i passed the exam today with 74% and would just like to say thankyou for the help javaranch gave me in getting this.
for anyone thinking of taking the exam, you should know that six months ago i had no programming experience in any language. from a cold start i used this site and the khalid mughal
book to get up to speed, writing plenty of practice code on the excellent textpad
text editor. in the last few weeks i used the jchq site, working through the revision notes - which are very good - and the practice exams - my first time marks on these were in the 80,s.
taking the exam i found plenty of questions on threads
so if you are going to take the exam make sure you are comfortable with these. i scored 100% on these subjects and did less well on some of the simpler stuff!
now that i have this under my belt i'm going to take the developer exam and get myself some work.
see you later,
and once again thanks,
