I passed the exam yesterday.
I would like to share my experience...
First of all, i would like to say that my objective was not only to get the certification but to learn as well as possible the concept of java programming.
So I worked hardly, about 6 months,also in topics that were not covered on the exam objectives) and get (i think) a deep knowledge of java programming.
The exam was not as though as i expected, maybe because i was well prepared.
I get several mock exams on the net (mocks exams on the javaRanch list), but i used mainly dan chisholm web site (thanks Dan). If you go through his website, you will learn a lot about java programming and become well prepared (i mean high scrore!) for the certification. Some questions are challenging and, as a rule, more difficult than the real things.
Thanks also to all JavaRanchers who give me several times explanations and answers about very tricky questions...
So my advise is: don't focus about certification, enjoy learning experience. Success will come by itself.
my next step ? spend more time with my lonely wife :-)
