1. Sam...good luck on the exam. I know you are taking it soon.
2. MVC is used to separate core data access functionality (business logic) from the presentation and control logic. This allows, for example, a web application and a desktop client-server application to use the same data model.
3. Front Controller can actually be used within the context of the MVC model. It allows for the use of a "centralized view management for a Web application in a single object". So, for example, with applications that have "complex navigation" or for Web applications that "require transformations, etc.".

Is "Front Controller" design pattern just the "Model II" of JSP architecture?

No Vincent. MVC (Model View Controller) is also known as the Model 2 architecture and not Front Controller.
