I'm so glad and happy about my exam which I've cleared with 88 %.
Thanks to K&B and many thanks to this forum - you're great and very helpful - I've taken a lot of hints and advantages from this forum, and I highly appreciate the fact that many persons among you dedicate plenty of spare time in order to help others! Thanxx again!
I've crammed for this exam in Gran Canaria - initially, it was likely to travel to Madrid or Barcelona in order to take the final exam.
But on short notice, I had to present myself in Zurich due to an IT project as a freelancer, so I had to stop my exam preparations. After having passed the technical interview, I travelled to Germany in order to see my friends, because I had to wait about a week for the result - which finally was positive: on next Tuesday, I'll start my project work in Zurich.
Arrived in Germany, I had to "reactivate" all Java stuff - fortunately, I've brought with me a plenty (=500) of so-called memory cards, so I could go through during a couple of days, especially things like "classpath" and "inner classes" issues, which in fact belonged to my weak points.
Today, when I arrived in the test center, I saw that I had a room of my own, in addition, they served me coffee and mineral water for free.
Due to the fact that I could hardly sleep last night (also because of the heat - yes, it can be warm in Germany...), I felt nervous and exhausted - consequently, I supposed that I wouldn't be able to reach a score beyond 70%. When the system admin gave me the report (there was no result indicated on my screen after submitting ... really strange!) I could hardly believe my eyes discovering the "passed with 88 %".
Sure I've toughened up my Java skills using Enthuware and ExamLab.
Here my scores which I achieved with Examlab:
Diagnostic Exam: 56 %
Exam 1: 41 %
Exam 2: 54 %
Exam 3: 51%
Final Exam: 72 %
The range of my scores with Enthuware has been between 57% and 83%.
Now, I'm so glad and relieved ... I can hardly explain!
