i am preparing from Moughal's book
i am reading ivor hortons book as well
since ivor horton's book contains a lot than the course
so i am using moughal's book as a sort of textbook to find what i should leave from ivor horton's book like jdbc etc
what i want to know is that does Moughal's book cover all topics
are there any topics that are not listed in moughal but are covered in the exam
Secondly : the topic of " adding sound and animation" is it covered in the exam
the course listing on sun site is just an outline and it has no mention of swing
does this mean that all things relating to swing are out

The definitive statement of whats on the exam is, of course, the list at Sun: http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/exam_objectives.html#programmer
I have never heard of anybody getting a question that was not related to this set of objectives.

hi there!
the day before, i cleared the exam. i had refered RHE as my primary book. i will suggest that u also do the same. for tuning your weak points, do refer khalid. it is the ultimate reference. but i covers a lot more that what could be sufficient.
also at the end, u could go thru exam cram.
i hope that should do it.
regards,
ankush.

ankush is right! i just started reading khalid's book and i was overwhelmed by the new info and tough questions i saw... i also read RHE and Bill's Java 2 Exam Cram book and i think all of these 3 books cover the objectives well.

There are no Swing questions on the test. This can be easily determined by looking at the objectives. They include only java.awt. There is no sound and animation on the test. There is nothing on painting, or drawing rectangles, or coloring in circles.
The objectives are quite clearly laid out on the Sun site. There will not be any questions not listed in the objectives.
