I can't believe I got that good of a grade (many thanks to Head First EJB & WhizLabs). A couple of things I noticed about the real exam that were different from the mock exams I took.

First, when you go into a drag-and-drop question make sure to think it out then and there. For some reason, it's set-up now so that if you come back to the question (to double-check yourself or whatever), it blanks-out your previous answer.

Second, maybe I got lucky but I didn't have a single question where I needed to fill in the blank. They were all either fill-in-the-blank, single choice, or multiple choice.

Third, for the multiple choice questions I was always told how many of the choices I should make (ex. select 3 of the following). This was different from the mock exams and very helpful.

Hopefully this will help you guys. Good luck with the exam!!!
