I just took the exam - scored 92%.
Exam is not very difficult but questions are reasonably good. One needs fair amount of preparation and good background.
Specifications are very important.
I missed 5 questions in total. Lot of questions on tag libraries.
I missed the question about internal mapping that container does. One question on security is tricky. J2EE Pattern questions were simple.

My Preparation:
HFSJ - read thrice.
Specifications - once
JSTL Specification first few chapters - to brush up
These postings on javaranch.com
Did some mock exams on j2eecertificate and javaranch.
Registered on jdiscuss but could never login so couldnt do mocks there.
Finally a day before exam, i took HFSJ mock exam - got 72%. So i guess +20% rule holds good.

Thanks a lot to all ranchers for discussion questions.
Authors - Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates, Bryan Basham, : Thanks for such a wonderful book. I learnt a lot.

Thanks
Sai

nothing that is not specified in the exam objectives will appear in exam.
like what you are asking, nothing on http status codes, jsp:invoke or anything of that sort.

You can be assured, HFSJ covered topics very well. DynamicAttributes is not covered very well but separate tutorial is available written by same authors. That will give you enough ground!

Hope this helps

That's a great score. You should be very proud.

However, this is not the correct forum for posting your results. I'm moving this to the Sun Certified Results forum
