hi guys,
i gave my exam today morning,managed to get 83%.
i am o.k with it, although not too happy.
thanks to javaranch.i have been participating
in it for the last one advise is
that you should write down lots of code and
work out, then you won't get confused in the
exam.the questions that i got in io,util,awt
were mostly theoritical.the rest small snippets
of code not more than 15 careful about
how you read the question.

thanx everyone

I think that asking for questions from the exam is pretty bold. Since it is copyrighted material, the lawyers from Sun might think that you are attempting to put together a cheat sheet. Not to mention that I think it would be within their rights to not let you take the exam.
Plus, anyone that gives out such information will just make it so that your having passed will be less valueable as the cheat sheets find their way around. And I beleive if you get caught giving out anything resembling the real questions you can get in legal trouble.
I wouldn't be suprised if Sun came here and posed as "I just passed" to see who they could catch. And I wouldn't be suprised if sun went to everybody who said "I just passed" and tried to ask for a brain dump. How else will Sun ensure that the exam remains valid?
I think asking "was there a lot on threads?" is a valid question. But asking for specific questions is wrong.

Hi! Prasanthi,
big congraaaats. Yes I completely agree with Paul regarding the questions that some people r asking out here. It will be a great error if anybody gives or tells the real exam questions as it may reduce the certification value.

I agree with Paul too, Just mugging the questions and answers won't help. Just questions and answers won't help in real world.
So play it fair.
I agree. Here's the link:
