I am almost ready to take the scjp test...i have done most of the mock exams..Now when i'm doing them again i'm getting very good score in them...I wonder if people who r going to take the exam do the same thing or not? or do they do a fresh new mock exam to assess themselves before taking a real exam??

My exams work best when they are used as a workbook. My exams tend to be more difficult than the real exam, so your score on the real exam will most likely be higher than your score on my exam.

The Marcus Green exams are more like the real exam. Most people like to save those for last.

I try to include explanations for the answers to my questions so my hope is that users will learn the concepts rather than the questions.

Greetings from Hogwarts,

Bros, my arguable rule of thumb: Don't take the same exam more than twice, or u will risk memorizing the answers and identifying them even before you are halfway thru reading the q. This is very dangerous since if u recognize the same line of questioning in the real exam and without really reading carefully, start taking an approach for the answer based on "past memories", you will land yourself into trouble...

The difference between 1.2 and 1.4 is as follows.

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 the Object.hashCode and Object.equals methods are further emphasized in 1.4.

Everything that you need to know about assertions is available in the document Programming with Assertions.

For more information on the 1.4 exam, please see the objectives.

My exams do not cover AWT and IO, but they do a good job of covering the topics that are common between the 1.2 and 1.4 versions.

My exams do cover assertions and the new classes of the collections framework. Since my exams are organized by topic, you can skip the topics that are not applicable to the 1.2 version of the exam.
