Thanks all the ranchers here and special thanks to Dan, Valentin, Kathy, Jose...
The exam is much easier than I expected and than the most mock exams I have taken. The worst part I've did is in GC section, I got only 67%.
For me, the code questions are pretty simple, but I spent time on some concept questions (and I might lost the major on these). Be careful that the answers have tiny differences.
So I'd suggest you backup with a solid understand on object-oriented concepts and of course those objectives mentioned in the exam.
I finished all the questions in 1 hr 10 mins, after I go through each question again, I still have 1 minitue left. So don't worry about the time, for sure you read clearly the questions. And checking is very important.
Last suggestion for passing the exam - be active at Java Ranch

Excellent score, and an even better recommendation. Nicely done. Hopefully you'll be able to hang out 'round the ranch and help some new greenhorns to pass too!

Really ? Why?
I got the report as :"...You answered 58 questions correctly which gives you a score of 95%"
I calculated that 58/61 = 0.9508%
So 95% is reasonable, I couldnt' expect they would give me 96%

The questions are not difficult at all, but I felt like I knew A is the answer for topc T, but you have to choose the correct answer from A1, A2 and A3, they are pretty close to answer A.
I used Thinking in Java for the preparation, and Complete Certificate Java 2 (likely the name) for review. My opinion is just reading is insufficient, you need to think more while reading and try any doubts out (not just for GC topic, but for all the others).
