Abhilash.equals (TOO_HARD) ??

Hi all,
First of all, thank you Abhilash for the mock paper, I can see a lot of hard work has gone into it.
Now, to my point. Does anyone think the Abhilash paper is a little too hard? Compared to:
javaranch rules roundup (got 2nd rating from top)
Marcus Green (got about 70%) (got about 90%).
it is, for me, MUCH MUCH more difficult. I got a terrible score, about 30%.
I also wondered about some questions being off syllabus e.g. questions about class loading, JVM execution and compilation.
thoughts anyone?

Javaranch is for warming up
Marcus green is the closest to the exam.
I Didn't use javaprepare nor Abhilash's.
How about Dan's?

yeah i'm gonna do dan chisholms after I finish the rest of Marcus' questions.
javaprepare was way too easy, i thought.
the javaranch rules roundup was a fun applet, although it worked like sh*t on my pc.
I agree. Here's the link:
