Howdy y'all. I found this great site on Saturday and wish I had seen it earier.
The test itself wasn't bad. Some hard questions, some easy. Glad I spent time studying IO (I got 100%) and threads (83%).
I scored 70% on Marcus Green's first exam and was scoring ~75% on jQ+. I got an 81% today.
What should I do next? I have degrees in Math(B.A. & M.A.) but no experience. J2ME? J2EE? C++. M.A. in C.S? SCJD? Thanks for eveyr

IMHO,
The way I always answer the question of what to do next is what does my employer need. Remember if your current employer has this need, chances are more empoyers have the same need. Oh, BTW CONGRATULATIONS!!! Also creating your own web page and then displaying sample programs is a good exercise that leads to a further understanding of the language. Thinking of yourself as an architect and carpenter and adding more tools to your toolbelts can also help clarify where you want to go.
Hope this helps some.

Congratulations Derrick
I second Michael's advice. If you're employer's involved in e-business you might want to check out XML/SOAP and how to utilize them with Java.
