I am curious about the level of difficulty of questions at the end of each chapter. I am scoring around 55-60% after going through a chapter.

Are the questions a little tougher than the actual test or more or less this is what i can expect in the actual test??

Hi Kishore,

(You have to have a little patience - remember, we're all volunteers )

Anyway, it seems that for our SCJP 1.4 book most people get about the same score on the real exam. I'd say if you're getting 55-60% you're cutting it prertty close, personally I'd recommend a little more study. (This is different than the SCWCD book - in that case people tend to do much better on the real SCWCD exam.)



p.s. Most people find that threads, inner classes, and GC are the hardest topics - you might want to focus on those areas.

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

I agree. Here's the link:
