Abt the paper.
1. Do look at questions carefully as I saw many question on
overriding. Most of them with different return type in the subclass.
Which is a compiler error.
2. AWT questions were really easy. It doesn't matter if u r used to
with Swings or AWT. u can get the questions done right. The main
emphasis was on the layout manager policies and the one question was
there on the Event handling model. I'll suggest u to know the name
and prototypes of all the EventListeners. One think which I am sure u
have noted during ur preprations is that all the methods in
EventListeners are
public void <methodname>(<event>)
Also u should know the return type of getSource() and getID(). It is
better to know the classes in which they belong.
3.Constructors in IO are important and u should know abt UTF-8 and
what it is used for how we can achieve it.
I think the methods of File class are also important.
4.Elementry knowledge of Util is sufficient. I mean even if u know
the names of the interfaces and the hirearchy along with the basic
defination or the causes they are here is sufficient. I don't think
that the name of methods may help u much.
5. Lang has questions on Math class. I don't remember much of
questions on this topic. But, u should know which classes are
immutable so that u can take decisions while method calls are made.
6. Threads was the only question which need a careful look. I suppose
7 questions were on this section. This makes me think that it is one
of the very important topic. The codes may go beyond 35 lines. But, u
can identify the aim without going into full details of the code.
7. Operators and Identifiers has really easy questions. U may be
asked to find out which are legal identifiers or which are java
keywords.
8. Exception handling has questions which really are like most of the
mocks have. U should know the conditions when 'finally' is not
executed and when it will be executed.
9. I remember 2-3 questions on 'for', 'while', and 'switch' but, easy
one. U must remember that only integer types can be used in switch no
long, float or double boolean. Likewise the second part of a for loop
and in the which are booleans. and can't be integer.
10. No questions on initializers. One on gc.
11. 2 Q on private class and protected class
This was really what appeared to me in paper and what I think was
their aim in the questions. The following part tells u the approach I
followed.
I took all the questions on the basis of what is the most probable
answer by reading the code and don't relying on the code. This made
me do the questions really fast. Also, lets u know which questions
may need a refer back policy as u have a mark button where u can mark
a question for coming back to it. (I marked 3 questions)
This really helped me to do the questions really fast and get the
paper done within half the time provided. The rest of time I gave a
careful look to the options available. This may help u get a better
answer. Fortunately I need not change any of my answers.
Once again thanx to everybody in the group.
Regards,
aMit

hi amit,
CONGRATULATIONS on scoring such an EXCELLENT SCORE!!!
i have a query regarding the java.util package.
i would like to know if the legacy classes and interface of java.util package are covered in the SCJP2 exam?By the legacy classes, i mean Vector,Hashtable,Stack,Properties,Dictionary.
The legacy interface is the Enumeration interface.Were questions asked on these topics in the JCP?
Rajashree.

RajaShree,
There were no questions directly on any of the Legacy classes or Interfaces. But, one question with a code of 35 lines with Vector and Enumaration was there. Fortunately, it was a question of Access Modifiers. Wrong access modifiers was used. Such, questions can be asked.

Congratulations Amit!... you know the same thing happened to me. I missed one question - the fill-in answer where I put a semi-colon....I shouldn't have done that
Well... nobody is perfect
Good luck,
