Hi fellows! Today I passed my exam with the SURPRISING/INCREDIBLE/KILLER score of............. 95%!

Random notes:
1. At the exam I got a lot of questions on collections, generics and threads, not impossible, but a lot. Also, inner classes (in various flavours) were almost everywhere.
2. K&B book is divine. It *is* the way!!
3. Commercial Sun's mock tests are similar to exam's question (in the style).
4. I think it's impossible to be 100% exam-ready, but if you feel you are postposing a bit too much... go and schedule your date to prometric, anyway.
5. Leave corner case out (ie, don't spend too much time on JLS), rather focus on the concepts and syntax... the thing I have realized is that there will always be *a lot* of uncovered ground, anyway.

Thanks to all the old and young ranchers, see you soon!
