The Bates/Sierra book really rocked. I found it to be right on in terms of content and the sample questions/tests we're as close as any to the real test. (I can also say that I've never actually read all 500 pages of ANY other computer book).
A question though, how many people put their score on their resumes? Also, does anybody put the logo on their resumes?
On to the SCWCD!
Thanks to everyone on this board.
Michael

Oh yeah, and it seemed like there we're about 800 questions on threads (dunno, maybe I just got lucky) and even though I've never done any threading-type programming, I got them ALL correct.
A definite thanks to Bert and Kathy's book for that.

Congratulations!
We're happy the book helped.

p.s. we discourage listing / posting actual test results outside of JavaRanch.

Is this in reference to putting the score on a resume? If so, who is "we" and why is it discouraged?
Thanks.

Your certificate from Sun will not indicate your score. Certified programmers are entitled to privacy concerning this issue, and it is not consistent to encourage employers to try to uncover this information from employment candidates.
Hope that helps.
