I DID IT.
Got 53 out of 59 right.that's 89.8%.They truncate it.
I round it to 90%.(Math.round(89.8))
First of all thanx to all at Javaranch.com.
especially Ajith Khallambela,Jane Griscti,Marcus Green,Amitabh,Shailesh.
I have to say this is the best site for certification discussion and I've learnt a lot from here.
The exam had 7-8 thread,5-6 IO,3 awt,2 util. Questions
I got 100% in Threads ,IO
and also in Overriding,flow control& exc.
Io is pretty straightforward.Thread questions are difficult and take up a lot of time due to long codes,but it can be cracked if you are clear on synchronization and monitors.
I lost marks in fundamentals,awt(suprisingly),Collections.
I never could remember all the interfaces in Collections
I feel RHE plus a lot of mocks is enuf to pass.
I used RHE and did IO,Threads,Inner classes,Collections from Khalid's book.
Khalid's book is really good ,but I just didn't have time to study the whole book as I only had 3 weeks leave to study.
JQPlus is a definite advantage.
I have 2 say there r about 4-5 questns. almost same to same in the exam.
Next target : either Sun Developer or JDeveloper.
Could anyone give me advice on this?
I'll be hanging around and trying to pay back ,in whatever way I can, the help that had been lent to me.
