VB, java servlets, XML. Would ASP.net help? I welcome any suggestions.
Thank you.

Great score, congratulations!
We're glad the book helped!

Thank you Bert and Ana for your reply. Ana, do I need to learn about using JavaBeans also apart from servlets and JSP? I know it takes a quite a lot of time just setting up the system. I went through the objectives. Can u provide some links for the resources that I can go through before I really get started.
I have really not decided on what to do next. Pretty confused.
Thank you.
