Hi Seema,
Drag and Drop Q are like...
some incomplete code will be provided to you...
and at the same time probable code block to insert in those empty slots will be provided....
so you have to select the appropriate code block which matches your requirement and drop in to that location to complete the answer...
hope this helps............

Thanks,
Sandeep

yes it is online test.......conducted in prometric center........
you can change the your answer at anytime but when you want to change the answer for Drag and drop you will get warning message as earlier contents will be erased....so make sure that you have the earlier solution with you to do the changes quickly...

one advice is dont go for changing drag and drop Q changes unless you have solid reason.....

best of luck for you

Hi,
How you managed to score such a good percentages?
I want to know how can I make my way easy to score good percentage.
I have little idea about Java and I am not going to join classes for it,I am planning to prepare for it by myself .
I have K&B book.
Is any other book required or this is enough?
I am planning to give mock tests.So can I get some sites for it?

Thanks,
Seema.

Thanks for your advice Sandeep.
Is there any proportion fixed for how many multiple choice qyestions are asked and how many drag and drop questions are asked?
Is there any negative marking?
How many marks for each questions?
Is all that fixed or varies from paper to paper?

its not fixed in advance.........
on an average you will get 15-20 Drag and drop Q......
there is nothing like mark for each Q
there is no negative.............
K & B is the best book for preparation...........
there are 72 Q you have to get 43 correct to pass..........

best of luck...........

You told there is nothing like mark for each question.
Then how are marks given?

Thanks.

Sima all questions in SCJP carry equal marks. And you can get a long list of SCJP mock exams here...

Hi Ankit,
According to you,all questions carry equal marks.
But I want to know it is out of what total ?
3 marks each or 5 marks each???

Thanks,
Sima.

why does that matter how many marks each question carry. There is no negative marking. And your percentage will be calculated on the number of correct question out of 72. So if you get 60 correct question out of 72, then you'll get 83%. So marks per question is irrelevant...

Ankit, Math.round method doesn't give the exact percentage. Exact percentage should be calculated via Math.floor method.

Ohh yes. That's why I thought that 71 questions out of 72 should have given me 99% as it computes to 98.61. Time for change in formula

scjpPercentage = Math.floor((correctAnswerCount / 72) * 100);
