Hi everyone,
Thanks to Marcus,JavaRanch, Applied Reasoning, JavaCaps, JTips and JavaPrepare.
Passed yesterday with 89%. It shows I cleared 53 of the 59 questions. Now that comes out to be 59.8%. Shouldnt it be rounded ? ;-)
90 is sooooo different from 89.

It appears that they truncate. 56 out of 59 is 94.91%, but Sun calls it 94. The thing I don't understand is why the exam is 59 questions. What a strange, uneven number.

Since I already made a typo last time, I will keep this short.
THANKS EVERYBODY.
