Hi, I have gone thru many free mock exams online and I found out that I am weak at questions that requires memorization such as ComponentEvent are the superclass of ContainerEvent, FocusEvent, etc., HashMap is the subclass of AbstractMap.... I do not have much experience working with Java so I am not familiar with the class architecture. Can anyone tell me if there is a lot of questions like that so I better memorize the architecture? Thank you.
hi susie, can u pls give me that list of url where u took free mock exams?
please use the [code][/code] tags when showing code. visit <a href="http://saloon.javaranch.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=ubb_code_page" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://saloon.javaranch.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=ubb_code_page</a> ,for more details
Hi Susie, There are not alot of questions that require pure memorization. Most of the class heirarchies you do need to be familiar with aren't too bad. For instance, the Collection classes, the name of the class usually tells you where it falls ie HashMap from AbstractMap, HashSet from AbstractSet and in I/O FileReader from InputStreamReader, FileWriter from InputStreamWriter. Try to get the top classes in the heirarchy straight and then based on the names you can usually work out which class a specific one extends. Hope that helps. ------------------ Jane Griscti Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform
