I have to thank everyone who established JavaRanch.com. The Roundup helped A LOT, as well as this board (even though I mostly lurked). If I can give some pointers to those who are studying: 1) KNOW your Java I/O. Streams, constructors, encoding. I mean KNOW IT. 2) KNOW everything about anonymous inner classes and inner classes in general. Way too many questions on anonymous inner classes in my opinion. I have yet to even use them in the real world... yet. 3) Threading. Sheesh... Lots of threading. 4) Take the Marcus Green exams. Phenominal. 5) Listen to Trance music while studying. Chicane and Armin Van Buuren come to mind. That really made it sink in...I think. Good luck to everyone else! -GrantZ
CONGRATULATIONS Grant! Thanks for the feedback. I will be writing soon. Wish you well Percy

Congrats Grant!!! u have said in ur experience that one should be very thorough with I/O topic in java.Do u mean all the methods of various streams/readers/writers classes?Or doing their constructors & heirarchies is sufficient? rajashree.
