Friends,
I was a jerk before and owe everyone an apology. I thought that below a 70% was not passing even though it was and posted before that the certification score should not pass anyone with less than 70% (old passing rates)
Well, I did it, passed with a 67%.. I feel like **** about it, I studyied hard I just didnt do enough coding and practice tests. I just read the RHE and exam prep book and some of exam cram.
I only took the RHE practice test the night before and did part of the practice test.. I read the chapter on File I/O the night before and the test asked like 4 or 5 questions on that . I know I understand garbage collection 100% but it said I got a 0% on it.. I am going to study some more and get a higher mark before I move on to the developer test.. GOOD NEWS!! The programmer test counts for some of the IBM Java developer track (JCert!!) so its all good.. WEll take care my friends and sorry to those I critized in the past..
Cheers,
Jacob

Congratulations Bobby
It was good of you to apologize; the exam is not an easy one and it takes some effort to get a 61%.

Bobby, I question whether there is any benefit to writing again once you pass. I would have been happy with a 61%. A pass is a PASS! Press on to the next rung on the ladder:-)

I wouldn't bother taking the test again. You passed and that is all that counts. Time to move on to something else.
