Well the time has come for me to take the dive. A lot of months of study and I don't completely feel ready, however, I have to go for it.

Good luck and let us know how you do. I'm a A/400 RPG programmer also making the transition to Java.

Hi guys, I also come from the same background as you with about 4 years experience in AS400 RPG400, ILE, CL. After about 4 1/2 preparation and study, I passed the Exam on the 13th june 2001 with 69%at the first attempt. You too can do it. I know as400 language style is much different from C++/Java but that will not matter much after hard study. Go for it and you will all make it.
Let us know the outcome.
Regards,
Emmanuel Bakare.

Hello, George and thanks for asking. I didn't take the test. Reason being is I took the JQPlus Random test before the 4:00 o'clock cut-off and I did so poorly that I felt why waste my money and get myself all disappointed. I really didn't feel ready and I found areas that were I was really weak in. So, I've decided to wait for at least another month and work a lot of JQPlus mocks maybe others and drill down on some of my problem areas. It would be great to add the cert to my resume, however, I would feel better If I could say that I really know Java.
Why rush it!
Thanks,
Donald

For some of the curious, I decided to put the test off at the last minute. Reason being is I had enough time to take the random test offered by JQPlus before the cut-off time and I did poorly. I don't know if it was last minute jitters or what, however, I decided to postpone taking the exam until I scored at least an 80% on the Random test or until I really felt confident that I at least have a reasonable chance to pass. I guess there is no reason to rush it.
Thanks,
Donald
