Howdy Ranchers,

At last, I appeared for the test and managed to clear the test with a decent score. I really want to thank all at JavaRanch.

I think the test was comparatively easier than I'd expected, though my marks may not reflect that. I performed really bad in AWT (50). Rest was okay.

I would like to share my experience with all those who are preparing for the test.

I referred to Roberts, Heller, et.al. for the preparation. I think the book is fairly good, having overall very good coverage of the subject.

I also referred to the online last minute guide prepared by Dylan Walsh. I think that was cool and pretty handy.

I could take only few mock tests, since I had only 2 days to prepare for the test. The Marcus Green mock tests really rocks. Guys, if you want to get a feel of the real test, probably this is the one (AFAIK). The average score of the 3 tests was 82 in my case. I also took all the mock tests from the Book CD. The average was around 80.

I referred to many of the other mock tests for which the links could be found through the JavaRanch certification FAQs. And do not forget to take The hardest questions before you go to the tests. Yesterday, I took that test and scored 16 correct out of 19. I also wanted to take up Dan's tests, but could never manage to do so because I was always in want of time.

On the day, I referred to all my test analysis and related notes and I think that helped me a lot.

Well, I again thank all at JavaRanch.

Thanks and regards,
Kinjal Sonpal
