I passed my exam today!

I prepared for 3 months with resources suggested by other lucky certificated developers in this forum.
I spent about 2-3 hours a day for books and tests. I took all chapter tests and after finishing the book - took mock exams.

I noticed that people from Wall Of Fame, who scored more then 90%, used Enthuware tests, so I used it too. And yes, they are really much harder then the real exam.
My average score in Enthuware is 85% and my exam score is 97%.

I booked date and time on VUE. You can make payment when booking. I am in Kyiv, so I choose FastLane as my testing center.
No paper is allowed during the exam, but you can use plastic board with markers and eraser.
I had 150 minutes and 70 questions. Finished in 2 hours with two incorrect answers.
I answered all the questions and then review them all. Some are just try to test your attention, so be careful!

    Hello Svitlana.
    Did you have any background in Java or other programming language before you started studying?

    I am asking because I am pretty new to programming and want to know if I should do the same as you did or take more time.
