Verbatim from K&B for Date,Numbers and Currency Topic

In fact, we will admit it right up front, you might encounter questions on the SCJP exam that use classes that are not specifically mentioned in the Sun Objective .

I am really got confused in this API jazz,,,,,,Dont know how much is sufficient and what would be asked ???

Could anyone tell me that

Are these methods provided in K&B are sufficient or we need to delve into JAVA 6 SE API for more....

According to above line K&B seems to take no guarantee of the classes and methods it has explained.

Thanks !!!

I did get a question that was not covered in the objective. It was fun though. I tried to guess the answer.

My guess is that you will get a maximum of 1 or 2 sucker punches in the exam. Not to worry

Hi Sahil,

We like to think that we cover about %110 of what you need for the exam. If you, or anyone, encounters a question you think we didn't cover, please let us know, right here on this forum.

That said, sometimes you might get a question that uses a class we don't discuss in the book. Typically that class is a distraction to the real point of the question.



Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
