Are those questions really in the exam

This is a question I got from uCertify

It's actually one of those true and false.

Assertions are disabled at Runtime. (True or False)

This is ambiguous. Saying that assertions are disabled at Runtime by DEFAULT is a different matter.

A thread can never block another thread (True of False)

What about when a thread tries to call an object that is locked by another thread, isn't that blocking since the thread will head to the waiting pool once it sees that another thread locked the object?


This is not the only question I've seen. I've seen many similar to this one I'm not sure how one solves them.

Hey Ali,

On the real exam the questions are worded much more carefully. It's probably best to try out mock exams from a couple of different sources to get the feeling of the questions, because any single source could mislead you.

hth,

Bert
