I ran through all of the questions once in about 45 minutes, then took another 20 to review about 10-15 of them that I marked to return to.

I sort of did this exam for fun. I have about 2.5 years experience as a Java developer; mostly J2SE, although some time has been with J2EE, but it's been long enough that I had to brush up on some of those topics. I have, however, somewhat recently taken graduate courses in J2EE.

I studied for about 2 1/2 weeks, mostly reading through Cameron's Study Guide. I also used my SCJP exam book (Sierra Bates) to get a more comprehensive review of the programming portions of the exam. I took the practice exam at the end of Cameron's book, and bought the WhizLabs exams. I scored lower on all of the practice exams (lower on the WhizLabs than Cameron's), but, to be fair to myself, didn't take nearly enough time on any of them - I was more interested in seeing the question types.

WhizLabs' package also contained an 8 page Review Guide that I found had a lot of very relevant material
