heeey Friends .. i should thank all the ranchers one by one .... this is more than a communty .. this forum is a CULTURE .. a good one .Thank you all
i passed the exam Today with 73% (i know it's not high but it's mine ) and this is my story :

java Experience before preparation : a semester .

the first month :
read the K&B book (thank you kathy sierra and MR BERT ... i mean this is a piece of art maaan )
after each chapter i do the self test (scoring around 30% )

2nd month :

for each chapter :
i read the summary + the 2 minutes drill >>>> AND i write my own summary ;

after that i re-took all the self test again : scoring (around 70 %) this time so i felt more confortable this time

after that i took the examlab diagnostic exam : scoring 31 % trust me i hated DEVAKA so much and even thinked about Quiting but i already bought the voucher so it's was like "do it or die" . i cheked all my wrong answers and correct my ideas .. i discouvered that i need to go through GENERICS again so i did

then i took the CERTPAL exam : scoring 56% .. and did the same thing (went throught my wrong answers)

i re-took the diagnostic Exam and it was 59 % (went throught my wrong answers)

took master exam A : i dont remember but it was around 40% i hated the small windows so didnt take B and C

took Examlab 1 : 43 %
took Examlab 2 : 46 %

and because i had a double retake voucher .. i took the risk and went today .. and IT WAS A 73 %


END OF STORY



my advices :
the K&B book : this book is a piece of art
EXAMLAB IS A MUST .. you simply gonna fail without it .. and the idea of "+30" is REAL !
Generics is the most difficult topic (at least for me ) so if you didn't get in the first time .. relax we all didnt
the API : ther is a list in one of my posts (i copied it from another thread in the ranch ) it's has all the classes/interfaces that you need to focus on


well that all I THANK EVERY ONE in the RANCH and i will stay here to enjoy our journey
