I got my results on Monday and passed with 377 out of 4000 or 94%. I am very pleased, but also disappointed with the score for the network Server as I do not understand why Sun deducted 23 points from it:
General Con: 100 100
Documentation: 70 70
OOD: 30 30
GUI: 40 40
Locking: 80 80
Data Store: 40 40
Network Server: 40 17
Total: 400 377

In any case, thank you to everybody on JavaRanch because without them, I would not have been able to get such a good score. Thanks again.

oli: I got my grade back and got 375. I lost 13 in documentation and 12 in GUI. I thought I did a good GUI and obviously not good enough to SUN's grader. It seems you did a good job on these two sections. Can you post a snapshot of what your GUI look like so that I may get some sense? Thanks.
What your next exam plan? SCEA? I am thinking is it is appropriate to proceed to SCEA after SCJD.
