I'll never understand why we get messages like this. Everybody studying for the exam should have their own copy of the objectives. Download the PDF formatted objectives from:
http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/java_progj2se.html
It is the link called the "Sucess Guide"

because even though APPLET is not mentioned explicitly in the objectives but many mock tests and practice tests have questions on them.
and then i have books that have "implicit" objectives.
so can i ask you if APPLET parameters would be implicit in the objectives.

I can empathize with you Marck. It's very frustrating, I've taken every JWhiz test and tomorrow I'll be taking my last JQ+ test and they always end up asking something that doesn't seem to supposedly be on the test. I really don't know why they do that. I'd rather get one more question about something that is definitely covered on the exam than an applet question thrown in there. Also when reading Mughal & Ramussen's book a lot of the stuff you seem to have to know comes from areas that are not in the Sun objectives, yet without studying it you can get in trouble. Like for example the whole paint() method and the Graphics class. For some reason I seem to always get a question on that, yet in most of the books I believe it's covered in areas that they say aren't part of the objectives.

Applet was on the previous version of SCJP and has been removed in the current exam version.
paint(), update() and the like are not used only in Applet code but whenever you have to do with a subclass of Component, so you have to know how they work...
