I found it hard. (Harder than the Architect test which I passed 2 years ago).
Very relieved to have passed - thanks for the help here at Java Ranch.
I found the questions way more involved than the mock exams I had taken in books and online (scoring in the 90% region).
Advice - be prepared for some brain work. Be patient and work through the question, the answers were not immediately obvious. Unlearn all your C++, if that is your background.
I'm pretty sure that I lost most of my marks for not knowing the detail of the libraries (java.io in particular) - including parameter level precision. The Thread questions I liked, I would recommend writing Thread code, learning it from a book may not be enough.
Cheers
Cas

Congratulations!!!
I am wondering, how much % I should get to pass this exam?
Some people told me it is 69%, and other told me it is 71%.
And some people passed it with 61%.
Can anyone tell me the answer?

Ronnie is right. It used to be 71% until October 4, 2000. Since then passing score are 61%.
