This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Someone could please tell me if the real questions in the exam are tougher than the following mock exams or vice-versa..
( Use the following key:
+ --> tougher than the actual exam questions.
- -->Easier than the actual exam questions
= -->Same difficulty level as real ones..
6)K & B mock exams
7)Mock questions provided by sun for $ 70
Please specify the degree of difficulty or ease..
eg: If you think Devaka is too tough than real ones write +++
If you think Devaka is too easy than real ones write - - -
I would not take the results that you get too seriously, because there appears to be some degree of variability in the difficulty of the real exam as well. While most people agree that the difficulty of the Quiz questions in the K&B book is harder than the real exam, someone with quite a bit of experience in Java recently posted that he was surprised to see that the actual exam was at least as tough (if not tougher) than those questions. So it also depends on how lucky you get when you take the exam.
All code in my posts, unless a source is explicitly mentioned, is my own.
What about Whizlab and Devaka..
I have been scoring pretty decent in whizlab( around 80-83 %)
but horrible in Devaka(with merely 50-55%) ..
I have just 3-4 days left for writing the exam...
Please give feedback on my score...
