hello friends,
Finally after three months of slogging I managed to clear the exam.Though I wasaiming at 90+ , but just did some elementary silly mistakes ,scored 50/59.Now for all the JCP aspirants I would like to pen down a few experience of mine.
1)The day before the exam don't take any new mock-up.Leave it for revision,go through all the points which you have encountered till now.
2)Go through the JK/Marcus Tutorials.Try and analyze what mistakes you are doing in the mock-ups.
3)Believe me the questions are not very hard or ambiguous, but it requires you to think,so don,t expect a question which you may have encountered in your maock, means don,t memeorize the ans,rather than try to find out the concept and the reasoning.If you know your subject well you can clear it!!
4)As regards the reals exam, I finished it within 65-70 minutes,left around 4-5 unanswered,gave myself 30 minutes for revising each question very carefully.
5)Now one advice I would sincerely like to give ,while revision change the answer only if you think its 100%right and initialy you got the context wrong, b,coz the first answer which comes to your mind after going through the question is 90%correct.I lost probably two questions in revision.
5)Well as regards the exam it was not very hard,but to go through
the code snippets through the exhibit button and then relate the answer takes a lot of gery matter!!
6)I got 6/7 in threads(Synchronization code of 25-30 lines) 5/5 in I/O.(go through the connstructors)
7)util/Awt/Lang was comparatively easier to score
8)go through your operators precedence once before you enter!
9)Inner classes/Overriding/Overloading were o.k
10)Don't forget to have a good sleep the prevoius night so that you don't feel exhausted while sitting for 2 hrs as it takes a lot of concentration!!
well all the best!! Looking forward for the Developers exam
Well hope to get a job, need some suggestion from mahaanna,Ajith,Paul....
