Hi All,

Finally, at last, with little preparation after long working hours, I passed the exam with 73%. I am happy. Here is my exam experience.

- The real exam is really cool and there is NO need to scroll down to see further code. Entire code snippet is visible at once. This really helps.

- The exam is mix of simple, medium and complex questions. Even in simple questions also, there will be a trick.

- I took break (eventhough the timer is moving) twice each with 5 minutes duration to release stress in my brain.

- Two minute drills and exam notes are very helpful before 2/3 days of the exam.

- Participating in Javaranch forums and writing code snippets. I wrote around 200 small programmes to understand/remember the concepts.

Finally, paramount point is, don't get nervous and stay calm. The more you relax the more score you get.

By the way, I have 4+ years of experience in Java and related technologies.

Special thanks to K&B.

Thanks & Regards,
Surya.
