Thanks Kathy and Bert for a great book! Three weeks ago I didn't know the first thing about Java, and I thought certification might be a good way to force myself to learn. So right I was!
I think I agree with some posts here about Collections in the book. The only other comment about it I have is a quiet question how relevant the "pass level" on the book mock exams are? I scored 88% and 90% and that was actually higher than my actual exam result. Wonder if I was unlucky on the exam...
Thanks Dan Chisholm for solid and tough mock exams. I've always believed the best preparation is example questions that are at leats a level harder than the actual exams. I never managed to get past 23/31, though I did 9 of them!
Hakan,
Sweden and Australia!!

Hakan -
Three weeks? incredible!
Thanks for using the book, and FYI we're working to replace the simulator software, which we didn'thave any control over
