Hi all,
Finally I have got the opportunity to write this letter. Today (the day I have been waiting sine last four months) just one our before I have passed exam with 93% after the hard work of four months. I do owe big thanks to my wife and this great site.
First of all I would like to give big thanks to my wife for her full support, especially when she is pregnant and we are supposed to have a baby girl next month. She really did help me a lot and now I want to help her. Again I wants to say thanks to her.
Now I would like to say thanks to this great site Javaranch. This is like a great family, everyone here is helping other peoples. I have been using this site since last four months and whatever I could learn is just because of this site. I used this site as learning tool for me. I used to study all the threads like a book for me. I would like to say thanks herbert, jim, mah, ajith and lots of other peoples for their help. I really appreciate their efforts and time.
It was all over in just 55 minutes. I was sure I had done well, and my aim was somewhere around 90%. So I am too happy I was to the point. Anyway, my main conclusion is just like anybody else, RHE, Carm are the best books. I studied RHE two times, and Cram may be three or four times. Also, I also give a very big credit to Javaranch. You guys are doing excellent work.
The paper was quite easy. I think the level of the paper is the same as RHE/Cram/MarcusGreen and example given at sun site. I would like to give one suggestion that if you are going to start your preparation then buy jqplus mock exam. It is really good mock from the beginning of the study.
Thanks to everybody once again. I'll keep visiting this forum.
Please wish luck to my wife and me for having healthy baby.

Thanks to all of u.
Prakash the only thing in RHE is missimg is gridbag layout manager. so make sure that u have enough knowleadge of gridbag layout from some other source.
There are some good links for gridbag layout at maha's site. check it out. i would say go for Exam Cram also. it is wporth of buying.
good luck.
