Finally after reading HFSJ twice, solving many many questions, preparing a summary, memorizing tags... I did it!
I don't have work experience about the topic but I made sure that I understand the stuff out there, burn the needed stuff in my head and try all weird stuff that came to my mind.

Thanks all for your help and for this wonderful forum and good luck for all.

Mock exams helped alot, any mock exam will help even the old ones (1.4) just make sure that the answer will not conflict with the new spec's. So you need to have a very well knowledge when it comes to spec's with no doupt.
I got a comercial mock exam from JWebPlus with 8 tests. they were good actully answers were explained and they gave me better understanding.
Basically the more you read the better!

Now the exam itself contained as you 69 questions. As an advice get yourself trained well on doing 69 questions without breaks becuase at some point of time during the exam you will be like "damn it I just want it to finish". So if you are not trained well to sit for about 2 hours doing such an exam you will have that feeling and it hurts, in my case for instance i didn't even review the questions, I answered them then i left because I just wanted to finish.

another thing, the questions are kind of trickie, they are not very diffecult but they try to explain the senario in 3-4 lines (sometimes not always) trying to lose you, and so that you think of something while the answer is something else.
I can't blame them for doing this, especially that they try to test our understanding of the topics, so when you see such a question easy just FOCUS.

good luck all.

Thanks all.
gopal: I had 8 exams, I field one, got 96 in another and the rest was in the range of 70's except for 2 in 80's.
So I got all possible grades

An advice: when you get a question wrong understand why it is wrong, write it down and study the final list.
I agree. Here's the link:
