Hello guys.
My time to brag . I passed SCEA (got the email today).

I had followed the posts here on Javaranch for almost 3 years (since 2007 ).

Here is the timeline
October 2007 - SCEA 5 part 1 - Beta
May 2010 - paid for the assignment and started the work
July 23rd 2010 - submitted the assignment and took part 3

August 18th 2010 - just in time for holiday - got my certification results.

I followed the posts of Dmitri Ericsson and Chapter 9 from the SCEA book.
I had plenty of doubts , been smokin' copies of the assignment , and was thinking about issues even when biking to work or during weekend trips .
Total effort - 55-60 h.
Thank you for your help guys.
PS: A special thank you to the guys who failed and posted their experiences ( Tomasz and Anurag for instance) they were a big help.

Better, faster, lighter Java ... you mean Ruby right ?
SCEA5,SCBCD1.3,SCWCD5,SCJP1.4 - memories from my youth.
