Guys..it's a pleasure for me share this with all javaranchers. I'm working with JAVA during 2 years and now i got my certification.
Thats my "key to the sucess".
- Start reading Mugals book -> it covers a lot of trick questions and fundamentals that we usually forgot;
- Go to Robert & Simons book -> if you ave chance to make the virtual test will be better;
- Make a lot of mock exams, i made 10 -> Dann mocks are one of the bests;
- Of course read ALL links in JavaRanch -> Including Sun Certifications Results;
AND
-you MUST know when you be ready to take the test. If you're not quite sure then take some more days studying and preparing yourself;
About the Test: It covers things that sun expects you to know...nothing more. You can expect some "trick" questions, but if you studyied and are very calm you will realize them.
*Valentin wrote some notes about the "certification philosophy" that i think everybody who wants take the test should read.
One special thanks to Adriano Maciel who "encorajes" me to take.
Once more Thanks
Leonardo Pilatti

Thanks for your reply.
It is written that Questions will be multiple choice and short answer in the Sun Java Site. So you didn't get any short answer questions. You got only multiple questions, right?

yes. only multiple questions (with one or more correct answers). I was talking with other guys who have already done the test and nobody receive short answers as questions. I think this kind of answer will be discarted.
