Hi all,
I have cleared the exam with 96%.
I would like to thank you all for help extended and those wonderful discussions.
Having appeared for the exam, I would like to tell you all my part of the story about the preparation.
1) K&B Certification guide
An excellent certification oriented book.
2) Dan't Test
I think these exams are simply fabulous. I didn't consider them as exams. Rather these exams gave me the concepts in the form of sample code questions. I strongly suggest them. These help you to come from late 80's to 90's.
3) velmurugan_p Notes
http://www.geocities.com/velmurugan_p/notes.html
Excellent notes. I think they cover 80% of the concepts. Very good for last week revision.
4) Abhilash's Quizes

These are some other good conceptual mock exams

Thank you Andres Gonzalez and Gopal....
I have a question. Now that I have cleared the exam, I am sure I won't study as I used to. But I don't want to loose touch with the wonderful knowledge I have gained in the process. Would you please suggest me someway of keep refreshing my knowledge and also using it in a beneficial way(in the form of some projects etc.)
Thank you
Lalitha

Hi
I was in the celebration mood for few days so I apologise I couldn't get back to you all.
First of all thanks to Bert Bates and Fisher Daniel for the wishes.
Andres is that a test you are talking about or is it just the new version?
Harjinder my answer to that question will be SCWCD. It really depends on individuals, but I am a Masters student developing commercial products and I have been doing a lot of work in servlets and JSP. So this exam would be beneficial to me in 2 ways:
1. I can know why am I doing certain things a certain way.
2. I can learn more appropriate ways of coding or in others words I will learn to code the better way.
And I think certifications anytime fine tune the knowledge you have.
But the first answer to what_next_after_certifications question is to keep yourself in touch with the knowledge you have already gained. I just hope I can do it.
Regards,
Lalitha
