Hi Ranchers,

I gave the test on saturday and scored 87%. I have got less scores in Collections/Generics and Threading (70 and 75 respectively).

K & B is the best book and is more than enough for the exam. I have found some topics that were asked in mock exams which the book did not cover but I did not get even one question from any such topics in the real exam.

I felt a bit uncomfortable with the drag and drop questions as I did not find much of them in mock exams.

Mistakes done by me:

Joined this forum only last week. Should have joined earlier. I realised that active participation in the group will definitely be a huge plus.

I haven't written much mock exams other than Master exams that I got from the book.

Should have allocated more time for tougher topics like collections and Threading.
