Just skimmed through Kathy's book (skipping the examples etc) on the subway to and from work, and did a practice test.
Exam is easy. Hardest and most interesting questions were about threads. A bunch of the usual stupid ones where, for example, they try and trip you up by dropping the "static" in the main function declaration -- the question writers really should get a clue, what does that kind of question test for, anyway? -- A few GC questions but they were simple. Very little about the collection API, and not much inner class stuff.

You just skimmed it on the subway ? Geez - I think you worked too hard - we heard about one guy who just put it under his pillow for two weeks... he got a 96% !

That's nothing. I heard about a guy that left his copy in a barn where it was subsequently eaten by a goat. The following day, the goat scored 97% on the exam.

Great score John!
Congratulations.
Igor:
You will get the result (how much score etc.)printed on the paper. But on the screen details of your performance will be shown. Like how much percentage on garbage collection etc.
