Hello Ranchers,

I have been posting the doubts on this forum since quite long time and i have got a good explaination on clearing my doubts. Thanks to you all for helping me a lot.
I have read the K&B book once and thought of taking some online free mock tests,I could find out tuff time in answering these mock tests. I had hardly managed to get around 50-60% in mock tests.

Can you please advise/suggest on how can i improve and which key areas i need to focus more. Whether i am Eligible for clearing the exam.
I have started reading K&b for second time to clear my doubts.
I am planning to take exam in March end week.

It would be rally greatful if you would come out with your own suggestions and ideas on this Please.....

You have got to practice, practice, practice.

You will usually find that looking at a bit of code in a book, or on a screen, that you can understand what it is doing. But when you come to write some code yourself that you don't understand the topic as well you thought you did. You forget the method names, what parameters the methods take, what exceptions they throw etc.

When you do the questions, you should focus on understanding the theory concept(s) behind it. It is not just a matter of finding the answer, but you have to dig in to the question, find out which area it is covering and then better if you can read the theory part at that time itself.

And the other most important thing is, when doing questions, try to figure out the answer and once you figure out the answer, try all the other possible variations of similar types of questions on your own. For an example, type the code in the question in a notepad, do modifications to it and try to compile and run. You will come across more theory concepts which needs to be covered by doing this. More variations you try, the more you learn, the more knowledge you gain out of a question. After doing this for sometime you will find questions similar to the variations you have tried before, making it easy to figure out the answer.

Reading the theory parts without doing questions is not very effective. But if you read the theory parts with regard to each question you do, it will be more effective. At the beginning you will have to read more to grab the concept, but later you will be able to find the answers easily for similar questions.
