Hi Robert,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Here at the Ranch, we love to help people learn about Java, so you've come to the right place. We don't like to give out answers to homework problems, though. Instead, we'd like to help you learn how to solve the problems yourself.

This is a list of Java beginner's resources compiled by our own Dirk Schreckmann:

  • Sun's Java Tutorial
  • Introduction to Computer Science using Java by Bradley Kjell
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java by David J. Eck
  • Dick Baldwin's Java Programming Tutorials
  • Interactive Programming In Java by Lynn Andrea Stein
  • Bruce Eckel's Thinking In Java
  • JavaRanch's own Campfire Stories
  • Allen B. Downey's How To Think Like A Computer Scientist

  • I'm going to move this thread over to our "Java in General (Beginner)" forum, where you'll be able to get the help you need; look for it there and continue this conversation.

    Robert, now that quiz is likely over, I'd recommend getting an earlier start on the next task.

    Don't hesitate to post relevant code that you're working on. Many folks around here will be glad to help nudge you in the right direction.

    Note, when posting code, please be sure to surround the code with the [code] and [/code] UBB Tags. This will help to preserve the formatting of the code, thus making it easier to read and understand.

    check out what 'mod' does...for instance, what 4 mod 2 would result in..

    once you know this, you will see the light

    Coincidentally I was asked to do something very similar (odds between 0 and 100 - on paper) today in a job interview for a major investment bank. Now, the role is for a senior developer and I have 5+ years Java. I hope I passed!

    I sympathize Julian - last interview I attended: a "J2EE developer" postition (coincidentally for a major investment bank) I was asked 30 mins of questions about....Swing. At no time did they ask about EJB, JAAS, ORM technologies, JMS, JDBC, JSP, Servlets, XML, Web Services, JTA...
