83% overall, 100% in gc, awt, flow control. 85% in threads.
I noticed a definate bias on my test towards threads. Probably 12 questions included threading. I also only had 5 questions on java.io, and maybe 5 on AWT. I got three wrong of my IO questions, and those seemed slanted towards memorization, although I should have known them. The test took me about an hour to complete, and I spent about 15 minutes reviewing it.
I studied 1 hour a day for 6 months, fiddled around with the Rules Roundup for most of that time, wrote a lot of small programs, developed a JSP/Servlet application at work, and started taking mock exams about two weeks ago. I read RHE and Exam Cram (Brogden), as well as using javadoc and "Java in a Nutshell" for reference (RHE is really weak on collections).
I scored 88, 80 and 84 on the Marcus Greene exams, so my average for those maps spot on with my actual test score.

I forgot. Thank you very much JavaRanch, you really helped in many, many ways. Also, thanks to Marcus Greene for writing excellent tests that poked many holes in my knowledge. And most of all, thanks to my wife and kids who put up with me studying non-stop for the last two weeks.
