Hi!

I passed my exam today and scored 81%.
I prepared 2 months read K&B making notes and did 4/5 exam lab exams.
In the final exam lab exam I scored 61%.
The real exam is a lot less trickier than exam lab questions, as you can also see on my score.
I think collections and generics are very important for the exam.
As other also experienced I had no question on wait/notify nor on serialization.

Does anyone have a picture that shows what the new oracle certificates look like?

Congrats! I, too, am wondering what I should do now (other than start preparing for the next certificate). When you find out, let me know!

I Don't think I will start on the next certificate directly.. I honestly said need a little break ;)
Instead I will continue my private J2EE project. I'm sure I will learn a lot on JSP/Servlet during that and in some while I will then take the OCWCD exam.
Did I get it right, that the developer exam is far harder, because you have to hand in a coded program?

I'm not sure, but the thing about SCJD is, that you have to have good knowledge about a broad spectrum of Java frameworks. Honestly still need to make a decent project using stuff like RMI. I think I need a little more experience before I'll be confident in doing the SCJD. but OCWCD's a good bet, I might try SCEA as well, I'm not completely sure yet.
