Hi Folks,
now it is up to me to resume the test. First I wanna thank all people, who are responsible for this wonderful side. It is really great.
In my opinion the test was very taff, cause the first 10 questions I got were the hardest I have ever seen. Note I have made 15 mock exams, in which I scored always at 90% (not Khalid of course (scored 73%)). But then, the questions were more easier, some only basics, the other only a little bit difficult. The last 5 questions were hard too. Therfore, after answering all questions, I had 15, which I don't know, if they are correct or note. Not very funny, but nevertheless I made it.
OK, now a little bit more detailed.
I got
2 questions of Collections, only basics,
4 on AWT( 2 GridBagLayout, very hard!!)
2 on GC, 1 easy, 1 taff
4 on threads, (2 of them were vere bad phrased)
4 on IO, (two of them concerning the suspicius socket
question 2 very hard, 2 easy)
1 on package (very easy)
4 flow control (one taff, 3 easy)
rest Fundamentals, Overriding, Operator assignment ...
Ok, that was it. Lot's of luck for all you.

Congrats Thomas.
Please tell us whether these socket questions were testing
about streams concepts or they were about networking.

Both socket questions were on streams only. Hope it releases you
