YES! Finally.

I just passed the exam with score 66/72 = 91%. Although I have lot's of Java experience i haven't ever used Java 5 prior studying.

Total time given in exam was 210 minutes, which is sufficient enough. If you don't get it in 175 minutes you sure don't get it in 210 minutes. Total time used in exam was 150 minutes, witch included one round of review.

My method:

1. Read K&B and practice
2. Take mock (scored 50%)
3. Read K&B and practice
4. Take mock (scored 72%)
5. Practise and read this forum!
6. Whizlab (72%,72%, 85%, 80%, 82%)
7. Practise

Every time I made mock, if i had question i did not understand I flipped it over to IDE and tested. This method worked for me!

Actual exam was much easier than Whizlab or K&B. So don't you worry, just practice and you will get passing grades
