I did it !!! I do not have a lot of java experience. For the last four months I studied the "A programmers guide to java certification" book and did a lot of mock exams like Marcus Green etc... and I read the Velmurugan study notes wich are very well written by the way. I also did all the jqplus exams and had an average of about 75%. I think it is worth the $18.00. A big Thanks to this site for the help and motivation !
