Hello happy townsfolk of the JavaRanch. Today was a good day, I passed the Java Programmer exam with a respectful 80%. I have been studying for a few months, in the evenings and weekends. Even at lunchtime I would sit in the car and study.
I would recommend the following tips:
1)Use a good book (Kathy and Bert�s book is as good as they get).
2)Practise exam questions � you can never do enough.
3)Write code on the PC to help with areas that are hazy.
4)On the day of the exam � get psyched up (it�s an exam � positive mental attitude goes a long way) � I drove to the exam and had the volume very loud listening to Nirvana, to get me into the mood.
I would like say thank you to:
Dan Chisholm (your questions were so hard, that I was almost reduced to tears).
Bert and Kathy, thank you for writing such a wonderful book that almost made
studying for the exam a pleasure.
Valentin and Jessica along with the rest of the JavaRanch team, there were many times, I was enlightened from the words of wisdom.
So what�s next?�..I think I�ll do my part to make this world a better place!
