Thankyou

Hi ketki

Don't be disappointed. We know you were working hard as there were so many postings from you for clarifying doubts. We are there with you. I am sure you will do well next time. Do you know what are the weak areas for you? Did you refer K&B book completely and also revised it? I guess all the topics are covered well. Sometimes we do not get the topic by reading it once. For me since I don't have real development experience in Java, I have to go through it twice or thrice to understand it completely.

Take some break and then prepare again. Good Luck

Regards
Padma

I would advise to take some time off and regroup mentally.
Things will be better then.

Since you already went through the book and mocks, this time will be easier. spend some extra time with any section(s) you dont very confident on. retake mock exams resolve more questions it will reinforce your knowledge, and good luck
