Good morning ranchees,

So... I have previously taken the mock exam from the CD that comes with the K&B book:

"Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform (Exam 310-035)".

Today I was excited to take the second mock exam that also "comes free" with the book, which one has to download:

"MasterExam for Sun Certified Programmer and Developer for Java 2 Study Guide"

On taking this second downloadable mock, I was entirely disappointed to see that most (80-90%) of the questions seemed identical or very close to the the questions on the CD.

I was pretty miffed.

I don't feel the second exam has stretched or pushed me and it seems a bit of a waste of time.

Kathy, Bert, anyone - any comments? Does any else have different experience?

Maybe I have downloaded the wrong thing???

Cheers,

Simon.

Hi,

Well...not that anyone seems to be interested in this post...but what the heck...

I did try to download the additional exam again and in addition to the two exams listed in the post above, I found "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform (Exam 310-035) II" registered, notice the "II".

This exam is indeed well worth taking in addition to the one on the CD.

I still don't know why I ended up with three exams...but there you go.

Thanks,

Simon.

Deshdeep,

Buy the K&B book.

It comes with a CD with a mock exam on it.

The CD also has directions for a "Bonus Master Exam".

Cheers,

Si.
