I took the Core Spring 3.0 exam this morning and passed with a 94% score.
I thank you for all the posts related to this exam and all the suggestions regarding learning materials.
I couldn't have done this without you.
I posted some details about it on my blog (it is in my signature) and if you have any questions related to it you think I might answer, feel free to ask.
