If you are reading this, i'm sure you want to know more about what i did to pass the exam.
Well, I have a 2 years experience programming in Java (most of it servlets, javaBeans and JSP), but for more than a year I was completely out of the programming world. I studied for the exam like 1 to 2 hours at my work desk for the last 2 months(after work! of course which gave a great impression to my manager ) Unfortunately I took the exam excatly on the last valid day of my voucher and completely missed to study the chapter on colections, hashtables and my inner classes and threads weren't strong, needless to say that they were my lowest scores. But I passed with 75%!
I highly recommend the book from Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates GREAT BOOK, the Self tests are the best way to learn, and from this site the round up game rules! (you know the one with the little cows.)
Good luck to all you java learners in your exam!
don't wait to the last day of your voucher to present your exam, that wasn't the best part of my strategy
