Today i passed the exam with 85%.
RHE book is best,it makes u fundamentals clear.Only after reading this book i became confident about concepts in java.
I referred Exam cram also.Its enough if u guys go throu these books just once.
what i realized that,if u just read lots of books ,its no use,until u do some mock tests.so,i stress a lot on mock tests,where we are going to apply the concepts which we had learnt in books.Do the excercises given at the end of each chapter in books.
I took around 8 mock exams.
I was in a delimma whether to take exam or postpone it.I'm very thankful this site-discussion group.i use to visit this site everyday ,and read others experiences.I recomend everyone to vistit this site and learn from other's experiences.
Dont worry about the score u get in mock tests.
I got qns on -mediatracker,waitforid(),socket.
one qn on string had used the method-append().as far as i know it should be used with only stringbuffer.
I got 6-8 qns -where u have to type.I got really confused as to whether i should use double quotes for string..?!They have not specified properly.
my first 2 qns were about sun marketing.i just clicked-i agree.i was prepared for those qns(thanks to javaranch).
I got lot of qns related to strings.
1 qn on collection api.
1 on gridbaglayout.(should know what each field does)
2-3 on i/o
very few qns on -awt package.i was expecting a lot.
I actually badly needed to put this on my resume.so,i took the exam in a hurry.Now,i'm planning to concentrate on servlets,JSP and EJB.I have to become clear about jdbc,rmi,n/w prog...
