Last Thursday I passed the 1.4 exam with 86%.
I could not sleep at all the night before the exam and by the time I left my home for the exam centre in the afternoon, I was walking around like a zombie ! So you CAN do reasonably well if you can't sleep the night before an exam, it's just that you could probably do better if you did get a good nights sleep!
Anyway here are my study tips:
1.Buy and study Kathy and Bert's book. I think this book is the best exam preparation tool I used.
2.I did many of Dan Chisholms exams - I found the Thread questions particularly useful since these, in my opinion, are the hardest questions in the exam.
3.Take the exam on the CD of Kathy and Bert's book and download and take the bonus exam.
4.Regularly visit this forum to refine your knowledge.
5.Take this exam:
1.4 Mock Exam Engine which is harder than the real exam.
I'm just wondering which exam to take next - does anyone have any ideas on which other Java certification is most marketable e.g. there is a Web Component Exam and I heard there was an EJB exam coming soon?
Thanks to Bert, Kathy, Dan C. and all who contribute to this forum for all the help they have given!
Good luck!

Good job, Julian. Congratulations!

How about SCWCD?

A great score in any case, truly incredible what with the sleep deprivation and all
Congratulations!
