I know 77% (47 questions correctly answered) isn't all that great but I am excited to be moving on to preparations for SCJD and SCWD (my copy of "SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification" by Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia is on its way from Amazon.com).
I discovered javaranch.com last thursday (Apr 24) and I took the exam today (Apr 30). Didn't have time to take the mock exams. However, I did have time to look at all the wonderful scores JavaRanchers have posted. That gave me some confidence that, although I might not get a great score for my preparation, I might at least make it in the exam and, sure enough, I did. I hope to use JavaRanch (and various resources on it) for SCWCD exam. You will see more of me on this site till I am done with SCJD and SCWCD.
My $0.02 about the exam:
* 120 minutes is sufficient time for 61 questions on the test (although more time goes in reading the questions than answering them!)
* the exam is prepared to test what one doesnt' know about java as much as what one knows about it.
My suggestions to you if you are taking the exam:
* Read the questions extra carefully...I got an impression that the test is partly a test of one's understanding of english
* Stay focused (on the exam) even though some questions are boring and twisted and contrived!
* Relax...this exam alone doesn't make or break your career.
