I can't believe it! 98%!!

I was very nervous because the exam computer hanged every 15 minutes! but never lost any single question and time freezed every time the local prometric guy rebooted the PC.

Exam program freezed when I opened the Exhibit and drag the window for a while with the mouse (to see the answers in the window behind) this a common bug?

Anyway it is history now hehehe .

Can you give me some tips on how to prepare for the exam.., are you a programmer professionally? which all books/mock tests you followed for the preparation?
Please awaiting for your reply..

For preparation I used the book "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Guide" (Sierra and Bates). Did all the questions each chapter at a time, I put as an objective to pass each chapter questionaire with a proportional of right questions as the exam (59% I think).

Then I made some mock exams and used an exam simulator. I did all the exams in the simulator but I can say that simulator exams were harder than the exam itself (which is allways good.) If you pass all the simulator tests you surely will pass the real exam.

Of course, for the Java API part I used the Java documentation (javadocs) and A LOT of little testing programs.

With the things that I didn't get right in the simulator, I made a cheat sheet to read half an hour before in my way to the exam.

Hope this help.
