a little dissapoint with the score, makes 3 mistakes in building Custom Tags


FYI: i've got 96% on SCJP 1.4.

it took me about 3 months preparation, 2-4 hours on working day, and a little extra time on holiday.
hmm.. of course with HSF.

So, thanks a million for Kathy and Bert for a very nice book.
i think this book alone is enough to pass the exam, but if you wanna get a high score, you have to read the spec. specially in dinamic attribute..
i did mock on j2eecertificate.com and jwebplus. it helps alot too.. so thanks for the outhors
and last but not least.. thanks for all of you guys in the javaranch for support in everything, what a lovely place..

btw, i've got 70 questions during the exam, but the report mention that there are only 69 scored questions. what is that means? is that mean i have to answer a question that doesn't count at all?
And one more thing.. why is they do "Math.floor" instead "Math.round" on the score? i answer 60 questions right, so the score must be 60/69*100 = 86.95%. it should be 97% isn't it?
