Aloha!
I passed the exam today with 80%. But the score was graded for 82 questions!? Well, there were some stupid questions where the correct answer was not given at all! Imagine, you definitely know the given code results in compiler error and still you can't find that in choices! I spent lot of time figuring out the correct answer from the given wrong answers!! There were few questions out of syllabus(java.io.Console - is this in syllabus?) I think I don't need to mention the book that I used for preparation. You all know it, don't you? Well, thanks a lot to Kathy and Bert for their wonderful book. Its a unique piece. Thanks to all for your best wishes.

What are the sections, if so?

Hello all!
Thanks for the wishes!

Mary,
did you get a score on each section separately.
Yup, in my report which was given after I finished the exam.
What are the sections, if so?
There are totally 7 sections. By the way, you've got the objectives with you right? You can find all the sections in them.
which is generally the toughest section?
Hmm..Concurrency! Though the questions don't appear that tough, after looking my %age in that section I came to know that its toughest part of the exam. I got 50% in it.
I am taking the exam on October end.
Have read Kathy and Bert book twice..but still not confident//
If you don't feel confident don't take the exam. Confidence really plays an important role. Why don't you try some mock tests? Did you check yourself that you remember all the key points from the book? Are you sure, you are 100% perfect with all the self-tests from the KB book? Those were the vital points before you go to exam. Good luck!
