Hi All,
I've just passed the exam this morning with 81%. I am so happy that all my efforts for around 4 weeks didn't disappoint me.
I prepared my exam with:
JWhiz got average 78%
Marcus Green's average 80%
JPrepare average 71%
I also want to share some tips for anyone going to take the exam, I found, it's very true to focus on :
- I/O Constructors
- Inner Class (with all its modifiers)
- AWT's LayoutManager (Border, Flow and GridBag)
- synchronized word in Thread (many questions on this)
That doesn't mean that other topics are unimportant, I just found many questions on that area.
I also too under-estimated garbage collection (got 0%), only 1 question on garbage collection, but I missed it
I enjoy some long code with basic error like accessing non-static variable from static methods.
Last but certainly not least ... my big thanks to Valentin, Fei Ng, Manish, James and everyone I can't mention one by one in Javaranch, it's a wonderful site for java programmer to discuss java problems.
I think will move to SCWCD after this

Congrats Roy,

It's amazing how many ppl get score in the final exam which is so close to their score in Marcus Green's mocks.
Enjoy your success,

Thank you everyone, I would not get any luck without your wishes and supports.
I wish to learn from you guys at SCWCD forum, I think IT down turn is the best time to prepare ourself with new skills and certification, isn't it ?
All the best,
Roy T. Wiradinata
