hi guys I didn't have much time to report on my experiences with the exam itself. I will take this time to share my experience with the exam. I can't exactly remember the breakdown of all exams but here is some tips. 1. answer the questions u know for sure first and come back to the tricky ones later. 2. don't waste more than 1 minute on one question. if you can't figure out the answer after 1 minute then move on. 3. with respect to I/O classes, make sure you know that InputStream/OutputStream are abstract and thus can't be newed. 4. All Readers/Writer classes (i.e those classes which ends with either Reader/Writer) are character oriented classes and thus the only way to assign such byte oriented streams such as FileInputStream/FileOutputStream to character oriented streams is through the InputStreamReader/InputStreamWriter classes. 5. Take a look into how Garbage collection works especially where all references to an Object in an Array have been lost. 6. Collections API, you simply need to know which interfaces/classes store objects that are unique. which ones for ordered objects, which ones for key/value pairs. 7. String is immutable, so if I create String s1="Desmond"; what ever I do to s1, I will still get "Desmond" unless I null the reference. 8. you can't do + operations to StringBufferes!! I don't have much time to continue, but I will keep contributing to the forum. good luck those who are taking the exam. Cheers Tinyiko
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
