Hi,

Could anyone please tell me what's the percentage of theoritical questions asked in SCJP exam. I have studied Head First Java before, so I am not new to java. I have recently started studying K&B study guide, and after studying first chaper I realized its more of memorizing stuff other than coding. Am I right?

Thanks!


Regards,

I do not believe your characterisation of the exam is correct. This exam is highly theoretical, you have to understand the language's runtime behaviour quite well.

I have taken many cert exams and this is the least rote memorisation one there is and the most theoretical.

You are too early into the book to come to that conclusion. You might encounter 5 theory questions in the exam.
