Writing test troubles

I am currently learning java online. After working through the module,doing the exercises and submitting my assignments( I have made 100% on all)I cant seem to pass the module test.If you fail the test the answers are only viewable at that time so you cannot go back and concentrate on problem areas. The straight answer questions I have no problems with, it seems to be with the code questions.Time seems to be my biggest enemy as I feel very rushed to do the test.(20 questions in 20 minutes). Are there any tips that will help me read and comprehend the code questions quicker?

The only way to read code faster is to read lots of it. Practice, practice, practice. One idea is to hang out here. Lots of people post code. Try to figure out what their code is doing and why. Read code in books, read code on the web, read code that you've written yourself. Try different variations of your coding exercizes and see what happens.

Soon you'll find that you can just whiz through the code in the exam.

I suggest not just reading lots of code, but writing lots of code as well. To an extent, the more programs you write, the better you get at it.
