Hi friends!
I passed the exam yesterday with 84%. I am indeed very happy for the result. And a real surprise to me was that i did not get even a single fill in the blank type question!! All the questions i got were only multiple choice. May be i was lucky!!
Well the exam isn't very tough. As everyone is posting it is not difficult to pass and if you are through with the basics you will definitely pass.
The resources i have used are:
1. R&H
2. Complete Reference - Patrick Naughton (For only I/O and Threads).
3. Velmurugan's notes
I found his notes to be extremely useful. He has topicwise notes.
4. JLS , API
5. Maha Anna's home page.

I prepared for exactly 3 months. Did a lot of mock exams from Maha Anna's home page.
I would like to thank Maha Anna for her excellent work! and all the people at this ranch for their valuable posts. Thanks to Ajith, Bill ,Paul....i couldn't have done it without this site. Also i couldn't have done it without the help of my Husband who helped me in clearing all my doubts and concepts!

The test was little close to the MarcusGreen test 1&2. But some questions were little harder also. The GUI was very good and the time was ample. A lot of questions came from the earlier chapters. There was only 1 on GC. Threads did appear only after 35 or so. I got 6-7 on them. Util was very easy and basic questions came from them.
If anyone wants to know more about the exam or the type of questions i will surely help them.
Good luck!! for all the future aspirants

Hello Vijay and Mahesh,
Thank you for your wishes.
Vijay i have actually done almost all the mocks lists in maha anna's page. I did all of them except -JDcert,Jargon,Java Exam Applet123,deepak's and Brain Bench. So all the others a fine and i used to learn something new from everother mock exam. Marcus Green was little close and easier than the real one.
Regarding threads....i did a lot of reading. i always used to make mistakes on thread questions and so i read and re-read the theory many times to make sure that my understanding is correct. http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/expjava/excerpt/index.html#EXJ-CH-6-SECT-1 . This is a good site and also the sun tutorial was very good. u can also have a look at this thread where i too asked about threads. http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum24/HTML/006933.html
Mahesh regarding I/O i suggest that u first draw a heirarchical diagram of all the streams and readers. Go to the API and from there you draw a diagram and also read about them from the API. Revise them regularly, this is very important!! This is what i did and then found I/O to be the easiest. Also read velmurugan's notes. He has covered well in threads and I/O too.
Hope this helps you both
All the best
rajani
