I know that score isn't considered very high, but I think it's pretty good considering:
1. I passed on the first try.
2. I studied 10 hours total, with the TV on, using only the "Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide".
3. I didn't do any of the exercises or practice questions.
4. I had no knowledge of the the new features in 1.5 until I read about them yesterday.

That said, I already understood Java pretty well to start with (other than the stuff new to 1.5), and I consider myself a pretty hardcore programmer.

Not having done any of the practice questions/exams and having no clue what the questions would be like, the exam was harder than I expected. There wasn't a single "gimme" question that I didn't have to stop and think about.

Gonna go for some Microsoft Certs now. Anyone know how hard the "Web Applications using Visual C#.NET and Visual Studio.NET" exam (70-315) is compared to this?

Thanks.

-Brian
