Got 56/59. (94.9%). Why does Sun have to cast the score to an int?...(int)score...That's not right.
Although, I've only been here a few short weeks, JavaRanch has helped me tremendously!
Thanks to All!!!
See you all in the SCWCD forum...

Keys to my success:
(1) Lots of mock exams. In total I took 42 exams over a month period, totalling over 2,500 questions from JQ+, JWhiz, Exam Cram, RHE, Mughal, and the web. These exams sharpen your eye for malformed code and make the trick questions easy to spot.
(2) Write lots of small programs to test the unclear topics. First get the code to work, then see how many ways you can break it.
(3) The only info I memorized were all the method signatures of the Math class and the constructors of the I/O class.
(4) And last but not least. If you are still unsure about something...Ask the kind folks here at the Ranch. They are more than helpful.

Viki,
If you are doing well on JQ+, you will do well on the exam. In my experience JQ+ and JTips are more difficult than the real exam.
About threads...I think I had more questions on threads than anything else. They just kept coming.
Important Points to Know About Threads:
-How to construct a Thread.
-Which methods are static and non-static.
-How to start and stop a Thread.
-Ability to spot code which will deadlock.
-How to synchronize objects and methods.
-Which exceptions a Thread might throw and why.
Hope that helps.
