Are the subject topics at the top of questions in Enthuware also on the real exam?

Going through the mock exams in Enthuware, the subject topic of each question is listed at the top of the question. For example, a question about Lambda's will say "Lambda Expressions" at the top of the question. Will this also be the case for the real exam? Thank you!

Quite the opposite.  It may not be as extreme as on the OCJP exam, where almost every question has more than one topic involved in its answer, but the exam definitely doesn't break things up by topic nor indicate what the topic is that it is testing.

When people keep talking about how tricky the exams can be, the main thing I would be thinking of is that you see a question, see something you studied, focus on that part, and you miss some little thing elsewhere in the question where it won't even compile for some reason you failed to notice.

So the short answer is no, and that is why it is good to take full mock exams covering everything to see how well you are doing, after you do well on all the recently-studied-topic questions during learning.

No, topic is not mentioned for a question in the real exam.
It is hidden by default on our simulator (desktop application) as well. It also alerts the user that the real exam does not show this information when the user tries to unhide it.
 
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
