Hi Pavan,
Be cool. Read the two minute drills in the k&b. Review the key concepts one more time. Stay relaxed. You will score good. All the best for your exam.

Hi Pavan,

As you said you have only one day of time from now, I would only suggest you
to stick to the mock of K&B book and if still remains sometime do master exam.

Remaining time:

1- Two minutes drill
2- Exam watch

Before you go for real exam:

Review exam watch!!! It will help you for sure.


Thanks,

Marcus' Java Certification HeadQuarters is where you will find the exams - but you may have to use your initiative to find all three mock exams.

Michael,
initially i flunked the Diagnotic Test & Practise 1 & 2 Exams then i started peeking by My Final Exam i was averaging 70%, In K&B i managed to consistently flunk but the exam itself is of high difficulty level, especially the 2nd which i downloaded from the Ozbone site had a pass % of 81!.
But believe me the real exam is much easier!!! with practise & constant revision of K & B book i managed to clear it. i guess i should have answered wht you wanted

Sadhna,
Thank you!!!

Bob,
U have done the right thing by hooking to javaranch!!! great place, great community, the best you can get for certification studies.
