Hello everyone,

I'm preparing for SCJP 6 through K & B,

I have come to know(and i confirmed it as well on this link : SCJP as well)

that objectives of Threading chapter has been reduced, earlier there used to be 4 objectives which now have been reduced to 3, deducting use of wait(), notify() and notifyAll()....

My Query is that : "Should i still read this objective? Is there a possibility, that the exam questions going on at present were set in accordance with the old syllabus and thus could possibly contain questions from this very deducted objective?"

Waiting for a clear reply(even if there is a slightest possibility that the above thing could occur, let me know as it won't be much of an effort learning this objective)

Thanks Prasad for your reply,

But as i said i want a concrete reply....
If you didn't get any questions on wait(),notify and all then doesn't mean they won't be asked to me....

Are they completely removed from all the questions running at present in SCJP 6 exams held all over the world???
That is what i'm looking for......

Unfortunately I don't think you can get a 100% guarantee. If you got a question on wait() or notify() maybe you could sue them?

Seriously, I think the odds are very high that you won't get any wait() notify() questions, but there is an outside chance that you will - perhaps you can call the test center where you're going and ask them how recently they updated the exam?
