Well here is my story:
1. I almost run out of time (I had 2 minutes left and 4 questions to answer )
2. Studied about 4 months (well, 2 of them seriously)
3. Book: K&B
4. Mock Exams: Sorry to say that, but: None. Not even the K&B CD Exam.
I found extremely useful K&B chapter's Self Tests, though, which now I think that they are more difficult than the ones in the real exam.
Section Analysis/Questions:
Declarations and Access Control: 75% (about 8 questions)
Flow Control, Assertions, and Exception Handling: 55% (about 7)
Garbage Collection: 100% (about 6)
Language Fundamentals: 70% (about 7)
Operators and assignments: 50% (about 6)
Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type and Object Orientation: 83% (about 6)
Threads: 75% (about 7)
Fundamental Classes in the java.lang package: 83% (about 8)
The Collections Framework: 66% (about 6)
Overall I think that the exam was not difficult. I just needed to study more.

I would realy like to thank Kathy and Bert for their excellent book.

Thanks.

6 questions on gc seems a lot. Does that mean we will see "Islands of isolations " questions?
Congratulations!!!
