I was expecting a higher score when I ended the test, but I guess 79 is ok.

I didn't take a prior appointment with the Test Center and so had to wait in the lobby for about an hour and a half The lady said something about downloading only one set of questions at a time or something.

Finally I was called in and shown to my seat.

The test had 70 questions(one was a dummy question)

The test had about 4-5 questions each on standard actions(<jsp:useBean>,<jsp:getProperty> , using beans/Maps/functions with EL, Design Patterns, Custom Tags and JSTL, Security, Directory structure, Servlet API, Deployment descriptor elements.
There were about 5 drag-drop questions. These don't remember your answers for review later. You will have to answer them all over again.

I used the HFSJ book and scored 60% in the mock exam at the end of the book. I guess the thumb rule of adding about 20% to the HFSJ mock worked in my case. I also did the Review questions at the the end of the SCWCD Study Guide by Hanumant Deshmukh. I didn't use the specs a lot. Some questions on the exam looked familiar while others were not. But I guess it was just like any other Sun exam - a combination of easy and difficult ones in the ratio 80:20

To sum up, I am not too dissapointed with the score given that I had deceided to put in not more than 2 months. I also have a full time job to juggle along with social life

Thats it. Good Luck to those preparing for the exam.
