Hi my friends
I am going to take the SCJP1.4.
I had a copy of sun's mock exam for SCJP1.2 consisting of 200 different questions(bought for SCJP1.2).
I did these questions with the result of %90.
As they are for 1.2, can I trust this result and go for the real 1.4exam ?
I appreciate any respone as I am so nervous now.
Thank you so much

Best Regards,<br />Pourang Emami

If you scored a 90% on the 1.2 mock exam -- I think you're in excellent shape.
But before you take the 1.4 exam, I'd study assertions (that's the one topic that was added tot he exam). Also, you can forgot everything you learned about AWT & I/O 'cause you won't be tested on those.
Check out this information provided by Khalid and Rasmussen in order to prepare for the 1.4 exam if you are using their 1.2 book.
And also,Dan Chisholm's mock exams he's got lots of assertion - specific questions.
Good luck!

I agree with Jess,
Also Collections, equals(), ==, and hashCode were all expanded for 1.4 - give those topics a little extra study time.

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
