Hi Deepak,
I think ur doing the right thing, maybe u could go through some cram notes which u have made or u got from elsewhere eg Velu's notes, Janes's notes etc, they help in the last minute, try to go through the fundamentals as they r very important. And stick to ur one mock per day, more than that will be too much.
Hope this was of some help.

Hi,
I was wondering how did you do on Sun's sample exam, and on Marcus's exam.
These were pretty good indicators of your readiness.
Also, be sure and be able to "apply":
I/O constructors
Threads -
Overloading/Overriding
Language fundamentals
pre- and post- scripts

When you do the mock exams, make sure you complete within the required time. You might even want to shorten the time a little during practice just so you are put a little under the gun.

Thanx for the reply + guidence.
For the sun mock exam,at my first attempt I scored 9 correct out of 10 quets(90%) and I am cruising easily till 85 + in Marcus exams.Now I just want to stick to this score and achieve similar in actual sun exam too.Are there any new similar mock exams available or any snippets on notes.Pl.advice,I require it.
Thanx in advance.

Hi Deepak
Go thru Velumurugan's notes. They are good. Concentrate on writing some small snippets of code especially for language fundamentals. I was worried about awt and scored 100% but didnt give as much attention to language fundamentals as I should have.

I am quite sure there are some questions on the exam for which no correct answer is available. towards the end, I was flustered enough to mark an answer even though I was sure it wasnt correct,
(thats what is called momentary insanity, I guess ). I lost out becos of that. So if you are 100% sure that there is no right answer, dont mark anything.
All the best,
Regards,
Sajida
