registered the exam at June/2/2011,
passed at Aug/8/2011 with 88%.

read through the whole K&B book, (20 days before the exam.)

practice exams: the 2 with the K&B book, OCP.Java.SE.6.Programmer.Practice.Exams's exam 1,

3 hour real-mockings: (this is done in the week before the exam.)
practice exam 2: 25 out of 60
practice exam 3: 33 out of 60
practice exam 4: 29 out of 60.

created a notebook of errors I made.

Friendly Advice: don't get scared of your scores, if you are doing the OCP.Java.SE.6.Programmer.Practice.Exams.

on the exam:
it's 150 mins not 180(3 hours) which kinda surprised me a little at first.
after all the practice and summarize. the real exam question looked pretty simple to me.

hope this experience will help.

Many Thanks to this awesome forum with so many nice people.

I work during the day, my study time was every 7 Am - 9:40AM, and then 7PM - 12, so its like 7-8 hours per day.

Thats quite an achievement.
 
Why does your bag say "bombs"? The reason I ask is that my bag says "tiny ads" and it has stuff like this:
