I'll be taking the exam this friday. I was hoping if some of you folks that have already appeared in the exam could share some of your perspectives and experiences on the exam. I am trying to fill up holes in my prep and I'll be greatly appreciate if you folks could offer some pointers on that front. Feeling a bit uncertain about the test as I didn't come across any source that actually "mocks" the actual exam. Jaworski and simon Lee's site were good but I guess they are helpful in refreshing the subjects rather than providing an idea of about the "look and feel" of the questions appearing in the test.
As for my prep goes..
1. Read the Monson-Haefel book
2. UML - focussed on class relationships and multiplicity
3. Design patterns - GOF - Didnt get into the implementation details
4. legacy, I18n - John's notes
5. Protocols - Comfortable with them. Not too sure on JRMP though.
6. messaging -
7. SEcurity - looks a grey area to me at this point. I was not able to find any fine grained information on topics of signed jar files and trusted and untrusted code anywhere. The info sources I ran into were either too general or detailed.
8. Browsed thru sImon Lee's site and the JAvaRanch Forum.

Thanks in advance
Sridhar

Thanks for your words of encouragement folks. I think I may have to postpone the exam by one week as I have something else keeping me up .... Will update you on the outcome.
