Just passed this morning. I answered one question wrong on Thread.
Thank you so much for all your help. People here are so nice and helpful. I cannot state this enough.
Some follow-up about the test:
1) I have got about 9 questions about thread and 8 about io at the beginning of the test. Make me panic. But they are not that difficult when I return to them after I finished other questions. Be calm.
2) check compiler errors first. I got many questions that have compiler errors.
3) read all options. Very often when I read the code, I thought I know what is happening. But after I read all options, I got new ideas.
4) Questions in the real exam are much simpler than those in mock exams. I normally got about 76% on mock exams. (I did not do review on mock exam.)
5) I have 3 years Java experience, read JIS and Simon Roberts book (very good book).
Good luck !
Quan

Sorry, Should be JLS, Java Language specification.
I have done lots of programming on io and thread, but still I feel those topics are my weakness. The only suggestion I can give is that before you go to the test, read APIs carefully. Then think really hard during the exam. I actually find myself try to understand those topics during the exam while I am reading the questions and thinking what the API says.
Good Luck.

Congratulations Quan!
I read somewhere that only 5% of all taking this exam scores higher than 90%, do not know about 98%.. probably 1% or less
