Hi Everybody,
Hi made it and passed my certification with 90% . I'm really excited considering and don't have Java working experience. I do have a lot of Powerbuilder experience that help me for understanding the object oriented part of Java.
Special thanks to everybody involved in JavaRanch it's a great site and without it i probably wouldn't have that hi score.
The exam was of medium difficulty. Didn't have the famous mediatracker and socket questions ( but we know we don't have to worry about them )
Spent a lot more time then i needed to on I/O and collections. Just stick to the objectives and it will be enough.
With every objectives of the exam write little sample java code it will make it clear.
At the end of the exam look for words like static, final, private
I did see some mistakes in the exam, like one question was missing a double quote in one of the arguments.

What i used and would recommend is:
3 mock exam of Marcus Green
Jyotis notes ( Hope i didn't misspell the name )
Like a lot of people on this site say: Stick to the objectives and fundamentals.
Now i'm going for the Java Architect certification.
Good luck to everybody.....
