I just got the Java 1.4 Exam.
I was quite nervous about passing it as I hadn't passed a full mock exam prior to the real thing.
I wanted to get the exam before I went on a long holiday , otherwise I think I would have given it a few more weeks study.
I found K&B's book good , and enjoyed reading it -read the whole thing through when I first got it !
I got 67% overall which I'm a bit disappointed with in hindsight. There where a few Thread questions which I didn't know at all , got 37% in that section.
My next worst was operators and assignments where I got 50% .
I did pretty well in the other sections and got 100 in a few of them which I'm pleased with.
I'd suggest the exam takers aim to be 100% sure on aquestions before unmarking it - I had 10 questions still marked with 5 minutes to go , and made my best guess at that stage.
Good luck to everyone else and make sure to round up the cows !!

Good job, Joe. Congratulations!
(Don't worry about the score. It just helps you know which areas you can improve on. Of course, you can work on those areas.)
