I was so nervous that I wasn't able to sleep! I had a quarrel with my girlfriend and I really thought I was toasted! Happy to say though, I passed the exam.

I advise people who might have the same experience I had to drink up a lot of water/sports drink before the exam so your mind would stay fresh even when you didn't get enough sleep(but for heaven's sake, get some sleep!).

Eating lots of nuts(Did I hear somebody say "Growers"?) would help too and eating some meat, egg and rice during breakfast sure helped me a lot. Oh, thanks to that hot fudge sundae from McDonald's also(it helped me get through my depression).

I used K & B book for my study guide and Marcus Green's examulator.

Thanks guys!

The exam was tough! And up to the last question I wasn't sure if the answers I made were correct! I was nervous one of 3/4 answers would fail all the time. In the end, it wasn't as tough as the questions in the mock exams because I got an average of 72% passing in mock exams and 79% in the real exam. It's really a matter of reading the questions carefully and having a solid understanding of Java.
