The exam was not very tough ...may be i felt b'coz i've given the other cert's. My overall view, which I have commented in my exam also, is--- "If the Basic Java is removed from the objectives and put SCJP as the prerequiste this exam should be fine" This is a good exam to get prepared to all the java technologies involved.
Thanks for all of you who have given enough info about the exam to prepare well. Now, waiting eagerly for the results... Thanks again.
Honestly I thought it was simple compared to the SCJP 5.0 exam. Very factual questions with little or no ambiguity. The appearence of ambiguity is a good way to test somebody's skill: a, b, c and d all have a grain of truth but the only genuinely correct answer is b, for example. Not too much of that in SCEA part I.
