Just to note: current latest architect certification is based on Java EE 6 version, not Java EE 7.

Best regards,

It's great to hear from one of the legendary Java Ranchers! Thanks Mikalai!!!

Were you doing work with another language for a while?

Well, it's still Java but the technologies are quite old. Felt like i was stuck in quicksand. Just lost the "Passion/Enthusiasm" before. Right now,
I realized it is my Mission to become a great Architect. Feels like a ray of sunshine from Heaven.

It feels great to be back at Java Ranch. The feeling is like going back to a long lost sweet heart. One day i woke up then i felt this
burning love for the Java Language again. I never realized how long i deviated from the true path of the Jedi. Know i feel the force
flowing me through me intensely. Unfortunately, like all those who went a stray i have to work my way up again starting with Java 7
certification. This time, i will work it up to the Architect Level. God bless and may the Force/Flow be with you!!!

Don't worry to much about that mock exam, add 40 points to your score. Focus on the mistakes you made which is really helpfull before you take the exam.
I think these people passed because they prepared hard
enough. To tell you the truth I had a difficult time
with the exam.

What's your score by the way to post something like that?
Why won't you put your real name?

Hi guys,

I managed to pass scjp 5.0. Got only 93% but I managed to get
90% on generics, got 87% on concurency;unfortunately, I
received a critical hit on fundamentals, and flow control
what a life! Anyway, I'm quite happy i passed.

Thanks so much to all the wonderfull people here for the support
and Bert Bates and Kathy Sierra for their wonderfull book.

God bless to everyone!

Man, I just got 45% in Master Exam. What a life. Am I doomed? Some people tell me that I should be getting at least 80% on it. Is this bad? I'm totally wasted. Is going for the exam at this point a good idea or
should i cancel again and decide to try later? Please be kind and help.

I scheduled my Exam this coming Saturday. I studied very
hard but there are so many stuff to remember I'm consistently
scoring 59% on all the mock exams. I really feel overwhelmed.
I'll just pray hard. I'll just keep my heart strong.

I guess there's no turning back. I've had enough, 3 months of
sheer torture. Tell you my results this coming Monday. Hope I pass.

I can think one of though I haven't read it: Don't say Yes when you want to say No

I was thinking this way before whenever i lose a debate
with my boss over a new requirement. Later, when I checked his
background I found out he was a VP before so this guy must have
lots of training of how to be a jackass. So, I guess bosses are good
examples to observe.

You might try assembly language. You can use to it program any
electronic device you invent then try to make a robot.
