Yay, free at last, words cannot expressed how happy I am at the moment.

I had been preparing for the exam since September. This week, I actually took a week off from work to give myself plenty of time to do and understand the mock exams available.

Practice Final Exam from the book are a bit more difficult than the actual exam. I scored around mid and high 60s on those two. I was actually surprised by the number of questions on Date, Locale, Dateformat. I think I came across at least 3 and it requires knowledge on the methods available to those classes. Not knowing too many methods available to the Locale class, I guessed the answers.

Anyway, many thanks to the members on this forum for their generious support and assistance. I think I deserve a break from Java before enrolling a Java course.

Actually I have a question on how to obtain the certificate afterwards. I received the Sun Examination Score report following the exam. Will the certificate be mailed to me, or do I have to register somehow?

Congrats David! The certification will be mailed to you after you log into cert manager (the URL is given on your score sheet), and confirm your mailing address.
