Hi All, I have just returned from the testing center bagged with a score of 85. I have to pay my humble words of gratitude to the all those ranchers who have helped me to reach this score. To mention a few, Rizwan and Darya. Thanks a lot, friends!

Thanks one and all for your wishes... Priya, Head first is your bible. Read through the book n number of times. The moment you are through with it, go through the spec.(Especially for JSP). Once you do that, you are through with the preparation.
Now, for mock exams and questions, choose atleast 5 mocks before the exam. Once you are through with the mock, take up the mock of Head first. This will actually give you the finishing touch.
My suggestion in the real exam is, split the entire stuff(69 questions) into 25 questions each and try solving the each by batches. In this case, you will not panic.(I am sure I have lost atleast 3 questions because of my panic)
I suppose the core Design patterns book from the sun is really a great asset for revising your J2ee Design pattern, apart from HFSJ.(I never thought I would get 100% in J2ee design pattern )
Have a good picture of web.xml. This would enable you to answer most of the questions in the exam.
Over that, a bit of luck and a bit of omnipresent's grace!!
Congratulations Srinivas. Great score. Though I have gone thru completely HFSJ book, I am yet to write the exam because of some commitments. I am planning to write the exam somewhere end of this month. Whats your next plans?
