I took the test on Saturday and scored 96%. I missed two questions. One on threads and the other one on Language Fundamentals.
The level of difficulty is about the same as Marcus Green mock exams.
The following helped me in passing the exam.
- A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification - Khalid A Mogul
- Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide
(Kathy & Bates)
- Velmurugan's notes (http://www.geocities.com/velmurugan_p)
- Mock exams on the net

Thanks Vivek! The questions are not that deep. You just need to make
sure that you understand the concepts very well and answer the
questions very carefully. I read both the books that I have mentioned
in my posting. You need to be aware of the fact that the thread scheduling
is platform dependent.

Hello thanks for Reponse
for your comment on Thread Scheduling. Hope there is 2 things that is Platform Dependent in Java, Thread Scheduling and Garbage Collection. I hope in WIN32 Systems it is premeptive and Linux based Systems its Time slicing. Any deep undertanding of this is not required I guess.What about GC questions

I think the questions on GC are very straight forward. Kathy&Bates book
covers this chapter very well.
Good Luck!
