Thanks you all guys and Java Ranch for the great support; for being there right from when I had problems running my ch1servlet, and for seeing me through the last chapter. I gave the exam today and got 88%. I read through just the HFSJ (3 times) and thanks to KS,BB & BB. Absolutely a perfect way of teaching and making the learning experience interesting (I even did the crossword when I decided to put a stop to the learning for the exam ;D). Looking forward to use the HFEJB for the BCD. (Okay, if I thank you anymore I'll sound as artificial as those name-reading oscar winners, mine IS sincere )

As regards comparing HF mock results with original results, the +20% rule applied to me too. I had got 68% in the HF final mock.

My tips to test takers, take it easy, but be wary of those intricate details in the spec. Spec is boring, but it does help in the exam, in addition to HFSJ. Stop reading whatever guide you are following and start giving the mock exams a couple of days before DDay and see where you are doing mistakes. You can learn a hell lot from mistakes. Good luck.

Congratulations Sue! I am taking the exam on the 13th and you have helped me personally by asking very intelligent and thought provoking questions on this board. I look forward to studying the SCBCD with you as I plan on going for that one next as well (provided that I pass on the 13th)!

BB & BB cloneable interface, lol

I think he is referring to Bert Bates and Bryan Basham (BB, BB), but it's funny in a geeky way.
