I took Marcus Green's first exam today and it didn't resemble the real test (3 or 4 questions on graphics, didn't ask for certain amount of answers in multi-answer questions)
Do his 2nd or 3rd exams resemble the REAL test closer than the 1st??
Thanks.

Hi Eric,
No. Marcus wrote the three exams before the new exam model was introduced.
You'll find most of the mocks still relate to the old SCJP ie not SCJP2; however, they are still valuable tools as most of the concepts covered (except any emphasis on Applets and GridBagLayout) also apply to the new exam.
Hope that helps.

GridBagLayout is still covered, correct? Last time I checked it was!
Just making sure!

Hi Eric,
Yes, it's a Layout Manager, so you may see one or two questions related to it. The new exam places more emphasis on the behaviour of the various Layout Managers, especially when components are resized vs detailed questions on their parameters.
