Hello friends.
While going through RHE(Robert Heller) book, he clearly mentioned that only flowlayout, borderLayout, ang GridLayout in syllabus. But in lot of exam i faced problems on GridBaglayout.
So do we have GridBaglayout and cardLayout in Syllabus?
Please reply....

Take a look at page 284 in RHE. It states that Flow, Grid, Border, and GridBag layouts are required for the exam. Card is not. GridBag is covered in the developer's section in Chapter 18. From what I have seen there is usually 1 or 2 questions on GridBag on the exam.

As far as I can tell, I don't believe anyone that has taken the new exam, has mentioned that they got any questions on gridbag or card layouts. I did not get any either. I took the exam last week.
Good luck!
