Dear John Lincoln,

Press on the "Launch using Java Web Start" and it will download a file called inquisition.jnlp for you, after that, all you have to do is to double click on it, so it will install the exam for you ...

Good luck ...

I've got 3 weeks to go too: I'm sitting the exam on March 30th (and getting somewhat nervous).

Definitely agree with the mocks suggestion- do as many as possible. It's one thing reading the theory...

I'd recommend the WhizLabs preparation kit.

I'd also say, go through the book again (and again). I think I've read the certification book through at least 5 times, and I'm now going through it taking notes.

Hi Damodar,

I recommend you work on your weak areas at this point of time. It is the best time to do practice through mock exams. You will be able to find out your strengths and weaknesses and then plan your preparation accordingly.

I highly recommend you writing code on areas you are finding difficulty in.

Best wishes,
Pradeep
