Started preparing last month. The main resource I used was K&B book. Probably covered it 3 times(mostly in the last 10 days).

Some pointers on the test:
1. There is sufficient time.
2. I got tough threading questions in the beginning of the test. Don't be afraid of that & loose track.
3. Review questions you are doubtful of. If you still have more time left, pass through all the questions( i left the test with 25 minutes remaining).

I was aware that GC is a weak link(got 33% in the test).

On hindsight, i should have practised more online(example: whizlabs). I did take Marcus green mock test 2 days agao.

Again: Thanks a bunch to Kathy Sierra & B.Bates for the wonderful book. Thanks to Marcus for the mock test.

Moving on to Oracle DBA cert + Sun Java Web services. My aim is to get them done in next 2-3 months.
