Hi All,
I passed the test this afternoon. I am not interested in posting my score. I did well in a lots of sections however the Thread and GC questions were pretty tough and numerous. Make sure you study those sections. Also, the Math and Wrapper questions were tricky - know the APIs.
Finally, take as many mock exams as you can. In retrospect, I should have taken more... but what the heck I PASSED!
Good luck.

Actually, I am strictly a Java web developer so I wasn't interested in the 1.2. I was delighted that 1.4 did not include the AWT and Layout manager criteria which doesn't apply to my trade.
I decided to take advantage of this momentum... so I almost immediately started studying for the SCWCD exam. I've started reading the SCWCD Exam Study Kit which I heard was an excellent book and starting point. I plan to sit for this exam by mid November. And the SCEA by April... maybe.
Thanks for the support guys.
