hi friends,
can any of u please suggest me where can i find study material for xml rendering and testing and tuning.

thanks.
hi friends,
i am preparing for the test 141,just wanted to know how much detailed study of xlink and pointers is required.those who have cleared the exam can tell whether there r questions on their syntax or just basic ones.
as i have time limitations for study,want to utilize it for proper topics.
please suggest.

SCJP2.
hello william,
congratulations for the success.
can u please tell us which books u used and how useful jwhiz was.i had purchased jwhiz exam simulator for scjp2 and it was relly very nice and close to the real thing.
how much time did u take for preparation.
thanks.

hi sonir,
jqplus and jwhiz are two different commercial mock simulators.
i had purchased jwhiz.jwhiz is slightly easier and jqplus is slightly more difficult than actual exam.
there r so many practise tests in these.using these u can easily find what topics u r weak in,and some imp.points will b regularly revised.
they r really worth their price.
if u have any more ques. b free to ask.

hi sandy,
congratulations!
looking at the similar score we were getting in mocks,i underestimated not only myself but u too,saying that we will score around 65%.i am really sorry for that.i was also in the same boat feeling that i am not well prepared.
anyway,enjoy your success.

hi Barry,
looking at the score of my Jwhiz,i was expecting somewhat lower score(as i had heard that Jwhiz is easier than actual exam),but was amazed to get such a close score.but there is one more factor,after giving the jwhiz i went through some topics all over again,and referred API and velmurugan's notes after that.
anyway,Jwhiz helped me to realize the topics i was weak in.
IO was one of them.i scored so bad in IO in jwhiz that decided to study it again keeping in mind the mistakes.finally i scored 100% in this topic.

hi firnds,
thanks all for your wishes.
though my score is not so high but i am happy to b a SCJP.
my score in various scetions is as follows-
declarations and access control..87%
flow control and exception handling..57%
garbage collection..0%
language fundamentals..88%
operators and assignments..42%
overloading,overridind,runtime,object orientation..100%
threads..57%
awt..50%
lang..100%
util..100%
I/0..100%
in awt around 3 ques. based on asking the return type of methods in eventhandling.and yes 1 ques.asking knowledge of all layout managers of which gridbaglayout was the correct option.
operators mainly revolving around preincrement and postincrement inside the conditions of loops(really difficult)
single ques on gc which i got wrong.
IO ques. mainly about constructors,and 1 on encoding possibility.
around 5-6 ques. on overloading and overriding,which i found quite easy may b because i had a very clear picture about this thing.
thread ques. were such that i was not sure about a single.3-4 were code based and others without code.u really need to write enough code on multithreading.
few ques. on math class methods,extending vector class,instantiating an interface,top level class access modifiers etc.
now i would like to tell about my preparations.i come from biology background and have no programming experience in any language.first computer language i started is java.the book i first refered to undersatnd the language is patrick naughton.
after studying it for around 2 months i decided to prepare for scjp.got a guide by jammie jaworskie.studied it thoroughly for 1 month.then came accross this site and realized that i should but a guide by RHE.i bought but never went through it completely,used it just as reference where i had doubt.after this i was scoring just 60% in marcus green mocks.then i purchased jwhiz stimulator and gave all practise tests improving my score from 60's to 80's.my avg.in 9 tsets was 73.7%.and my score in real exam is 44/59=74.6%,which was rounded to 74%.
after giving jwhiz i was still not confident and then went through API documentation which really helped me score 100% in io.,i also went through velmurugan's notes but only for io and threads.
i was expecting actual score between 68-72%.
javaranch continuously inspired me to work hard.specially the section of results.this is a wonderful site.thanks to alll the members of this site.

congrats rahul,
88% is a great score.
can u please tell me what was your score when u gave the 3 marcus green mocks for the first time.i was relaxed to hear that actual exam ia easier than marcus green,s mock.
and do the questions on thread have a very complicated code.
and how close is the level of difficulty with JWhiz.
and finally how did u do with the API questions.
i am appearing on 27th.
any last minute tips.

hi friends,
following is a ques. from jwiz.
What will the result be for the following block of code when it is executed?
int i = 3;
int j = 0;
float k = 3.2F;
long m = -3;
if (Math.ceil(i) < Math.floor(k))
if (Math.abs(i) == m)
System.out.println(i);
else
System.out.println(j);
else
System.out.println(Math.abs(m) + 1);
the correct answer given for this is that output wiil b 4.
but what i guess is that it should give a compile time error,as ceil method takes only double as an argument.if we pass integer it will give a compile time error.
can anybody help me.
