I got only 52% for HFSJ final Mock, those questions are very very difficult I hope real one won't be like that, anyway i'm going to take the exam on 9th sept, already registered, What you all recommend for me to do in these two weeks ahead PLS Advice me immediately I have done jdiscuss mocks I got a good average there about 72% also i have completed j2eecertificate.com mocks as well Help me guys
My suggestion in the last two weeks. go back to the exam and list all the areas that you got wrong, for example EL implicit objects, JSP Tags, etc and then just make notes of the key points in those areas. Then when ever you have a minute or two, say on the bus/train/car (not whilst you are driving) just read through the list, and memorise it.
Most people find that the real exam is easier than the exam at the end of HFSJ, which I am guessing is the exam you said you got 52% on. infact most people get between 10% and 20% more for the real exam than they did for the HFSJ exam, I did and there are lots of other comments reflecting the same sentiment. So all you really need to do is strengthen up the areas you are lacking a bit and you will pass.
Having said all that passing the exam is only the first step. I would then encourage you STRONGLY to take the areas you are weak in and spend more time mastering theose areas. Create lots of examples, think of things to do that will test an area you are not sure about, come up woth a plan and what you think will happen, then build it to see if you are right, if you are fantastic, move on, if you are not make sure you know why before repeating the process.
You can do it. Two weeks is a long time to memorise a small amount of information, that will takle you from 52% in HFSJ to 64% in the real exam.
Flash cards are a good study tool for the last couple of weeks... get some 3 x 5 cards, and write questions on one side and the answers on the other... shuffle 'em up and quiz yourself - when you've got those down cold, make up a second batch!
The other thing to do is to try your hand at answering questions right here on this very forum... there's something about having to write an answer that really shows you where your understanding is a little weak...

Agreed answering questions on this forum and others here at the Ranch is a very good way to test if you know things thoroughly.
