Thank you Kathy and Bert for your great book! Without the focus the book brings to the task of studying for the certification, it would have been impossible for me! The test was grueling, 3.5 hours!
Be prepared for a lot of threading questions. You must know Threading in your sleep forward and backwards. Also none of the free practice tests I used had drag and drop and there are a lot of these on the test. Some of these questions have like something like 7 drag and drop components.

Thank you everybody! Just squeaked by with a 69%
Which I figure is a 3 question margin. I did poorly in the threads section. There are like 10 questions in a row on that and as I mentioned before, I was not prepared for the Drag and drops.
One little piece of advice is to bring Gum even if you are not normally a Gum chewer.It keeps you awake for the 3.5 hours!

I'm thinking of doing the J2ME certification next but I don't know if this is going to be obsolete?

And thanks for your advices....I hope I get a lot of Threading questions as I am very good at it...If I get all Threading questions then I will get 100% but if I get more Generics Questions then I will get 0%

I would say the generic questions are not tricky. You just need to understand what is in the Sierra & Bates book.
As for the "drag and drops", I would recommend using some commercial test software that has drag and drops. I was very short on funds so I winged it. It's a little disconcerting to have these questions with 8 parts and you must get all 8 parts right to get any credit.

Like others have mentioned you can not go back and check the "drag and drops" without erasing the entire question. In fact, you don't even know the question you might erase (unless you have written it down)! That being said, when I had the extra 1/2 hour at the end, I just reviewed the questions without drag-drop.
