I was doing some mock exams at Dan's website and i encountered the following questions:



I can't find the theory about this subject. Am i needing better glasses or is it not in the book?

Same question for this question:

i encountered those 3 questions in the mock exams, but i can't find any explanation about them in the K&B book i am using.

so i was wondering: is this in the book or not? do we have to know it for scjp-exam?

Of course you have to know this. Why don't you give it a try in your compiler

There are two topics here:

The topic of inner interfaces is not on either the 1.4 or the 5.0 exam

The topic of initialization blocks is not on the 1.4 exam (hence it's not in the old edition of the book), but it IS in the 5.0 exam, (and it's in the almost-done-I-swear new version of the book).

hth,

Bert

p.s. I know that Dan has talked about his mocks, and some of them are designed to very closely match the topics on the exam, and some of them are designed to go past what's on the exam. If you're focused on the exam, you might want to find out which set is which

That's some good news, so both are not on the 1.4 exam and if i stick to the bible (k&b book, just love the little jokes in it ), i will not encounter any surprises on the exam (if i have good knowledge of every chapter) ?

and which chapters are the most important ones? the k&b book is talking about inner classes popping up in lots of questions, so that's one already.

Most people say that threads, garbage collection and inner classes are probably the trickiest areas on the 1.4 exam.

hth,

Bert

p.s. We think we covered the exam topics pretty well - though a few people have said that they got a little extra threads material to study. We are beefing up (of course no cows were harmed) the threads chapter for the Java 5 version - and remember, for the Java 5 exam, none of the new threads stuff is on the exam.

I don't know if it's my level of english. But what means a interface that is a member of a directly enclosing class? I don't understand it.

It is the same to say a inner interface?

In general, the questions of the exam are linguistically easy? aren't they?
