Hi Folks,
I hope this question is in the correct forum.
I have been studying up for the Java 6 exam which i am taking in Oct. Now that i near the finish of the book i want to code code and maybe some more code to put my learning into practice.
I have been using codingbat and i find it good but not focused enough on the stuff i need to practice for certification. I know there are sample tests which i plan to do.
I'm just wondering is there any good sites that give tasks integrating all that is needed for exam.
Kinda like "read in this file, add it to an arrayList, convert to Array, use a comparator and then print out to screen". I know i could come up with scenarios and tasks myself, I'm just trying to save time.

Thanks in advance.

Stephen

This might be helpful. Language agnostic codes problems to solve. Might be a bit more involved than you are looking for but it will certainly help if you can find the time.

Codingbat, which used to be called Javabat, was the only one I could think of. It is good for testing your algorithms, with corner cases to trip you up, but doesn’t train you to write whole apps in object‑oriented style.
