Well, i passed the exam some days ago. I wish I would have been able to archieve a higher score.
I took the Marcus Green exams a week before the test and scored safely over 90% in all of them. In the real thing my score was only as low as 84%.
I guess i was really well prepared, but i've totally messed up my score: I could only sleep for 3 hours or something the night before. When taking the exam I was quite in a hurry, cause i had an appointment right after the exam, so i rushed through the questions in about 40 minutes.
After hitting the finish button and seeing the score I wasn't satisified at all.
Damn... some minutes later i realized my wrong answers. I even placed a wrong answer on a stupidly simple question, which showed an invalid main method (wrong signature) and asked what would happen if you try to run the thing. I answered it wrong. Grrr.
Please people do me a favor - never take this exam in a hurry. Relax and take your time! Utilize the 2 hours.

Jeff , you are SCJP now. that is the most important thing. I feel people in the industry don't see the score. If you can deliver or not , it is the crux of the matter. your score of 84 % is very , very good . now , built upon that & move forward to get into upper echelons of development community. Have fun & party.
Shailesh.
