I had my exam on 30/11. I'm so happy to say that I've passed.
First of all I would like to thank all of you. Reading the questions and tips here has really helped me to pass.
To get prepared I just read the HFSJ (great book), read questions here and wrote my own notes. I tried to use notes written by someone else, but I believe that our own notes are the best because they reflect our own strengths and weaknesses.
In fact I believe that the real exam was a little bit easier than the book�s mock exam. This mock exam is really helpful.
1)J2EEpatterns questions were very simple. 2)My lowest score was at Standard Actions. And I thought I knew this subject!! The questions were complex. 3)This exam is easier than the SCJP. The questions are smaller and more direct to the point. The code portions are smaller too.
M Jairam said __________________________________________________________________________ You said that the questions on standard actions were complex. Then what is the best way to prepare for this? Any suggestions are highly appreciated. __________________________________________________________________________
Well, what I realised is that my best results were in areas where I did a lot of real exercises using my computer. After reading and completing the exercises in the book, I used to try the examples (sometimes with some little changes) in my computer. And it really helped me to understand everything and to remember it later. I didn�t have time to practice Standard Actions, that�s why my score in this subject was low.

Alex, now I�m trying to find a job to work with JSP�s and Servlets. And I plan to start studying EJB�s soon.
