I passed!!! I would have liked a higher score but I will take it. My thanks to the excellent Sierra/Bates book, JavaRanch friends, and Enthuware. I found that the book was very accurate about what would/wouldn't be on the test. It does help to get as many examples of test questions from different sources. My advice matches the book's: give yourself plenty of time (I have a full time job and have been studying for months), take the practice exams, and write your own code. One warning: the Prometric test still has bugs. The drag and drop feature is very touchy. I wasted a lot of time trying to drag some code to a box and it wouldn't stick!! I thought it was telling me I had selected an invalid choice but in reality, it just wouldn't stick. Finally, after about 20 attempts, it stuck. I would recommend skipping all of the drap and drop problems and do them last. Excelsior
