Six questions wrong.
1 Thread Q - couldnt apply any answers to it so I threw a dart and hoped for the best.
1 Thread Q - Theory - a stupid oversight on my behalf
2 Declaration & Access - wasnt focused enough
1 Fundamentals - another oversight
1 Inner classes - I never came accross
I am happy just to pass, but I think I over studied and couldnt get to sleep the night before the exam. Im sure had I managed to get a good nights sleep would produce a better result.
Oh and one more thing: I scored 53/59 which is
89.83 percent.
Sun uses Math.floor(89.83) Mark is 89%
If you use Math.round(89.83) Mark is 90%
Thanks for your support Guys and Gals and thanks to Java Ranch and the moderators.

Funny:

Good job Stephan!!

Nice Job! I'm shooting to at least get an 80. If you don't me asking, could you let us know what you were scoring on some of the mock exams? I like to hear what different people thought about the mocks compared to the real test.
Thanks,
Rick

Rick,
I was scoring 95% on JQPlus before the exam. Im sure I would have scored better with more sleep the night before.
