Hi pal...,
I wrote that topic because what happen this day when I took the real exam was realy..realy shock me !!!
I finally passed the exam with 83% (49 of 59)on my first shot(I'm very..very..happy), thank's to all of you who make me go through with it !
It is very...very...very...HARD & lots of tricky Question.
Here is my nightmare :

  • I took the exam in china, I've got a job here..
  • The schedule time is 09:00 in the morning, but when I got there (08:45), there is no one in the office, finally one lady came (09:30 - the recceptionist), I ask her, and the worst thing is we both didn't understand the language (I can't speak chinesse, and she can't speak english:confused , so i have to use the symbol language (it took 30 minutes to make her understand, but I'm not sure she understand ), and she ask me to wait.
  • it was 10:15, finally the other employee arrived, and I'm glad because one of them can speak english, but she ask me to wait again (I feel like I am a thread, and have to wait someone notify me )
  • Finally I step-in to the room, and it was 10:30, the supervisor tell me to write some information on computer (my ID,etc...), and once again I'm frustrated, because the computer is using chinesse character , so i grab the girl who can speak english, and i ask here to translate the question of the field.
  • and it was 11:00 finally I started the test (2 hours waiting).
    [*}And here comes the worst, I was shock
    - 5 question about java.lang.Math,
    - 9 field entry question, I hate field entry question, 7 of them is analize the output 25-35 lines code, it's very tricky (5 of 7 is about thread, IO, and inner class),.
    - 12-13 question about thread, I feel like i've been hiting by a Truck , you have to study hard on this, specially synchronization, lock, and deadlock.
    - 8-9 question about IO, beware of UTF and method in Reader/Writer.
    - 5 question on GridBagLayout,
    - the rest is only needed your consentration, because no question is easy, it depends on your funda skill.
  • It took me 1.45 hours to finish the exam, and I'm to tired to make a review, so i didn't do it.
  • One thing is realy bothering me, in the middle of hours, there is one chinesse guy in the room taking the exam (but not Java2), he brings something looks like a mug, and during the exam, he keep making a loudly noise from his throuth and spiting to that mug, I fill sick of it.

  • pheww..., what a day huh...!!!
    My advice is Never Under-Estimated the real exam, keep focus, work hard and you'll be save.
    Once again, thank's to all of you JavaRanchers, Jane & Cindy, and to "Bill Brogden" with his Java 2 Exam Cram, who realy teach me not to under estimated the 310-025 SCJP2 exam (I'm glad that I send email to Bill about how to write the field entry question, maybe Sun noticed about the email, that's why they gave me a plethora field entry question )
    regard's

Congrats Stevie,
Your post gave a lot of information on the question pattern.
Would you send me the details of text entry questions

TO post actual exam question as well as ask about exam question , can get you into trouble. Work hard . You will pass the exam. Without hard work , there is no thing like Success You can Achieve.
Your Friendly Bartender
Shgailesh.
