Two weeks' study about 1-2hrs. per night from two different books (one was a Cybex) that were riddled with errors. Also did some playing around in Eclipse with examples from the books. Lastly, I have worked with Java off and on for many years, starting with 1.0.

I was surprised at how difficult the exam format can be, the practice exams I took were not representative. Would like to have done better, but I didn't know about JavaRanch.

Advice: Check out your test center ahead of time. I originally tried to take this exam in 2005 in the Raleigh/Durham area and the Prometric Test Center was beyond bad--three computers in a little glass fishbowl room near a busy front doorway! The noise of people coming and going was incredible. I asked for a refund that time and felt that I had been scammed. The test center for the one I recently passed it at (not in NC) was worlds better!
