I was trying to find and solve the mock exams for 1.4. I found Marcus mock exam 1 but it is not for 1.4. At javacertification.com I solved few questions designed for 1.4. Please can anyone let me where I can find mock exams for 1.4. (I solved Dan's topic wise questions).

I'm wondering, does the actual exam contain a lot questions with complicated code examples?
I personally find the questions with multiple nested calls to be frustrating when under time constraints, because you have to mentally step through the code, remember initialized variables, and in addition to that in the back of your mind you're trying to watch syntax and language correctness because sometimes if you see a compile error then there's your answer, and you don't have to step through the code.
I don't mind code examples, but a couple of the questions on that first link had some annoying questions, espeically when they name methods really funky names, like knavesmire(...)...what the heck.

hi Brian Joseph,
u will become accustomed to the code once u spend some time looking at samples. i was frustrated just like u in the begining too. it is important to mention however that,supposedly, the actual exam will not have any confusing or non-english modifiers (like u mentioned). and i bet even if it did, u will be 'expert enough' by that time provided that u would have done homework.
so dont worry about them,if u have just jumped in.
(i still have to take the exam, shortly)
best of luck.

I agree that the multiple nested calls are deeply frustrating, but the questions have been developed as a result of reading thousands (and I mean thousands) of messages from people who have taken the real exam and updated through feedback from many, many people who have tested them. They attempt to simulate the style and complexity of the real questions. I detest trying to solve those type of questions but similar questions really do come up on the real exam.
The peculiar method names tend to be from UK locations and are generally pronouncable (that's a silent K on that one, and it is the race track location in York UK). On the real exam you will probably get far more forgettable method names.

I agree with Marcus Green.Having recently taken the exam most of the questions are still fresh in my memory and believe me they resembled very close to those mock exam questions from Marcus.Funny actually because I cannot remember the names of those methods!
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
