There is an error in question no 7 from master exam 3 i.e. the one we download from their site. The last options is

Tulip getType(){return new Tulip();

There is a missing } at the end of the statement.

What "Master Exam" is this? Who is "they" in "their site"?

This is the Master Exam that comes with the CD.

Byt "they" I meant the publishers of the book and their site whose link comes in the exam engine..

Now we know that the exam comes on a CD as part of an exam engine, but we still don't know who "they" are - do "they" have names?

They are Osborne, I downloaded the bonus master exam from Osborne's site, so the error is in the bonus exam that is downloaded from http://osborne.onlineexpert.com/elearning/ and added to the Learn Key Master Exam.

I just posted these errors because I thought that the people at Osborne and the authors of the K&B book might be interested in improving the learn key master exam. But it seems like I am being punished for this. So in this post I have not used the word their in this post.

Because everybody here knows what is Master Exam. If anyone says that this question is from Master Exam, no one asks him/her again

What "Master Exam" is this?


Then why am I being told to clarify everything.

Thanks for making this clear.
Because everybody here knows what is Master Exam.

I'm a moderator at this site, and I didn't know this. So I'd be careful to assume what "everybody knows".

I have too downloaded the Master Exam .... but the question numbers which you have given is not the same .... every time you give the exam the simulator randomizes the questions.... i try to find out the questions

Its not the sequence in which you receive the question. Whenever you get a question, you will be able to see a serial number of the question along with the question...

Hi Ankit, I think you are using a different version of the simulator ...in my case the CD which i got with K&B book contains master exam that doesn't show the serial numbers...it just randomizes the questions...

I believe there is only one Master Exam and that is by Learnkey
