My turn on the vanity wall
I just got 77% on SCJP 1.4.
Not as high as I'd like. I handled threads readily enough, but got bushwacked by GC and Collections.
I think I got more milage out of careful parsing of code rather than memorization. Be sure to missing braces, static trying to access non-static, and other such idiot's delights.
Kathy & Bert - your book was a godsend! Thanks!

Todd -
Congrats!
Don't feel bad, GC seems to bushwhack a LOT of people... it's sneaky
