Q5 Chapter 1, Sybex
Which of the following tags is used to create a drop down list?
<select name='choice' multiple></select>
...other similar options.
Does the exam contain such HTML based questions. It's already tough remembering the servlet API, do we also need to cram the HTML tags?
Q11
Which of the following request header tags is innaccurate?
1.
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible Windows NT5.0)
Accept: image/gif, ...
Accept: application/x-comet, ...
Host: localhost:8080
2. Other similar options.

As I understand, there can be tons of headers in a request. How do I know which headers are valid??? Does the exam ask this kind of questions?
People who have given the test, please clarify.
thanks,
Kalpana.

I don't recall having questions about HTTP headers directly, but they are part of the whole equation. You will experience situations where you'll need to set a header and you'll absolutely be writing HTML when working on web apps (at least in most cases). I can't imagine taking the cert without knowing basic HTML and the theories behind HTTP. Neither is very complex in comparison to the Servlet API. Take your time covering the material, I'd suggest following up your reading with coding. Just my .02

Thank you for the information. Yes, I understand that HTML is required for writing HTML pages in real life. I just wanted to confirm whether it is needed for the exam. In fact, not just HTML, we also need to know a fair amount of JavaScript too but so should I "cram" that too, to take the exam
