I decided to take this exam on my way to SCJP, which I plan to take in a couple of weeks. I read Cameron McKenzie's SCJA Certification Guide, and ran through his Mock Exam Questions book. I also read several Wikipedia articles on different pieces of J2EE and J2ME. I studied four days, mainly Saturday and Sunday.

The Prometric place was most unimpressive. The testing station was located in a company's back storage room. The printout I was given was unreadable because the printer needed a new toner cartridge. I have no idea what the two-page printout says, although the score is readable. I hope there isn't anything important on the printout.

I guess I will get something in the mail from Sun?

Congratulations on your killer score! That's awesome.

I'm really glad that my books could play a small role in your success. Just hearing that made my day!

Don't get me started on Prometric. If that's the worst they threw at you, be grateful.
