Hi guys!

I am so happy of being a Certified Programmer!!! :-)

I think 83% is not bad...I studied for like 2 months (but I already knew Java...)
I only used K&B and their mock exams, I also took the Java Ranch Round (156 question twice), and SOME of the mock exams recommended here.
I have to say that most of the mock exams are too old (they use deprecated API) and they actually confused me a little bit...so I would suggest to try only recent mock exams (my lowest score was about threads!!!).
I also wrote notes for each objective, and I read them just after the 2 minute drill from K&B, 1 hour before the real test.

I took this test to give my resume an additional value, because I just moved to the US (New Jersey) and I am STILL looking for a job...

How can I update my resume to highlight the certification?
Should I put a logo?
Do I have to do anything but wait for Sun to send me the certification or is there anything I can do, like downloading the logo?

Thank you guys!!!
Gio :-)
