For those who have taken scjp 1.4

I'm taking Dan Chisholm's exams (recommended in the scjp FAQ) but I think that the questions are a bit harder than those in the Kathy Sierra's book...

Are those kind of questions taken in the real exam?

For instance:

1.Suppose that an interface, I1, is not a member of an enclosing class or interface. Which of the following modifiers can be applied to interface I1?

a. abstract
b. final
c. private
d. protected
e. public
2.Which of the following is a modifier that can be applied to an interface that is a member of a directly enclosing class or interface?

a. static
b. synchronized
c. transient
d. volatile
e. implements
f. None of the above.

The book does not mention anything about nested interfaces or interfaces as members of classes.

Yes, they are harder. If you look back a few years in this forum you will find Dan's own explanation as to why. Here it is from Dan himself.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
