Just clear it today, scored 86%

Thanks to Devaka, Henry, Ankit and all that helped to make concepts clear and questions answered.

I didn't do well on generics, perhaps I didn't read the new version of K&B book. I relied on the version 5 and didn't paid much attention on the added NavigableSet stuff. I encounter 2 questions on adding, deleting elements after doing subSet and sort. Also a mistake on generic constructor. I choose Gen<T>() which I think should be just Gen().

One unexpected thing is for questions with a "Task" button and need drag and drop actions. I found I couldn't review the answer. When I click on the "Task" button in review mode, it pops up an message basically saying if you choose yes, you are going to redo the question. I still did not figure out how to review these questions.

One small surprise is there are 2 or 3 questions given the code without outer class signature. It had 2 classes parallel with the public static void main method. I had thought the main method was outside any class but after the 2nd occurrence I realized it was not.

60 question in 3 hours.

I did Devaka diagnose, 1, and final. They are really helpful. Just don't let the score depress you:-) I scored 62% on final(failed).

The real exam is harder than I thought.

Did you tried to disable UAC in VISTA? and also try to install the simulator with ADMINISTRATOR privilege.

What about the ADMINISTRATOR privilege?
I remember that I managed to install it without problems on a VISTA HOME PREMIUM 32 with SP1
