Just a brief 'Thanks!' to the purveyors of the Ranch. Your Rules Roundup game got me into serious study mode a few weeks back (it scared the heck out of me! :-) and I've found numerous helpful hints on the site since then, as well. I passed the exam by a healthy margin this morning. The standard RHE and Jaworski books were crucial (didn't know about Jaworski in my pre-Ranch days!) Also found Carl Desborough's 'Certification Notes' insightful. (http://www.geocities.com/cdesboro/info/certification.html)
Great Site! Thanks much for everything!!

Congratulations! And yes, I agree with your opinion on Carl's notes.
For those interested in some related links, I have this.
Also, William Brogden's JAVA 2 EXAM CRAM book is recommended.

And as a further recommendation for Carl and his notes, I'd like to point out that he's the only one I know of to beat Tony's score. Yup, 100% (!). So definitely read what he has to say. And Carl, if you're out there, we miss ya...
(I assume that there may well be others in the history of the universe who have gotten 100% - but they haven't posted about it on any of the forums I frequent.)

Thank you all for the kind words and hello to Tony and Jim .. should have known you guys would still be around. I'm still in the US looking for work but the exchange rate on my certification grade isnt helping :P
Probably head back to Australia soonish if nothing happens here and spend a bit of time sharpening my java basics.
Cheers,
Carl.

Carl,
I feel sorry for you (and scary for us..), that despite the fact you scored 100% at the JAVA 2 test and your impressive backround (saw your Web page), you cannot find any job in the US.
You're mentionning you feel the need to rehearse you JAVA's basics.. with a 100% score?
My sympathy to those that 'only' reach 92-95%..
Will they have to justify this to US recruiters ?
