Congrats mate....!!!

Can you tell me what was the difficulty level of the real exam v/s the K&B questions??

And can you also tell me how cramped the codes in question were?? Because in K&B questions codes look really messy(though the author claims that its for preparation purpose). I am a bit worried about the style of code in real exam. Because I find it a bit difficult to concentrate hard and find those NullPointerException,local var not initialized sort of errors(though my theoretical and practical knowledge of the subject is more or less good) but I find it bit difficult to concentrate hard on codes to trace these errors.

If you could reply, then that would help me a lot....

Thanks and Congrats once more

I suggest you to go with SCWCD as that is better aligned with the market requirements currently. SCJD is also good but may take more time.
