Passed OCAJP7 with 96%

I just took the exam this morning and passed with 96% !!!

The Kaplan practice test I purchased did come in handy. The real thing was pretty close to it, including look and feel of the app used for the real exam.

One thing that threw me for a loop was a question that had two tabs to it.
One tab for the question and one for the necessary background on the classes used for the question.
On my first go at this question I did not notice the background tab, so I did not know why I was being asked a question of the sort

"The user clicks on the display button. What happens?", when I had no idea what sort of handling might have been written for the button's onclick event.

On my second go, I noticed the blue tab, clicked on it and then all was clear.

Congratulations!!
How did you find the test in terms of toughness? Did you feel the questions required you to work really hard to get to the answer?

As I recall about a third of the questions were of the variety:

"This access modifier on a class member does what?"

I could answer those in a few seconds, as I either knew the answer or I didn't. There were a couple I felt uncomfortable about.
Sometimes, I had to make the 'best' choice not the choice I would have liked. For example, on a badly encapsulated class, I would
have liked to have changed the access of a field from default to private, but that was not one of the options.

Two thirds were of the variety. "Here is some awful code with bad indentation. What does it do?"

There were about four of those that really made me work, including one that had a while loop cleverly inserted inside a for loop
that caused an infinite loop (while(some condition);) and one that wouldn't compile because the compiler would try and insert
a call to super() and super did not have a no arg constructor.

If I just passed with 96% and I was asked that question, I would say it was extremely tough. Probably the toughest challenge I have ever faced Puts more feathers in my cap
