I have jqplus and jwiz, I also got Mughal's book.
I can now consistently score 50%+ on jqplus mocks, but have passed once, and 95-100% on javaranch rules roundup game. My problem is that my knowledge of AWT, lang and files/i-o is poor.
Can anyone recommend ways of revising this material without trying to learn all of the packages! I just want to know which classes and methods to revise.
TIA,
JC

John,
The best way to remember the Java API's is to actually practice them on your machine.I did it with success.I would like to add that your score in the actual test is directly proportional to the time you spend on your machine practising Java examples.
You need not discover code snipplets yourself.Just make it a point to code the mock test questions on your machine and try experimenting with the code.That will surely help!
Good luck,
Sandeep

Thanks, yes I have been trying the jq+ code snippets out, reading them through and they help me very well with general rules.
Questions on the API classes tend to catch me out though, and rarely include complete code snippets. Usually it seems you just need to know a particular method/class and its arguments and way of use.
I will do some more coding, but have already spent a lot of time building applications in AWT, but I use the API doc rather than remember stuff off my head!

Hi John,
JQ+ is very nice. You can also try JCertify. Why don't u appear
other mock exams also available in various sites?
