Passed SCJP 1.5 - And some tips before taking the exam

I'm currently suffering from a terrible back pain... I wasn't able to get much sleep before my examination day because I was so nervous and afraid that I would fail. God on the other hand, was very forgiving and in spite all the sins I've done he still answered my prayers(during the exam) and I passed with a passing score of 79% (57 / 79). I'm so proud that I passed the exam, it was the fruit of my hard work. For those who are planning to take the exam I would recommend:

 

- Buying K & B Study guide for Java 5

- Examulator (Marcus Green's) simulator

- Eat a lot of peanuts(the one which has lots of proteins)

- Drink lots of water before your exam, be sure you don't drink too much that you'd have to pee all the time...

- Eat some meat, TAPSILOG did great for me. :)

- Get some sleep(I didn't, don't follow my example on this)

- Fix whatever issue you have to fix with your girlfriend (I was caught up in a fight and that added to my stress factor)
 

I really wanted to score higher, around 90%. Unfortunately I wasn't good enough to score that high. But I'm happy I passed.

The 1.5 exam I took only had 72. Though there were questions like  , literally, "how confident are you in working with threads?".
