I took the new exam yesterday and passed, I figured I should pass on some knowledge before I forgot it. I had failed to pass the exam the first time due to being underprepared, so I can compare the two exams. And, being that there is not much info on the net reguarding the new exam I felt this could be a help. First bit of advice. STUDY THREADS. Out of the 59 questions about a dozen had to do with threads and critical section problems. Also encountered a question on encapsulation which had not been addressed in any of the text or mock exams I had taken. Sun lowered the passing score to 61. All of the questions require cognative thought. There are no staightforward questions like, "what values can be assigned to a byte" or "What are the instance methods of the threads class".I passed with a 79, and with the passing score being adjusted to 61, I felt that it was a pretty good score. I know that there is no way I would have been able to pass w/out the support I found on the web. The exibition of altruistic efforts I found continues to amaze me.A million thanks to everyone, especially you all at the ranch. I now feel that it is my DUTY to post a site in the webring giving some tips to the new exam and other info I could pass on. Thank you all.
