Just back from the exam. Passed with 93%. (57/61)

A big thank you to Kathy, Bert, Dan, Marcus, Khalid and Rolf for their books and mock exams and of course this website. The exam is not as difficult as it seems. The only tricky questions I got were on Threads. And they all came together.

My preparation was nothing special since I work fulltime. My mock exam scores were as follows:
Marcus 1 - 78%
Khalid Mughal - 82%
Dan Chisholm - Around 70-75 % on his section tests. I gave only one test from each chapter.
Rules Roundup - 83%
K&B - Gave exam twice - first attempt - 60%. second attempt - 94%.
John Hunt's exam - 83%

I may be wrong but I think some questions were near replicas to those in the K&B book.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
