I found the exam to be much easier than I had anticipated. For the most part I just used Kathy and Bert's book to prepare. Not sure if it was because I was so tense and expecting the worse, but the actual exam questions seemed easier than those in the K&B book.

I did use Dan's exams, and was scoring 60% to 70% on most topics (but some much lower), but if someone was pressed for time, I think they could use only the K&B book.

I had what seemed to be at least 10 questions on Threads (which made me nervous), but only one simple question on inner/nested classes(?).

Last thing: I think that you must at least click "next question" through all the questions to get to the screen that lets you review your marked questions and your unanswered. The review screen was very nice: Showed all your unanswered and marked and let you go straight to any of them, or review only unanswered, or only marked.

Thanks Kathy and Bert for your awesome book.

To shandilya popuru's question. I just got a new job using peregrine's Service Desk product, so I will be focusing all my attention on that. Looking to more certifications, I really have no idea which one I'd like to do next.
