Thanks to all the people who spent a lot of time and effort putting useful information regarding certification process.
Thank you all.
Exam was not super-tough or super-easy. It was intermediate. It was good. Some questions were straight. Lot of them wanted you to think thru the concepts well. Some were real tricky and needed you go thru the steps in a working sheet. All of them needed careful study of the question and the code exhibit.
I had one type in answer question (regarding String functions)
5 or 6 q's in java.io. Most of them related to File Streams.
3,4 in java.util. Most of them straight questions. 3,4 in awt.
5 or so in threads. Some of them trickier. I missed one question in threads. Another one I missed was in operators & assignments section. Those questions also were tricky. for loops and lot of operators involved. I don't know which one I missed.
I studied KAM/Rasmussen(great), RHE(very nice), BB's Exam Cram. Went thru Sun's, Marcus green's, Jyothi's tutorials and JLS. Referred Dylan Walsh's study notes. Wrote lot of small programs. Did lot of Mock exams.(JQPlus,Marcus Green, Jaworski, Jxam, Jargon and Applied Reasoning are the ones I liked) Maha Anna's page pointed to lot of mock exams.
After all the efforts, I'm very happy now seeing the result.
Again, Thanks for the modertors of JavaRanch to have such a nice forum. (Your round-up game is really good).
Best wishes to all of you in all your efforts.
