hi all,

i prepared Collections according to exam objectives.

ie., choosing an appropriate collection for the given requirement.

but i saw questions from some mock exams which includes some of the functions of collection class.

my doubt is "shall we need to study collections api also or is it enough what i studied according to objectives?"

please suggest me..

If your aim is only certificate, then study only according to objectives.

If your aim is deep understanding of collections, then **** objectives and learn what you are week in ;-)

I think it depends on the exam version.
AFAIR in 1.4 I didn't have to know api of collections, but as for 1.5/5.0 you should know methods from the API (at least, that's my impression from K&B book)
