Around last Christmas, I knew nothing about Java. Today, I passed the exam with 81%.
I would like to provide the following tips:
1. Clear your doubts in this excellent Forum.
First of all, thank you for all guys who had answered my posted questions! Without you guys, I could not make it.
2. RHE book is definitely excellent. Though sometimes it is a little bit hard to understand. But this book is just like the syllabus, if you can understand 95% of the book, you will be able to hit 80% in the real exam. If you are new to Java, to be able to understand 95% of the book, just read it 4 or 5 times. No doubt, Mughal's book is good too. I read that book to clear a lot of my doubts from RHE book.
3. JQ+, worth to buy. You can use it in two ways: a) check out your level; b) get a flavor how those concepts in RHE book are reflected in the exam questions. But be sure you understand MOST concepts before you use JQ+, otherwise, it won't be very helpful.
4. The last week before the exam is very important, don't lose confidence if you did not do good in the mock exams. Here is how I spent my last week: a) doing JQ+, and my score respectively are: 63%, 56%, 66%, 66%, 71%, 56%(the day I went to take a look at the testing center), 73% and 83%(last night, after I spent the last 2 days to review the forth time of RHE book). b) doing other mock exams. c) Save my last two days to finally go over the RHE book thoroughly and carefully. I deemed this as a CRUCIAL step. I increased my score over 10% after I finished this round of reading.
BTW, the exam is clearly stated, straightforward and close to Jq+.
