I passed today with 75%. Not a great score,though. However I just studied for two weeks for 2 hours each day and upto 6 hrs on the weekends. In my experience it's a pretty easy exam if you have been working in this area and have done some moderate studying. I mainly used the following and just did 3 mock exams from JQPlus.
a. Dan Chisolm's topic exams. Excellent set of questions which are tougher than the actual exam. In fact the thread questions are really good. If one can go through all the thread questions and understand each one of them thoroughly, I am quite sure that one get 100% on this section in the actual exam. I didn;'t go through all of Dan's exams. I mainly used questons on thread. Had I done so, I am sure my score would have been even higher
b. JQPlus simulator.
This is again little tougher than actual exam but quite clsoe to the actual exam. If one can again practice with all the mock exams and understand these well, I am sure that getting 90% and above would be a breeze.
When I enetered the exam, and started solving the questions, I felt very relaxed as the questions seemed to be easy and I felt familiar with the type of the exams.
I mainly lost out on flow control,exception handling and assertions and couple of questions on threads. Time is quite enough for the exam. I got 7 questions on threads on the exam and I took almost 25 mins to solve these.
Anyways gouys, I would like to thanks Dan Chisolm, Jqplus folks and of cpurse all you java ranchers. This is a real good discussion board to get your doubts cleared.
Ok, here i come SWCD!!!
