I am working with jq+, and there are many questions concerning daemon threads as well as use of join(). These topics are absent from all of my other study materials (Syngress, Exam Cram)...any idea if these items are on the actual exam?

daemon threads and join are covered on the exam, probably not in as much depth as JQ+ would indicate, but they are there nevertheless.

Good to know...I thought they would open up a big can of worms, but I've been practicing with them more today and they don't seem as confusing as I thought...
Thanks for the feedback!
