Hi,

After a mistake about the exam's day,
Yesterday i discovered that my session was scheduled today and not thursday like i thinking...

In all case, i had a short night ^^ and by chance it was sufficient ^^

My result is 90% that was not so bad...

For the little story, this morning (06:30 am), i done mock questions with cd training provided with my book (Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5). And the result was 64%.

For the SCJP 5.0 that was expected, the programm say "PASS" but i was aware about that was a FAIL for a SCJP 6.0 (65% required at least).

So, i wasn't very "smart" at the exam's session this afternoon after that ^^

I let this feedback (with a poor english) for recommands the Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 even if you plan to pass the Java 6 version.
This book is really well written and 95% up to date for the Java 6.

Just need to study NavigableSet,NavigableMap et Console by another way.

Another things, this book is a bit more hard than the exam and it's a REALLY good things, when you pass the exam all seems easy ^^

Best regards,
 
Marshal
