This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi all! I just bought a 310-025 exam book on sale, and after that discovered that a new exam, 310-035 had arrived. I'm wondering if there are any other differences between the two besides no IO, no AWT, Assertions and HashCode? For example: Is it possible to read about Declaration and Access control in a 310-025 book and still pass that part in the 310-035? TIA Johnny
Welcome to the JavaRanch Johnny! The 1.4 exam removes the AWT and IO topics but adds assertions and a couple new classes in the collections framework--LinkedHashMap and LinkedHashSet. The wrapper classes and hashcodes are further emphasized in 1.4. Everything that you need to know about assertions is available in the document Programming with Assertions. A lot of people passed the 1.4 exam before an updated study guide became available, so I'm sure that you can do the same [ March 03, 2003: Message edited by: Dan Chisholm ]
