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??
Hi all !!! Can somebody tell me please ,if I practice Dan�s single topics exams and Marcus Green mock exams many time , will I take the risk to memorize the exercises rather than learn them ? regards , Victor

Hi all, I raised a question ....and so is victor now...but i can't get an answer...Also my other question about the Dan's mock exams..how far r they useful for 1.2 not 1.4??
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.
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.

My exam contains nearly 600 questions. Even I have not memorized them all.
