Hello javaranchers!
Gave my exam today and feeling ok about the score(85%).I had hoped for a score above 90%, but then some Garbage collection questions trapped me.
I would like to thank all the javaranch members for helping me by answering all my questions and I just couldn't have scored even this without this site.Obviously the K&B book was awesome.And Dan's exams were really good.
I wish I had practiced more mock exams.I wasn't able to practice all 27 of Dan's exams coz I had set a date for the exam and didn't have the patience to wait more.But thanks to you all friends!U were really amazing in your responses to questions.Keep it up!I would give full credit to this site for my score.
What I have learnt from my experience in the exam is that practice a lot of Mock exams and try to modify and write your own code in all possible ways for understanding a topic better.Thank you all once again.

Hey Sagarika
Congratulations !! 85% is a good score and don't try to undermine your achievement. You should not just feel 'ok' but should be really happy.
Good luck to you for future.
Cheers
Harwinder

Hi Sagrika don't feel disappointed. It's a great score given that u did give the exam on scheduled date. Cheer up.

in my opinion it doesn't matter much what ur score is. the real thing is that now u r in the league of sun certified java programmers and shud be great in itself. also the questions every person gets differ and that can be the difference in the score. So well done & hope that u succed in whatever u do.

Sorry for the delay in replying.Was caught up with flu.May be after seeing the exam marks.Just kidding.
Thank you Harwinder,Lakshmi,Vivek Nidhi,Mohit and Vishy for the congratulations and for the encouraging words.May be you are right.And Vivek Nidhi is it really true about the passion that Mallus have for java and C?But in my case I guess it is true.Ya you guys are right we are all Sun certified programmers now.So that itself is a great feeling.Thanks again guys.
All the very best to all of u too.
Cheers,
Sagarika.

Sagarika,
Congratulations on a great score! You're not the first person to be tricked by the GC questions!
We're glad the book helped!
