This is what I got as result...

You missed 1
Your score is 95 percent.

I almost miss the version-specific questions... It's in MIDP 1.0... Be careful!!! But it's fun to do...

Your score is 100 percent.

I'm doing the exam next Monday 23rd. in Madrid.
Let's hope the result is the same ( or near )

If you score was 100 then you should have marked the letter B in the question 19:
19 Which of the following non-exception classes are inherited from the Java 2 Standard Edition 1.3 java.util package by the CLDC:
A. Calendar, Date, Enumeration, Hashtable, Stack, Vector
B. Calendar, Date, Enumeration, Hashtable, Random, Stack, Timer, Vector
C. Calendar, Date, Enumeration, Hashtable, Stack, Vector, StringTokenzier
D. All of the java.util classes are inherited
The engine considered that the right answer is B. But take a look at the CLDC specs and you won't find any mention to the Timer class. Both Timer and TimerTask are defined in profile level, and not in the configuration.
So the right answer would be A and I think your score is 95

Also CLDC 1.1 supports Floating point numbers.

The date at the top of the quiz says
by Qusay Mahmoud
Release 1.0
March 2001
so I understood that the questions were about 1.0 ( unless of course we attribute future-telling powers to the author )
About question 19:
I doubted between A and B but as I knew there was a Timer class in the J2ME API I felt a little more comfortable with B.
If A is the right answer then you are saying that the WRONG answer has been posted in that quiz on the Sun site since 2001
Anyway, if I get 95% on Monday I'll be VERY happy - and a bit surprised too.

I missed one, but it was a question which I hadn't read anything about in all the specs I read, but now that I think about it should have been common sense.
I missed the question about whether the Jad or manifest file took precedence of the other. So since the jad file is optional, then the manifest file is the be all end all.
Thanks
Mark
