Well, my score may not be super braggable, but I did pass the exam last week and I feel good about it. I was surprised by the difficultly. You here a lot of people say it's hard, but man are they're right.
My advice to future testers would be prepare until you think your ready, then prepare some more. Do yourself a favor and read at least one good Thread book and one good I/O book.
As you can probably see, this is my first post here. Actually, I've been lurking for some time now and thought I better speak up, since this was one of my best sources of information while preparing. These forums sure do answer a lot of great questions. I plan to give back a little now, and help out where I can. Thanks to you all.
Future plans? "I'm going to Disney World!" Actually, I would like to sit for the developer's exam somday. Oh no, back to the books I go! I should get a good shrink. I think my wife is really starting to worry about what I call "curling up with a good book"...
I do have a question. Would any of you be willing to share what you consider to be the best resources for Java Certifieds on the web? I'm pretty new to all of this, obviously. I do some web design and would like to expand my business to include Java applications/applets. Anyone had any success nailing down Java contract work over the web, that wouldn't mind sharing a pointer or two? Well, again, thanks for everything!

hi james,
congrats.
what do mean by "man are they're right". exam is tough , easy or average.
i might sound a bit slow , but please reply.
instead of reading books on threads & i/o , java documentation will do.

thanks
