Here is another exam report - just came back from exam, scored better than I expected. I had little experience in Java. Dan's exams and 'The Book' - (Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates) were very helpful. Thanks!! I did go through all the exams on Dan's website, and my incorrect answers twice - that certainly helped. Hopefully this certification would help me find more job opportunities. Good luck to those preparing for the exam.
