Does the exam also focuses on to predict "unreachable codes"?

Hello friend,
In SCJP 1.4, there won't be any question regarding unreachable code. I am not sure about the SCJP 5.0 exam.
I finished the 1.4 exam last month and there were no questions on that. Further, i took some mock exams and didn't find any questions on unreachable code.

I would not be so sure. Just because one candidate gets no question a topic, does not mean every candidate gets no such question.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
