Hello everyone,
At last, I got the courage to take the exam and passed it with 89%.
Thanks to all of you for you help in answering my questions. Thanks to JQ+! I had signed up for the exam for April 27th. I heard about JQ+ on the 24th in this forum. I rescheduled my exam for the 3rd(yesterday) and got JQ+ and went thru the pracrice tests. It helped a lot. I found that many questions on the exam were similar to the ones in JQ+.
Good luck to everyone who plans to take the exam!
Parimala.

Great score!!!
may i know in what areas of threads they are questioning
do they give long code with synchronised methods and ask for the output.

I think you are ready.
When I took the JQ+ tests I was getting about 70% to 75%. In the random test I scored 80%.
Goog Luck!
Parimala.

Thanks, Kish!
Thanks, Smartboy!
I scored only 71% in Threads. I am not surprised!
Yes, there were a couple of long code exhibits with synchronised code. The questions were quite balanced covering all areas equally. I think one needs to pay a lot of attention to threads, I/O, AWT. I found quite a few questions in overloading and overriding, with many questions having code that will fail to compile.
Good Luck!
Parimala.
