This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
hi friends I just cleared the exam with 86% - although it is nothing to celebrate about - but for a person like me who doesn't know anything of programming( i am an Advertising man ) - taking this up and in a period of 2 months - to clear this has been an uphill task i want to thank a few people who helped me and are helping thousands like me 1. Marcus Green - with his excellent tutorial and mock exams 2. Robert, heller and Ernest for their to-the-point book 3. Mahalaxmi - for a good site from where i could get access to the WORLD of mock exams 4. Bill Brogden and Khalid Mughal - for creating such difficult exams - makes you so " feeling unworthy" that you study harder 5. JQ+ - excellent preparation - some questions were identical 6. and ofcourse JAVA RANCH - such a motivating forum - made me feel that i have thousands of friends who will help me with my problems - Thanx every one
Thanx everybody the exam was quite simple except for some things which I didn't know at all - like some complex questions on anonymous classes, collections, about 60 % questions have code - rest are multiple choice theory questions - believe me the codes are simpler than thw Multiple choice code is not more than 10-15 lines - only in some cases you hacve to use the exhibit remember - to click more to see all the choices wherever it is provided there was 1 fill in the blanks - on strings - i think concat
Threads - 6-7 questions IO - 6-7 - remeber all constructors and methods - chaining Collections - 3-4 - hoe to append file contents , what to use for specific encoding (ISR/ OSR) Inner / Anonymous classes - 5-6 - most difficult Math / String class - 4-5 - remeber the methods - try out all the methods of Math class using all types of inputs - Be clear of the heirarchies - what is final - static - abstract , etc Awt / event - 5 - Heirarchies - menucomponent - layout constructors - methods in event classes - methods like get source - can it take a parameter of obj o. what is get ID etc. GC -1 - after which line ... kind of question Overriding / overload - 4-5 - Loops - modifications of for / while / do loops most of the questions were on basics do the JQ+ mocks seriously - very close to reality - Khalid mughal - excellent - marcus greene mocks - for that matter do all the mocks - and analyse each and every answer and each and every option whether you answered it right or wrong just for you to compare i used to score ~ 85% on Marcus Greene( jchq.net) ~ 70% on Khalid Mughal ~ 75% on JQ+( average of 9 exams) ~ 80 % on Barry boone ~ 75% on JXam ~ 70% on Bill Brogden's most difficult and so on - of corse some were taken when my prparation was not complete Overall they want to check you fundamental knowledge - the questions are really straight forward - you just have to be alert to spot some error pls write to me anytime for any help you need
Congratulations, Shailendra and thank you for your in-detail explaination. Some questions I would like to ask you about JQplus since you highly recommend it. Is the GUI of real exam similar to the jq+? If it is not, can you please describe what it looks like? I'm gonna take the exam soon. I think it's better for me to get familiar with everything of the exam before rather than at the time i take it. Thanks a lot.
