Hello,
I have few questions about the exam and appreciate help from
those who passed:
(1) Is Graphics included in the exam? It doesn't appear on
the exam topics on the Sun site.
(2) I'm studying from Khalid Mughal's book. Is this enough
to clear the I/O and the threads sections?
Thanks a lot.

Hi Amgad,
Mughal is more than enough to clear the exam. That's what I used.
Graphics is not part of the exam objectives. But you should understand the concept of painting, how the paint() and repaint() methods work. Eventhough, I didn't get any questions in the real exam on this topic, you never know.
The I/O package and Threds are presented in great detail in Mughal's book. If you do them well, you will definately get 100% on the I/O topic in the real exam (that's what I got). Just make sure that you are clear about all the constructors of all the classes in this package which are given in the book. Thread related questions are a little bit more difficult, but, again, if you do Mughal's book well, there's no reason for you to worry about getting a good score in the exam.
Hope that this helps. All the best.
Ahmed.

I agree with Ahmed. I didn't see Graphics questions either in the real test.
I happen to get 100% in both thread and IO. So I'd like add something more. Khalid's book is extremely strong in IO and inner classes, but relatively weak in thread. I recommend you read other books as well. As for me, I used Java tutorial, R&H, and JQplus besides Khalid. If you have time and enough interest. Check out Concurrent Programming in Java. It has in-depth knowledge about multi-threading.
