Today I passed the exam with 84%!

I would like to thank to all of the ranchers - this forum was a great knowledgebase for me. I appreciate the help and time everyone invest in helping those of use who are still learning.

I started reading KS & BB SCJP 5.0 book on april this year. But it was only 3 weeks ago that I decided I have to finish this now. So that's about the time I started to learn quite extensively. You can imagine I was sorry I didn't learn more before. So these three weeks were quite tense. Besides my full-time job there was only SCJP in my life. Everything else was on hold.

My appartment looks like mess and I'm lucky enough my boyfriend supports me and did at least the urgent matters around the house and constantly prepared green tea for me when I was to sleepy to learn anymore.

I would also like to thank to Devaka - his simulator was of great help for me. I made his final exam yesterday and passed with 66%, so that was quite a relief as you can imagine. This was actually a reason I went to bed early yesterday (and I read KS & BB pointers at the beginning of the book again - it proposed the same thing) and had 9 hours of quality sleep.
I actually had 2 completely identical questions on today's exam and some very similar ones to Devaka's questions.

The first thing I'm gonna do now is buy a drink to everyone around me. Then I will watch at least three StarTreks in a row, uninterruptingly.

Thanks again, everyone :-)! Keep up the good work.

Hi Lidija,

Congrats on your result.

However, I cannot agree with the following sentence:

There may be some similar questions in my simulator, but there can never be completely identical questions, which violates the Sun copyright laws. Because I didn't use 'any' resource for my questions.

@Lidija,
Congratulations for your good score

@Devaka,
Devaka you are correct here. As I got with my scjp exam, there were some similar type questions on the exam, but not exact questions. You are not violating copyrights. Your simulator is great, actually.

No, it is true. I had an identical question:

printf("%s, %b", Math.E, Math.PI);

On both the ExamLab and the exam itself. Only difference was that on the exam it was a drag and drop, while on ExamLab it was a multiple choice.

Well, actually I don't remember that why and how did I made this question exactly. However, while this seems as a common statement for some questions, I think it is possible to had a question like this on the Sun exam too. :roll: But I don't know exactly.
