I have spent a number of years in the IT industry and have never bothered with any certification. I had learnt Java in the mid-90s and used it for some projects in the early days but my core expertise has been in RDBMS and BI. I stumbled on this wonderful site early in the year and was really struck by a sense of community and real passion for learning. So I decided to check out what I remember by sitting for the exam. The only section I scored 100% was in API. I guess it just shows an old pros intuitive grasp for what looks right.

Thank you for clarifying many points. This forum is such an important resource. Just yesterday I had doubt about two points and did a search on this forum. Lo and behold both those two things came up in the exam.

Thank you all for your well wishes.

For those of you who haven't passed the exam, my advice would be to have a clear strategy for drag and drop questions. Unfortunately I didn't. I didn't mark questions for attention either on the basis that I will have ample time to go through everything again. However I left a couple of D&D questions unanswered on first attempt. As D&D on re-visit clear out the original answer I had to redo all the D&D questions again. Which does eat away time from the real task of reviewing.

Congrats Rajeev.

I am going to sit for the exam in 14-15 days. Were there too many D&D questions.One
of my friends told me about 25% questions are D&D. Is it so
What about generics and Threads

Simran, I think 15% or so were D&D. They actually are very easy and are checking a clear understanding of a concept. Well, that can be said about most of the exam too. Generics and threads are obviously very important topics but the questions again are very simple but cannot be answered properly without a clear comprehension of the principles.

Good luck for your exam.
