Phew, the ordeal is over! Thanks everyone for helping me out with my numerous questions, I really appreciate it.

As for the test, I found that time was a big issue (had to rush the last 10). There were no drag-and-drop questions, and the new strikethrough function to eliminate possible answers is great.

My very first question was a hairy inner-class one that sort of scared me... but the others weren't as complex. Although they weren't easy either, you need to be very sure of the basics as there is always a "compilation fails" or "runtime exception" that could catch you.

All in all, it was very close to the questions that Oracle sent me before the test. I got 90% on those, and 91% on the real exam. Looks exactly the same too, so I would recommend going through them to get a realistic assessment of whether you are ready or not.

Thanks again for all your help, this forum is awesome

Thanks a lot, everybody Now I just need a job...

Muneeswaran, you get a voucher from PearsonVue e-mailed to you a few days after you book the exam. Another good mock that I found very similar to the real exam was K&B's book, but knowing how many correct answers to tick. Yeah, I was naughty, I went through the whole book and wrote down the number of correct answers for each question. Then I did the mocks as if they were the real thing. I found that, doing it like that, the level of the questions was very similar to the real exam.

Ikpefua, you helped me so much, mate, thank you. I even thought of you when I was doing the exam, there was a question about static members being inherited... just as well we went through that on the forum a few days before!
