Hi all,

A very tough exam today. I didn't think I would pass due to the tough questions that were presented but turned out I did quite well with 80%. I've gone straight to the pub. Thanks for all your help.

A note for people studying this exam:
* Buy and read the Sybex book, this was a bible with my studies. It explained things clearly and really helped with some tricky subjects.
* After you've done the Sybex tests (including online) download the OCA Java app. Note they're very similar to the Sybex questions but they help nonetheless.
* Download and purchase the Enthuware exams. I first looked at them and closed the program because they looked alien to me. But with persistence, they become a useful tool in answering the questions.
* The exam features a lot of questions asking you to identify which lines don't compile. Make sure you know what and what doesn't compile.

Good luck to anyone who goes for it!
