Here's how I prepared for the exam:

1. Read K&B book twice.

2. Gave chapter wise tests:from this site

3. Noted down all my wrong answered questions in above step.

4. Clarified all my doubts by writing small programs in eclipse (it compiles as you type and marks the line which is not compiling). Tried out all permutation/combinations of statements I could think off (got obsessed with compiler's reaction to unreachable code )

5. Look at source code of Object, Integer, Float(Special attention to treatment of NaN, infinities, equals and compareTo methods), and Math classes

6. Stepped through(debug mode) in my own written multithreaded programs to get a feel of java multithreading behavior.

7. Read up on assertions from sun's site

8. Collections/String/StringBuffer from javadocs

9. Fully devoted 1 week to giving mock exams listed on this
page revisiting the above steps as needed

10. Became satisfied when scores started reaching 100% in some mocks.

11. Shaved and gave the exam

Tip: No need to cram stuff. To my relief, Exam certainly does not test cramming capabilities. Just try to know the language better.

Hope this was helpful.

Regards,
Amit

Thanks Karu,

I gave most of the mocks on javaranchs mock exam list
page (gave almost all the exams commented as hard). rules round up game is great.

My impression is, that the real exam isn't as hard as the mocks,

Probably marcus exams are the closest to real thing.( even they are a level up from the real exam)

Again, to me the exam seemed fine, really only pure basic, essential java is tested. Knowing the basics of java is enough to get a good score
