Hello Everyone

This certification took 2 months of studying with a full time job.
I want to thank my mom and grandmother for taking care of the home so that I could spend every moment of free time studying.
Also Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff for writing a great book.

I studied from the OCP book and referred the Java docs. Apart from that I wrote a lot of code and make a great deal of flash cards.
I gave the online mock tests on the SYBEX website that you can access if you buy Jeanne's and Scott's book.

My advice would be focus on the details of the API. The question were very tricky. I ran out of time in the end and was only able to check 2/3 of the answers.

Best of luck to anyone planning to give this test.

Congrats! That's a great score! If you haven't already, can you post a review on Amazon (or wherever you bought the book from)?

I posted the review. I bought the book from the Indian version of amazon.com
It might take a day or two for the review to be displayed on the page since they are saying that "We're currently processing your review. "

Thanks! Yes, there is some lag. That's why I like to say "if you haven't already" rather than assuming whether someone has posted or not!
