Everyone should prepare for this exam seriously. It is a tough one.
I scheduled the exam about one month ago, but I reschedule it several times due to my work.
After a short nap of this Monday night, I woke up at about 9pm. I found I can't remember when I am going to take the test. I though if the date was too close, I had to reschedule it again...
I logged in the account and found the exam is at 7pm on Tuesday, which was less than 24 hours. I can't schedule it anymore.
What's more, I didn't touch the material for nearly two weeks and I only finished 3 of the Enthuware tests. I though I was going to waste my money. I even planned to abandon the test.

Then I began to review the test and continued to review it during my work at company next day. Luckily, I passed the exam with only few points higher than the pass line. I was really sleepy during the exam
even I drunk a bottle of red bull.

Based on the final score report, I still did't get a good score in threading&concurrency, string format, some subtopics of NIO, streams, exception...They are all low scores parts in my Enthuware tests.
For threading&concurrency, I think we should write small complex programs as many as possible to enhance our understanding.
In a short, the real exam is very similar to Enthuware tests in terms of difficulty, question types. In order to pass the exam, we should get at least 70 in the Enthuware tests. I only got about 60 in the mock tests.
