What a day. Daycare called and said my daughter was sick as I was on the way out the door to take the test. Got that covered, then got to the exam place, and I had written down the wrong time for the test. Should have called yesterday! Luckily I was off by an hour early, but my husband was really worried when I was late calling him with results!
I've been incredibly worried that I would be laid off (merger madness meetings) when I got back to work today, but here I am, and there's no answer to that yet.
Now all I have to do is find an anniversary present for my husband before five o clock tonight, while keeping up a semblance of work!
I will sleep well tonight!
About the test- There was a 2^2, and I couldn't remember if that was how java did exponentiation or not. Guess it meant exclusive or.
JQPlus was a big help, but be careful - Don't try to install it at the last minute. I tried to install the jdk and jqplus at home yesterday, got tangled up in %path%, panicked, and had some extremely hormonal moments, and got sent to bed early. Good thing MS DOS is not on the test!
Many thanks to all of you in this community, because there really wasn't anything unexpected on the test. To those who follow, I have only this to add - don't underestimate the effort involved. Train yourself to answer the questions for two hours at a time, because otherwise you may get tired and make mistakes.

Congrats Annie!
I whole heartedly agree with you when you say '...do not under estimate the effort it takes to write for 2 hours'. One should go in expecting the hardest questions. JQ+ really made it feel like the real thing, other than you have an exhibit button for longer snippets of code. Wish you well in the merger mill
Percy

Stephanie has pollen bothering her eye. She's uncomfortable, but there's no damage. She's been teary and whiny for three days now! Thanks for asking,
Annie
