First, get plenty of sleep and don't work too hard the day before.
There is a whole science to how to eat for good brain function, but I think it helped me a great deal (I finished the test in 55 minutes with a score of 97%). I ate no carbohydrates for three days before the exam. About three hours before the exam I ate eggs and sausage. About 20 minutes before the exam I ate some nuts and about eight dried apricots. Dried apricots have a very low glycemic index and the nuts makes it even lower.
I'm not sure if this recipe will work for you, but I think it helped me a great deal.
Well, that and studying.

Hmmm... I'll settle for a "Two-Egg breakfast with Meat (Bacon)" at Denny's that morning!

Shree:
If you are ready for the exam, I guess you already took this:
The Hardest Questions Simulation
I just took it and failed only one of the 19 questions, for not reading carefully!
How did you do?

But the brain requires carbohydrate for optimal performance. Too much carbohydrate, and you have a hypoglycemic effect causing drowsiness. The brain runs on really low power, so you have to get the rest of your system to not run on carbohydrate (which doesn't need it), and then put in a real slow feed of carbohydrate. Hence, the apricots and the nuts.

Guys,
What I wanted was some guidance on what to read, like any last minute crams? Should I prepare some notes, or should I just solve the mocks over and over again?

I made notes on stuff I kept forgetting and I would re-read about that stuff in different references.
I would re-take mock exams.

Hi Shree,
You seems to mistake me for Sridevi. I am Vamsi. Your suggestion is OK. I will try to keep your all the links in Java Ranch in the nearest possible time. Thank you for your suggestion.
