5> For security i have used the Secuirty chapter from mark cades book which is present on java-architect yahoo group .I found those notes very very good.
I also did free mock exams available on the net:
there are 6 mocks
I think all of this preparation is enogh for the exam.The exam is quite easy if you read the questions carefully.
Also i want to thank all the people in this forum because one of the most amazing thing about this forum i found is that when ever i used to post the question at anytime i would not have to wait for more than half hour for answers.
Every time i have posted the question i got the answer with in half hour this is realy amazing once again thank you all.
