I passed Java2 exam today with a score of 89%. As a two-week visitor of JavaRanch, I want to express my appreciation about this site. Although I only posted two questions on this site, I spent time reading some questions and enjoying answering some of them. I spent less than 3 weeks to prepare this test. I did not feel that I was very ready before the test because I have not gone through many mock exams. But my work experience helps me to solve questions of certain areas on which I have not spent enough time. Actually each time when I did a mock test, I did very fast (about 50 mins), I just want to test what I really know and see what is worst situation I could get). I focused my effort on concepts; it is always good to know what you really know and what you don't know. I will continue visiting this site and read the posted questions. Good questions enlighten you a lot.
