It must have been my comfortable shoes.
Just kidding.
Passed it this morning. It was the first time I've taken it. Missed three of the 61 questions. I just came to this site yesterday for the first time, but it was helpful to me to read some of the messages on the forums and to play the Java Rules Roundup game.
Most of my preparation was just plain using Java since 1995, but I also bought Kathy and Bert's book and read the section on test taking strategies (i.e., cherry picking the easy ones, marking the ones I wanted to go back and review, etc.) and chapter 8 on anonymous inner classes (which I didn't understand at all until yesterday). I also did the MasterExam thing that was on the CD in the book, and used the ones I missed to focus my studying yesterday.
Thanks you guys. I'm pretty happy about my results.

Steve -
Awesome - you must be some sort of genius!
We're glad the book helped.
