Well...
Done is done, but still not Old or Mature enough to score 6 point higher.

Jimmy -
Excellent score !
IMHO I think that everyone should try to keep in mind that JavaRanch is an unusual environment. Sun believes that this version of the exam is the toughest ever! They determined this by giving the beta questions to many, many applicants. Based on these results they determined to lower the passing score from the previous version of the exam!
The folks who make posts here (JavaRanch) tend to be VERY advanced in their understanding of Java. Even in the beginner forum, most of the questions are challenging.
Kathy and I are just about finished with a book that is meant for programmers who are new to Java and OO. This book is getting a lot of positive feedback from tech. editors and beta reviewers, so we believe it will be a good book. And, it seems to me as I read the posts here on JavaRanch, that most of the people here (at least the 'posters'), will find the new book very easy.
So, I guess the summary is:
90 % is a REALLY, REALLY GREAT score, and because JavaRanch has so many strong Java experts we tend to forget that!
But, if you could look at all the scores of all the people who take the exam, you would see that ...
90% is FANTASTIC !!!
Congratulations !
-Bert

Bert, I want to thank you for replying my email, thanks for your wonderful book which has been treated as my Jible!
And I am very grateful to Valentin Crettaz, Corey McGlone, Dan Chisholm and Kathy, they replied my posts very nicely and friendly.
Without you guys, I wouldn’t make it that quick and get a ranch-acceptable score!
