Hi,
I am having second thoughts about taking the test. Because sometimes i am really having tough time to understand even very simple things. I will show you what i mean.
CODE:
short s1=1;
short s2=3;
short s3=s1/s3; //compiler complains coz every arithmetic expression by default yields to a result of type int.Even when i have explicitly declared s1& s2 as short???
Now in the second case:
short s = 1/3; // compiler is quietly performing the calc and printing the result.
You see what i mean. I don't know what i am missing here. But it's driving me nuts.If i can't deal even with very simple things like this how am i going to take care of threads and all other tough things in the test.
Thanks.

sree!
1. don't panic!
2. As you can see from posts in this forum, there are significatnly less questionsregarding threads, exceptions etc. - because it is really much easier to comprehend them than internal workings of a language.
3. Go to JLS and read �15.25.1 - Simple Assignment Operator =

You'll be fine.

sree,
Have you started taking all the mock exams? If so, what's your constant score in those? I think others will be able to give suggestions when you answer this.

sree,
compile and run the following as is:
public class ForSree{
public static void main(String args[]){
byte b = 130 /* HEY JRoch, too large ???
because byte should be -128 to 127, right?
yep.. OK, */ - ((182647453-4 / 7 * 3 + 2) - 182647326 -
109/5 - 105); // think this could fix it. Let's see:
System.out.print(b);
}
}
Hope it'll make your smile back.
JRoch
PS: I failed Khalid's test too this morning. Don't pay too much attention to sentences that would say "you must score at least 87% on Khalid's test" or why not, in the same style, "have it done within one hour"! Because there are mostly 5 possible choices style, and questions often require scrolling down a fair amount!

Actually, I think that the Khalid test (online, anyway) is rather poorly done. There is no way to check your answers - how do you learn from that? Just for grins, I answered the first few questions with a book beside me. I am positive they were both right, but the score showed that neither of them were! I would quote the questions to you, but of course there is no way to do that as the question sequence chqanges and the questions aren't reviewable afterward. I'll stick with the three books I have - RHE, Exam Cram and Boone.
 
I think I'll just lie down here for a second. And ponder this tiny ad:
