Just cleared the test this morning with 56/59.
For those of you who are concerned about the duration of
the exam, the test is in indeed 120 minutes, exactly as what
is said in Sun's website. Before the exam clock starts to
tick, you have to answer several questions regarding the agreement with Sun and so on. After the exam, you have
to go through the survey (15 minutes). Note that the
15 mins survey is not included in your 120 minutes exam
time.
This site has been of great help to me. I would like to
take this opportunity to thank everybody here for whatever
questions you have asked and whatever answers you have
provided. Indeed, I learned a lot from all the questions
and answers you present here.
Some general impression about the exam. Yes, there are
a lot of questions about thread, and some of them
There are also a few questions on I/O....I think I have
probably lost one or 2 questions on I/O...quite tricky
stuff. Finally, you might be surprised that in my exam,
I was asked at least 3 questions on ananymous class, which,
to my satisfaction, I must have answered them correctly
because I figured the anonymous classes inside outside two
days prior to the exam!
I am a mechanical engineer by training and have programming
experience in C/C++. I started to pick up JAVA books in
May of this year and have been reading and programming it
for a while. Yes, I have also used it to program
some real applications in my job. At hindsight, programming
experience did help me prepared for the exam, but not
enough...I had to focus on exam preparation in the last 6
weeks in order to be sure that I can pass.
Wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Sam

congrats Sam,
I am taking the exam this week. The Sun has increased the duration, there must be some intention behind that na. Otherwise they would never have done that. Did you find any gocha in the exam? Or is the same as expected. In the Sun's site they say short answer questions.. What is that..
Bye.
sachin.
