Hello to all,
I would first thank everybody at Java Ranch for doing such a great job! Special thanks to all the moderators... I cleared the coveted exam on March 24th. I could not have done it without your help.
Now, my experience with the exam:
Firstly, my confidence was washed over by the first ten questions, on IO and threads. I was not well prepared for these two topics and as questions, on these two topics, came pouring in one after the other I wondered whether they would ever end or not. So, do not loose heart if the first few questions seem difficult.
I could have got a few more questions correct had I not been so nervous and disheartened at these questions.
Secondly, be very thorough with the fundamentals. I was so good at flow control but was knocked off by a nested for loop question. What I thought was the answer appeared no where in the choices! The questions never try to trick you (as some of the mock questions do) but they may seem difficult if the concepts are not very clear.
Thirdly, I found the exam to be tougher than most of the standard mock exams on the net. On a scale of 1 to 10, if mock exams get 6marks for toughness the real exam gets 8!
Fourthly, the best way to answer multiple choice questions is by elimination. That is, once you have selected your answer(s), read the other options carefully and compare those statements with the answers you selected. Also never leave any answer unattended since there is no negative marking.
Last but not the least be very attentive.
If you have worked hard nobody can stop you from getting it. All the best...
Regards,
Vineet Sharma

Hi Nitin,
1. Simply do All the questions in IO, from All the mock exams available on the net + go through Robert & Heller book (Chapter 13 and its Questions) and you can get 100% in IO.
2. I got 1 question from Collections: theoritical.
Best of luck,
Vineet Sharma
