This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Thanks to Devaka, Henry, Ankit and all that helped to make concepts clear and questions answered.
I didn't do well on generics, perhaps I didn't read the new version of K&B book. I relied on the version 5 and didn't paid much attention on the added NavigableSet stuff. I encounter 2 questions on adding, deleting elements after doing subSet and sort. Also a mistake on generic constructor. I choose Gen<T>() which I think should be just Gen().
One unexpected thing is for questions with a "Task" button and need drag and drop actions. I found I couldn't review the answer. When I click on the "Task" button in review mode, it pops up an message basically saying if you choose yes, you are going to redo the question. I still did not figure out how to review these questions.
One small surprise is there are 2 or 3 questions given the code without outer class signature. It had 2 classes parallel with the public static void main method. I had thought the main method was outside any class but after the 2nd occurrence I realized it was not.
congrats man....well done...by the way how many questions were there on the exam?
From where did you take the mock tests?

60 question in 3 hours.
I did Devaka diagnose, 1, and final. They are really helpful. Just don't let the score depress you:-) I scored 62% on final(failed).
The real exam is harder than I thought.
