......Maha Anna, Velmurugan, Roseanne Zhang,Cindy Glass, Jane Griscti(I found your study notes quite useful!) and all the other people who take the time to answer questions on this forum, sometimes answering the same question, posted by different people, more than once in the same day!! I have to say most of you are very patient!
I scored 96% on the test(can't believe I didn't get 100% ), and in the end I thought I knew a lot more than was required for the test!! It feels so good to be able to say that But the exam was very simple and I was probably lucky.
There has been some confusion whether strings should be put in quotes in the type-in answers. I had one of those questions and initially I didn't put quotes. But as I went on with the test I noticed that some of the options for string type questions were like....... the value of the string is "xxxx"......so I went back and added the quotes......and I got that question right.
For those of you who are preparing for the test, I can't tell you anything new. You know what to do.....write a lot of code, refer to JLS and API documentation. I tried to read JLS while I was going through the certification books(KM and Exam Cram) for the first time and I would get a headache after reading just two lines! But I went back to it after I had gone through the two books and written a lot of code ....and then things started to make sense! There is a LOT in JLS that you will not find in the books. You will probably not need all that information for the exam but it just feels good to know all that stuff
For the packages, don't rely on just the books. Go through the API documentation. I probably didn't get a single question on packages that I could not have answered just from the information in the books....but I was probably lucky.
The $20 for JQ+ was a good investement!
There were some tricky questions on threads. Most questions had 15 to 20 lines of code.
Thank you all once again.
I am going to enjoy myself for the next few hours....till I am forced to watch The Mummy Returns

Vagisha,
what does JLS stand for and where can I get it.
I have Mughal (which I have read twice), Exam Cram and JQ+.
Thanks,
George
