What a relief! I am very happy with my score (88%) and I am also very happy to have found so much help especially the number of very good mock exams available online.
I think my preparation was very similar to most people (R&H and BB Exam Cram books, followed by as many Dan Chisholm mocks as I could fit in and finally the Marcus Green mock). Big thanks to both these guys...
I also paid for and took the three Sun mock exams - my advice to anyone considering the same is - don't bother. The level of questions is about the same as Dans and there is at least one glaring error (a Collections question where the answer states that ArrayList is not a good choice for random access and suggests using the RandomAccess *class* instead!).
Finally, I am now considering what to go for next - I had planned on SCWCD and bought the Sybex study guide but stumbled across some postings on this site which suggest the exam is about to change (radically). Can someone advise whether I should wait/try for SCEA/go ahead anyway?
Thanks again to everyone who gives up time to provide such valuable support and encouragement...
