hi Guys,
So I finally made it after 3 months of JLS, and JavaRanch.
And NO mock tests !
That's right, the only test I took was the Beta exam (which was more than just a mock test) last week.
Guys, one word of advice for u ... Read the Java Language Specs - esp the chapter on Classes, Interfaces, Arrays and Expressions.
If u can't find it on the Net, I'll mail it to u personally.
For I/O - I referred to the API and stuck the objectives.
For AWT - Core Java gives a good explanation, RHE is good for event handling.
For Threads, refer to CoreJava Volume 2 - nothing beats it !
Be good to yourself - read the JLS
I wonder where I went wrong... I think its just not possible to score 100% even if u get all qts right. Its probably programmed that way.
After all, noone's perfect, and Sun very well believes in it !
My next goal - SCJD and an XML certification !
All the best to all of u out there.....
I'd love to be of help to anyone who plans to take the real exam after October as well.
From the beta exam, its pretty obvoius the new exam has the same level of difficulty. However, you are now provided with the number of correct choices to be selected in case of more than one correct answers.

I agree it wouldn't be fair to cheat, but who's gonna tell u how to deal with qts with s.append() ?
I wonder where I went wrong... I think its just not possible to score 100% even if u get all qts right. Its probably programmed that way.

Could you tell me who wrote "CoreJava Volume 2"?
Also, what is the XML CERTIFICATION?
Lots of luck for SCJD
