wiehoo But what a disappointment the test center was, as someone else wrote here: 14" monitors on 60hz with humming CPU's. New candidates coming in every 20 minutes. Glad the exam was quite easy (with help of the book of Kathy & Bert), concentration wouldn't be really possible there.
Also, avoid the Complete java 2 certification guide by roberts, heller & ernest. Although sold as a 1.4 book it's really aimed at the 1.2 exam (found that out last week, the night before I was about to my exam. gladly I could reschedule)

The RHE book is a 1.2 book. There is a 1.4 book by Heller and Roberts (they left Michael Ernest out) but it hasn't gotten very good reviews.

AFAIK it's promoted as a 1.4 book (the 2nd edition of RHE). It has a few pages about Collections so at least they tried.
thanks for the congrats now time to look for a project with 2 weeks...
