Overall, please read the questions clearly and if there is no one in the room read it loud. (That�s what I did) Pay attention to: all, always, usually kind of words.Answer the question that they ask, not your interpretation of question.
Questions that I missed:
Custom Tag question: usage of a Custom Tag in such a way that I have never seen before. And I said to myself who, in a right mind, would do such a thing? I have spent 5 mins on it got mad, guessed and let it go.
Pattern questions were the trickiest ones, read the question at least two times, there can be an explanation, which usually fits into most of the options given, but there is usually a word in the question part of the question (not just in the explanation ) that gives the answer away. I missed the question for a given Pattern's strength comparison, now that was a very, very tough multiple choice.
In Servlet and Servlet Container Model, I really don't know what I missed because I was not expecting to miss any; I believe that I did not pay attention to some weird little tricky word.
Web.xml and *.tld file tag questions were very creative, I did not miss them.They used some strange wording: take a deep breath and say: excuse me in English please! Better translate them into English
Readings: I really was not studying for the exam during my previous readings.I really liked Manning's book Web Development with JSP. I also read Inside Servlets,Core Servlets and JSP, Advanced JSP (skipped few chapters), Enterprise Java Servlets and some more. Also recently I am _ technical_ reviewing a new book from Wrox which will be published very soon
Well you might say damn too many books , as I said, I read them before and then I said what the heck I should take the exam.
The exam: I took 3 weeks to get ready, used JWeb+ and JWhiz, read Vel's notes ( Outdated but great and my strategy was to update it line by line and that does the trick )
Read the Security related chapters from Oreilly's Servlet book. I refused to read Specs, they will stay on my desk as a REFERENCE to be read later, few pages a day.
This exam is NOT about the experience. The studies that you do for the exam will greatly help you. I enjoyed studying for it and this is where I want to be, I am going to get more involved with server side and JSP.At work I have a new project to spoil, unfortunately I am alone, missing a mentor.
What is next? Pile up more experience , pile up more experience and flirt with Oracle9i
Good luck to all I am off to see the wizard for a week.
( I will be back to keep torture you guys more )

Congrats Ersin. Thanks for everything the questions the web.xml diagrams, the mispellings, the Textpad file, and showing me that I can do that too.
Now this isn't another tease of yours is it? You are not going to say April Fools or anything like that.
