Hi Everyone,

I came across a comment on an old Marcus Green mock exam answer explanation:
You may get questions in the exam that have no apparently correct answer. If you are absolutely sure this is the case, do not check any of the options.
This is quoted from the answer explanation of question # 8 on exam # 3 for ver 1.2, I believe. I plan on taking the 1.4 version of the exam very soon. Does anyone know if it is possible that there will be any questions that puposely don't have a correct answer listed as an option...that is, the correct answer is to not check anything?

Thank you very much in advance...Catherine

I can see this type of thing on a mock exam, but never on the real exam.

On the real exam, you will be told how many correct answers to select on all multiple choice questions. This number will never be zero.

It is very, very important when looking at mock exams that you consider what version of the exam the questions are aimed at. If it is not clear what version of the exam the questions are aimed the questions may well be misleading or lead to wasted effort. The exams referenced by Catherine at

Contain the following text at the beginning
This exam is based on the objectives of the JDK 1.2 exam.
You can see set of 60 questions for the JDK1.4 exam at JDK1.4 Exam

I believe my comment about questions with no correct answer was true for the 1.2 version of the exam. For later exams you are always told how many options to check.
