Mock book: java 6 practice exams

I completed the 1st chapter (14 questions) with 4 wrong answers. Thats reasonable.
But the 2nd chapter was so much harder to finish in a reasonable time (this was also stated in the introduction).

It says when you have not passed the 2nd chapter, you are not ready for the other exam-chapters.
When I follow this advice I will probably never start with chapter 3.

I think this book contains a lot of black-belt questions and the advice given was not very reasonable.

Someone here who has already dealt with this book? And what was your experience ?

Are you talking about the KB's practice exams book?
Yes. I agreed that this book has a lot of challenging questions. Some questions actually may be related to the Java 7 OCJP exam, not in the Java 6 study guide.
I tried my best to work on the 4 exams and I failed all those exams. But I felt more prepared for the real exam.

Yes, the KB's practice exams book.

After this book I will practice the enthu-mocks. Hopefully these will be a peace of cake after the KB's black-belt questions.

You can post the practice exam questions if you want to dicuss about them.
But to my experience, the practice exam questions may appear in the real exam.

Thanks, but no need for that until now. In most cases the review-explanations are sufficient.

just to clear up a few points:

- the practice exam book was written before the new Java 7 exam. Many of the Java 6 exam objectives are still on the Java 7 exam.

- None of the questions in the book are on the real exam.

hth,

Bert

p.s. As far as the questions being "black belt" - I guess that's good : ) I'd rather they be harder than the real exam rather than easier.


Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Just started with chapter 3 at 14:00.
Finished question 20 at 15:17, so that is a bit lesser then 4 minutes per question.

@Mr Bates:
Question 8 confused me:
If the rest of the code compiles, which line(s) of code, inserted independently at line 13,
compile? (Choose all that apply.)


But then there is an option H: There are other errors in the code.

I am not a native speaker but ain't here a contradiction?
