- A surprisingly difficult exam.

-It took me all but 30 minutes to finish, far longer than it took on any practice exam. (Of course, I was being more careful.) This underscores the importance of having a plan so that time does not get away from you. Mine was to leave all drag and drop questions to the end, on the theory that revisiting these, should I come across some clue to their answer elsewhere, would be time-consuming owing to the need to re-place everything.

-Keep links to the JSTL, JSP and servlet specs on your desktop and read them carefully and often.

-I read HF -- a really indispensable book -- three times and made many many index cards, and reviewed them all several times.

-I used Enthuware. Good stuff, strongly recommended. Do the practice exams and review all the answers, not just the ones you got wrong, as the explanations will give you insights you might not pick up on otherwise.

-For some reason I often found it difficult to understand the setup instructions ("You have an application that blah blah blah") for each question. By contrast, the Enthuware setup text was always quick & easy to understand apart from the occaisional misspelling. Perhaps my brain was just tired.

-You must understand the structure and syntax of the DD thoroughly.
