Hi guys, Took the exam this morning and passed the exam with 88%. I want to give thanx to the God Almighty for giving me the wisdom and knowledge, hats off to the HFS authors- You guys totally rock !!!, and to all the javaranch members for their valuable ques and feedbacks.
Hm.. I failed for the HF mock exam .. 59%
Regarding the exam,
The ques are more or less straight forward, yet a bit tricky. The first 30 ques were very easy which gave me a relaxed attitude, then came the trickier ones. Got 10 drag and drop. Pay more attention to JSTL, custom tags EL and design patterns.
My Prep strayegy :-
Read HF book 2 times, took my own notes while reading and while taking mock exams. The notes that u make can be used for last minute reference. Did mock exams in jdiscuss.com and in j2eecertificate.com. well.. that's all. Hm.. also a good night sleep . Try to schedule the exam in the morning, u will feel more relaxed.
Now I can go for my Xmas holidays.. , and can start my SCEA prep early next year.
ALL THE BEST FOR EVERYONE WHO'S PREPARING FOR THEIR EXAMS ...
(send me your email-ids if you guys want some of the tips that I made) [ December 15, 2004: Message edited by: Giju George ]
