It's a celebration!

Somebody call Rick James!

ucertify.com practice questions are too easy. K&B questions are too hard. LearnKey MasterExam is about right.

nice man! how long did you study for just out of curiousity? I'm on week 2 myself, but I only ask because you seemed to know what you were talking about in some of our forum discussions and wanted to gauge my test taking around how long you took hah

I bet I spent around 50 hours over three weeks. ~2 hours for each chapter in the K&B book including questions and the rest on practice exams, reading online materials, coding questions, and posting in forums.

The best thing I did was plan 2 hours for 40-50 practice questions and make sure I understood everything about the question including coding it if necessary. On a test like this, every wrong answer is testing a very specific erroneous thought process and you know you're good when you can say exactly why each answer is wrong.

I missed questions in the varargs/widening/boxing objectives so make sure to look at the "5 golden rules" thread around here.
