I work as a java programmer for about two years now, but still have a feeling that i got little practical knowledge.
I am going for the 1Z0-851 ocjp exam and it's scheduled on Wensday.
I was preparing full-time for a week and now i am starting with the mock tests. Trying to go with ExamLab tests and got the following results:
Diagnostic exam 56%
Practice Exam 1 52%
Practice Exam 2 50%
It took me about 2 hours for each of these tests and i know they are supposed to be harder than the real ones. I have two more days to study and i'm really unconfident with my mock scores. Can you give me some advice, please? It would be good enough for me just to pass the 61% mark. Tnak you =)
The weak areas that i know of are the Generics, Formatter, Inner Classes and synchronisation. I think i will just skip all the preparations on Formatter and Generics(i have the base knowledge and i really cant get any of the mind-blowing examlab questions). Instead, in the remaining 24 hours i will read really carefully AGAIN 3-4 chapters from the Kathy Sierra's book as I am fearing that I am starting to forget all I learned in this week. I just came from work and completed the 3rd examLab exam with 47%, which is almost 10% lower than my diagnostics exam attempts.
