Hi. well finally i passed the exam. Missed 1 question on Threads. Well i went to and tried to create a password by clicking on the first time users link. But it keeps giving errors. Is there a problem with their server. Plz help.
Some Tips:
K&B Book is the best. It's the only book u need.
for Mock exams don't waste too much time searching them. The following r the ones you should take:
1.K&B Master Exam. My score on this one was 98% at first go & 95% in K&B Bonus Master Exam. So ur real score wud be similar to that of K&B.
2.Dan's Exam r the best. I was consistently scoring 85-90% on his exams. Some questions were outside the objectives but it is a great learning experience reading his explanations and confidence booster if u do well in his exams.
3. Marcus Green's exams especially the one for 1.4 version. My score in this one was 95%.
4.Khalid Mughal's Mock Exam Engine. It is a very good resource to practice just before the exams. I scored 95% in it.
Well make sure that u know the basics inside out. the real exam is easier than the mock exams. The major focur was on testing the basics. the toughest questions were on Threads. So study them well.
Well here is how I approached the questions:
I read each line carefully taking into consideration each of the modifiers and data types. I made a mark about particular implications that the modifiers might have later on in the code. I finished the exam in about 90 mins. Then i went back to questions i have marked for review. after i was sure that i have selected the best answer. I then took a final pass through all the questions to ensure that I havn't made any silly mistakes. Clicked the end button just 2 mins before the completion time.
Well i wud especially like to thank Kathy & Bert for their excellent book & the people at javaranch who were so supportive. Their posts and replies really helped, especially those by Vad, Cathy, Marlene, Harwinder, geeta, sagrika, etc.

String[] j=new String[]{"Kathy","Bert", "Javaranch members"};
for(; {
for(int i=0;i<j.length;i++)
System.out.println("Thanx "+j[i]);

Mohit -
WOW!!! awesome, awesome score!
We're very glad the book helped, you better stick around the ranch and help answer some questions now that you're a certified guru!

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
