I passed the exam last week. I found the Roberts book and the Exam Cram to be very helpful. I found the sample examples in both these texts to be accurate gauges of how well I did on the exam.
My tips and observations:
1. Its as much about reading comprehension than anything else. Get rest. Especially if you are over 30 with kids like myself :->.
2. Despite teaching Java three times in the last three years and coding OO languages for 5+ years, concentrated study is still required in order to pass.
3. Form a study group to banter around the topics.
