Here is my 2 cents about the exam. I think the exam is very fair and for the most part worded very well. I had one question on my test that I felt was poorly worded. Ok, now for the breakdown Tools and Books I used ----------------------- JQPlus (must have, in my oppionion) Exam Cram Complete Java2 Certification Study Guide Many Online resources DEFINATELY JAVA RANCH !!! 600+ queue cards ----------------------- As for the test breakdown, I had 4 fill in's all about what xyz will print to the screen, 4 awt questions, 4 IO questions, 2 GC and the rest was a big smattering of the rest. I think that JQ+ is much harder then the actual exam, and if you can consistently get better then a 61% on it, your ready for the test. Do not be concerned about time, I finished in 1 hour and then I spent the 2nd hour reviewing my test. Also, if you not sure about an answer, don't change it, I know for certain that on reviewing my test I talked myself out of 2 correct answers. Oh well a pass is a pass! If anyone has any specific questions, feel free to fire away. [ March 27, 2002: Message edited by: Matt Ghiold ] [ March 27, 2002: Message edited by: Matt Ghiold ]

My test, I had no questions on Graphics, and a couple questions about components. Just know how they behave and you will do fine. For java.util know the interface heieracry and what each class falls into (implements). I would also know some of the more common methods. Don't be scared of the test, if you study you will do fine. Awt and Util are a very small portion of the test, at least on my version it was. :roll:
