Aashu,
i definitely had problems with drag and drop. If you choose to review an older answer, the system will lose the old value. It warns you though about it.
Now about the difficulty, the very first question was a really tricky
thread question, on which i spent 5 minutes and answered it wrong.
My inner forces were under a stress, later i caught up, but the stress did not go away before question 20 or so. Fortunately i went back and corrected it later.

Hama i studied the Bates & Sierra book twice in a span of two months. I did the cdrom learnkey exams and the five examlab exams. I have 11 years of java experience, but this does not help so much. It helps read and study faster though.

All the Best and i think too that serialization and wait(), notify() removed from the exam. IS IT TRUE??

@Achilleas Achix

Did you face any question from serialization and wait(), notify()??
and Did you remeber how many question are from Coupling & Cohesion.

Thanks

p3 - 57% is a high score, in p3 i scored a struggling 62%, if you do the examlab final with over 60% you are ready to go.

THANK YOU BROTHER!!!

fact is that for the first 5-10 minutes i was having one of the worse nightmares, cold sweat and the brain stopped working, time slipping away and the questions left unanswered.
My advice is to keep the thing rolling, find a rythme and follow it, or let it follow you. A big advice is to LEARN how to skip difficult questions, they might not be so difficult after all.
One of the drag and drop was so easy, that i really had misunderstood it, and i was struggling with it over 10 minutes. This and the difficult concurrency question (which WAS THE VERY FIRST IN THE EXAM, question No1 ) consumed more than 15 minutes by themselves.

Ikpefua, you are a BIG soul. Anytime you need anything, just drop a line.

Then just do ExamLab and Enthuware. (IMO Examlab is more than enough)

The FUTURE is NOW, try SpringFramework, Wicket, Hibernate etc. Most of JEE Apps are now rewritten to SF due to performance issue and complexity, SpringFramework is the way to go...

I've developed couple apps in SpringFramework and Hibernate utilized POJO(Plain Old Java Object), MVC, and they are awesome in terms of simplicity and performance...

Congrats man! I am scheduling mine for the end of June...I am getting worried now...
By the way, are the practice questions/exams from K&B book more difficult, equally or less difficult than the real exam?
Thanks man!

No need to worry!
The key point is to write many programs, (i wrote 145 of them), but not just write them and run them. NO!, you must document every conclusion that your programs lead you to do, on paper! (or file!) You must do it in a systematic way. Don't get fooled that the book has it all. No. The book is brilliant, its style is awesome, i like it very much, but yet you need to keep your own notes.

PS
Are you from Russia/Bulgaria?
