Passed SCJP 6 with 66%

I took the SCJP 6 yesterday and barely made it... I was under time pressure because I took it for a university class, or else I would have loved to take a few more weeks and get my goal of 90%.

Unfortunately I bombed the section on threads - I think I studied the section ineffectively. Most of the questions were on thread behavior, and I worked hard on wait/notify/notifyAll and some other topics that I had no questions about.

But oh well, pass == pass. Or pass.equals(pass), depending... ;) The road goes ever on and on. I'll finish my Bachelor's degree this spring, then I'm planning to take the SCJD.

How many questions were on the test, what is a passing score and is the test all multiple choice? I ask because on Sun's site it says 60 questions and 58.33% is passing. I think I seen somewhere on this site thought that the passing score is 65% and there are 75 questions.
