Hi ranchers,
I passed the test last Saturday.
I arrived to test location 15 min in advance (as was adviced). But I had to wait over 1 hour, because there was no available cubicle for me, then my ID didn't work. They had to call Sun to get the correct one. So I came to the test a little frustrated And as a result I scored way too low than I expected. As a matter of fact, I failed topics that I usually passed with the flying colors
What I ment to say, don't rely on your best performance. You ought to be able to score in 80s on Green's mock to be sure to pass no matter what.
S. Roberts/P. Heller book is very good to start with. I am not a programmer but homemade amateur, and this book was my first one after Java in 24 hours (which actually took me 5 weeks ). Then I followed Khalid's book which opened my eyes wider . And finally, B. Brogden's Exam Cram just 2 days before the test. I find JTips mocks very useful, although harder than real exam. I would like to thank all the autors above for their great job . Thank you! And the very best of luck to all you who is getting ready for the test.
