The test had been postposted quite a few times already. I told myself "you had to take it this time".

Spent a few months reading HF S&J first time - one day read 30 minutes, then stopped a few days and then another day read another 30 minutes.

Two days before the exam, opened HF S&J again and started reading second time. I read so slow and could not finish it until 12 hours before the test.

On the morning of test day, I took the final mock up exam. It was definitely a bad idea to take THAT final mock up so late.

I got 69% in the mock up. "Yes, I can make it today!"

Drank a cup of coffee and went to take the test.

Started test...
... I know this one.
... Not sure this one. Mark it...
... Now I finish it.

The final score is...

72% Yes!

- What a start of year 2005!
- Thanks to Bert, Kathy, Bryan and ranchers.

Thank you everyone.

Only one suggestion. If people have no programming experience with those knowledge, I suggest you should set up a local environment. When reading the book, you should try them with sample pages. There are two advantages of doing this:

(1) You can really remember what you read from the book;
(2) You will be capable of writing programs, not only taking the test.

I did not prepare the exam well. The only two reasons I could pass it are:
(1) The YOU-KNOW-BOOK (2) I have two year J2EE programming experience.

Good luck and have fun.
