Fellow ranchers,
As C-Day(Certification Day) approaches I'm just trying to make sure I avoid all of the pitfalls of dumb mistakes on the exam. I've noticed on some of the mock exams I'll make between 3-6 dumb mistakes. Which could make the difference between being a SCJP or a sad attempted SCJP.
I define a dumb mistakes as errors that are made even though you know the correct answer but are done in haste.
So does anyone have any advice?
Also I've noticed that I seen to do better with code based questions as opposed to theorical. Has anyone else noticed this?
Any advice to help me contain my nerviousness?
