81%!!! & my exp.
Hi ranchers, I score 81% in the cert exam yesterday. It's very good for a guy w/o IT background. This forum really helps me a lot. It's now my turn to give you as much hints as I can remember.
I score 100% in java.IO (4-5Qs) coz all Qs have been covered in JQ+ & Marcus. Most Qs ask the use of constructors . It's worth while to put effort for the easy-scoring questions.
Yes, many Qs about Thread, but they've all been covered in JQ+. The concepts of "sychronized" & deadlock are important. One asks u which method can move a thread from one stage to another. You've to remind that a Q put an Runnable "that" into a Thread as an argument which want to make u confused with the "this".
GC question is the coding question that u can see many times in this forum.
I remembered there are at least 2 Qs putting 1 or 2 variables into a method with no return type and test u whether the value have been changed. They ar similiar to Qs in Marcus.
Method declaration & access modifier is surprisingly my worst part 67%. This part has some theoretical Qs about inner class (esp. anonymous class). Whether a method in the subclass can override the method in the parent class with different return type but the same signature and same method name (no argument for ex.) is one thing that I��m not very sure in the exam.
Finally, the disclaimer really surprised me. They are two questions asking you to agree or disagree sth which contain long passages. The most important thing is the timer has started counting. I've no time to wise and just click "agree" in both Qs. Does anyone know what the disclaimer say?
My score in Marcus 73%, 75%, 60% for exam 1, 2 & 3. It��s a must for the exam. JQ+ is another useful learning tool for me. I score from 43%-55% for the first 4 exams, 68%-75% for the last 4 after hardworking on studing the Qs.

I use RHE bible, the Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide and Sun��s materials.
I studied the Sun��s training course (it��s name seems to be ��Java Language Programming��) and then study Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide. RHE is the reading for the exam. I used to study 3 - 4 hrs after working since late Feb, but 6-8 hrs/day 1 month before the exam.
I��m now teaching computer as part-time and am trying to search for a job in Web industry. I��ll know if this cert. can help me to find a job in Hong Kong soon. I want to develop a project with JSP and Servlet too.

About Q of thread, I remember I have 7-8 Qs about it and only 1-2 are theortetical. u'd better know how to make code of deadlock.
GC question is certainly not the same, but the Q I saw is very very similar to the coding Q u can see everywhere. If you know how to answer the question, u will have no problem in the exam. (If u have the same Q as me).
Velmurugan's note is a great material for the exam, it really help u to memorize all the necessary points (collected from different books) in the exam.
