Yesterday i took the exam and passed with 88% (64 questions correct out of 72)

More specific:
declaration, initialization and scoping: 100%
flow control: 81%
api contents: 90%
concurrency: 87% (with the 1.4 i scored 50%)
oo concepts: 80%
collections / generics: 90%
fundamentals: 90%

ingredients for the success:
- k&b book
- some javaranch
- lot of exercise

more specific about the exercises i made:
- most of all with threading, because those questions are the hardest to answer
- also i tried everything i doubt about (will it compile or not, what's the output,...)

the drag-and-drop questions were fun to answer, but it's a pitty you can't see what you answered unless you answer de question again from scratch. so that's maybe an enhancement for the future.

now i can enjoy the world cup of football, because in my schedule of studying i forgot to take into account the french open (roland garros) and the world cup

Go Brasil

Congrats Roel!

That's a fantastic score. We hope you'll stick around and help answer some questions now that you're a certified guru!
