The questions on the exam are more difficult than Whizlabs question?

Why does any questions on the whizlabs kit ask about classes and method(FileFilter,scanner.appendTail etc..) that aren't on the K&S books objective?
Maybe,I must study anything that K&S books doesn't say or explain...

When putting together a test simulator, it can sometimes be difficult to write that 500th simulation question. Sometimes test writers go a little outside of the objectives in order to get that next question, or even just to push the aspirant a little bit further.

The holy grail for any cert is the stated exam objectives, not a mock exam simulator, and not even the very, very well written Head First Books. Even the head first books go a bit beyond the objectives at times, and may I dare say, perhaps don't cover every single exam objective in all of the excruciating detail it needs to be.

When in doubt, look at the exam objectives. Sun is both legally and ethically bound to test you on the exam objectives, and only the exam objectives. That's always the final word in what will be covered on a Sun Certification Exam, be it SCJA, SCJP, SCWCD or SCEA.

Good Luck!

whizlabs, i think, is much more difficult that the real exam.

fyi: i think the master exam is only a little more difficult than the real exam.
