Hey guys,
First of all, I'd like to thanks all of you Ranchers for this place and its great informations. I've just passed SCJP 1.4 and scored 88%.
In general, test questions were harder than this one I've answered in JQPlus. Well, a bad new is that there are more questions about threads (I've counted 8). On the other hand, questions about Assertions were quite easy. I've only spent two hours about the subject and it was enough! Questions about wrapper classes were also easy. However, questions about hashcode topic were really difficult (there was only 2).
That's all. Good Lucky for you!!

Congratulations! I am also taking the exam very soon!
by the way, how hard is the hashCode()? don't we only need to know the relationship of equal() and hashCode()? something like if two objects are equal, they have the same value from hashCode()(??)
hmm, how easy was the assertion questions? is it enough if i know what to type in command line when i run the program with assertion on. and if i know how the assert looks like in code, is that enough?
congratulation again! very nice score~!

Dear Serena Chen,
You are right about what we should know about hashcode. One of the questions was exactly that! The problem was only the tricks they played with the words (for those which English is not the first languange this can be a problem). The other one was something like that: What is the best implementation of the hashcode method of class that follows:
class Car {
int gears;
long serialNumber;
String description;
}
Questions about assertions were really simple I only needed to know the two forms of assert statement and how it works. Command line options for javac and java regarding assert statement haven't appeared in the test.
I hope it helps!! Good luck!
