don't know what you mean by "negative marking". But if i recall correctly, you either get the question right, or you get it wrong. no partial credit is ever given.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

It is a common practise at my Uni, its where when you get an answer wrong, marks are subtracted, so in theory you can come out with a negative score its designed to discourage guessing at multiply choice exams.

To the best of my knowledge the SCJP dos NOT use negative marking!

Gavin is correct!

If you have no idea - guess! You will not be penalized for guessing, the only points you get are positive points for a totally correct answer.

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

No. You can guess your answers. Your score will not be deducted for wrong answers
