Hi all, I finally passed with 72%,not a great score i know.I had only one question with 28 lines and all others were just of 8 to 10 lines.Exam was quite easy,but u need be expert in fundas.So all of u who are preparing for the exam just have a great fundation of basics.Questions on java.lang was quite tough and threads was not so tough.IO was also easy ,flow control and remaining sections was also easy.But i scored less in awt,GC,java.lang and java.util. I would like to thank all of them here in javaranch and they are doing a wounderful job here.If anybody needs any help they are most welcome and i will have a look at this page daily atleast for one week. vasanthi
A passing score is a great score! I was just wondering if you had taken any Mocks prior to the exam, and if so how do you think they stacked up against the real thing? I've been taking Marcus Green's mocks and I've been scoring very well on them, but I still don't feel completely confident yet, but then again I probably won't until I can recite the JLS.

hi sean casey, Yes i had taken many of the mock exams,it surely helps u a lot,the real exam is quite similar to the mock exams u take,these mock exams actually helps u a lot,it is better u take as many mock exams as possible.It is better u first gain the confidence and later u write the exam,but don't worry the real exam won't be so tought as some of the mock exams are.I wish u very best of luck for the exam. vasanthi
Hello arifat On IO i had got roughly about 5 to 6 questions including files.They are very easy unless u know the constructors very well,i mean constructors of streams,readers,writers and random access files.No need to worry about that,indeed i had got 100% in it.For IO KAM book is more than enough.I wish u very best of luck for the exam and about the mock exams i can't tell u in particular,u just go through some of them. vasanthi
