I just uploaded the latest version of my thread exam. It is in the beta directory and is only accessible using the following URL.
This latest version has 41 questions. The four new questions are numbered 37 through 41.
This thread exam is not yet complete and a lot more material will be added. I have made it available at this time because I hope to get some feedback before I merge it in with the rest of my exam.
All feedback is welcome.
Thank you in advance.

I have not yet received a lot of feedback on the threads exam, but what I have received suggests that my exam does contain some difficult thread questions.
I have made an effort to build a mock exam with questions that contain working programs rather than small code fragments. The working programs are helpful because users can compile and run the programs to get a better understanding of how they work. Unfortunately, working programs on the thread topic tend to be very long and therefore more difficult than some other types of questions.
I encourage people to use my exams early in the study process so that my exams can be used as a learning tool. At that early stage of the exam preparation process you really don't need to worry about your score on the first attempt at one of my exams. Just keep working at the exam until you understand the material.
I agree. Here's the link:
