Passed 031-083 with 94%. Before taking the exam, I did the mock exam in HSFJS 2nd version and got 65-70%. Basically the real exam is easier than most mock exams. However, do read questions carefully. Some questions are tricky and easier to ignore some restrictions applied.
I am one of the moderators of the JavaRanch forums. Here on JavaRanch, we have a naming policy. We want the users of JavaRanch to use a real-sounding name as their display name.
Unfortunately, your name "Strait Bering" does not comply to the naming policy. Your display name should consist of a real-sounding first name, space, and a second name. Not only a first name, no obviously fake nickname, no initials only for the second name.
Please read the naming policy carefully and change your display name. You can change your name by editing your profile.
Please note that we are taking the naming policy seriously. If you do not change your display name, your account on JavaRanch might be locked.
