hi,
six of us took the the exam last Friday and we all passed the exam!
I passed it with 92%!
just like to thank javaranch and all the people here who patiently answered my doubts.
The qustions have some very easy questions and some difficult ones.
I wouldn't have made it with a high score without this site. I visit this site daily for almost two months. The people who posted that they passed the exam helped me gain my confidence.
I got 4-5 questions on IO and 5-6 on fill in the blank questions. The questions are very clear.
I used RHE and Exam Cram.I read Jyothi Krishnan and Marcus tutorials. they are very good. I also read JLS and Thinking in Java when I have some doubts. I also took all the available mock exams. I failed the applied reasoning and khalid exam only 68%.
Thank you again to all who participated in this site.
God bless to those who are going to take the exam.

regds,
joy

thanks satya,maha,ajith,eric and suresh.
Two weeks before the exam I searched javaranch for all the threads who passed the exam and I wrote all their advices. It helped me find great sites for tutorials, notes, good links to mock exams,which mock exams are close to the real one and which objectives I have to focus on. The books RHE and Exam Cram provided me the concepts and the mock exams helped me apply these concepts. I read RHE twice and on the second pass I understand the concepts better. I have programming experience in Java for more than a year but when I tried to take the mock exams without reading books I failed it. That's when I found out that I really dont know the basics of Java and for you to pass you have to know the language Fundamentals. So for those who are going to take the exam you still have to study hard even if you are already an experienced programmer. It took me two months to study.3 weeks of serious study for me to feel confident on taking the exam. Most of all read Sun's objective every once in a while to see if you have covered all for exam. I got many questions on I/O so you also have to study these things.
Thats all God bless!
thanks,
joy
