Can you please tell me what is pattern? Is it objective type EXAM?
I am not quite sure, but I assume you are asking about the style of the exam.
The exam is administered on a computer (you don't have to hand write anything). It is a closed book exam (you are not allowed to take any materials into the exam room other than what Prometric staff give you, with the exception of any drinking materials (remember that the Beta exam is a 3 hour exam - it is highly recommended you take water with you and confirm with staff that you can (and will) be leaving for toilet breaks during the exam)).
Most of the questions are multiple choice. You will be told how many answers you should choose. The software will stop you from choosing too many answers, however it will not stop you from choosing too few or leaving the question unanswered.
Some of the questions have only one right answer. Again, you will be told of this (and the answers will have radio buttons, so you cannot choose more than one answer).
Some questions may require you to type in a single word as the answer, for which there is only one right answer. An example might be "what is the keyword that indicates that a method may not be accessed by any other class".
And there might be some other types of questions ...
In section 3 they ask to prepare code example. is it like that we have to code any EXAMPLE?
In addition to Mahesh's answer above, there might be some drag and drop type questions, which might take the form of:
These have been used in other Sun exams that the SCJA authors worked on, so we might see them in SCJA.
