I finally got my certification done. Although my percentage is really bad!!
I got a mere 60%, but what I learnt from this certification was a whole lot more. Thanks to the certification forum and the best books: Kathy-Bates and Mughal book.
Certainly, practising coding more would have helped me go the extra mile.
Anyway, here are a few things that helped me
- All of Dan's comprehensive exams,
- Dan's single topic's helped me strengthen the basics
- Marcus Greene's exams
- Books: Mughal and Kathy-Bates
- Lots and lots of coding( which i din't do!! )

Hope future test takers specially take note of the last bullet because it helps you understand the language a whole lot better.

Hey Sandhya, Congrats
Take it easy...percentage does'nt count much. Whether you passed or not is all that counts.
Good Luck to you.

Congratulations!
Percentage is just a matter of practise. Giving the exam and clearing it is more important.
