Hi guys,

I�m reading HFSJ and I�m new in J2EE. I�d only worked with J2ME, but I�m studing for SCWCD since last week

The problem is that when I think that I understood,the mock exam at the end of the chapter say that I�m wrong. I�m getting almost of 45% on it.

Does anybody had the same problem? How can I improve this score? Reading a lot of time the chapter before go ahead? Or read all the book and then, read again and again?

Those aren't horrible scores for your first time through the book without previous experience. Just make sure that you review the ones you got wrong because that will really help you.

I know it's hard to feel good about yourself when seeing such a low percentage, but you're doing just fine. Don't give up!

Hello Carolina,

Make sure that you are doing enough of coding along side with the theoretical reading of the chapter. After reading a text - do some coding related to it...and this way your understanding would be enforced.

You should score atleast 60-70% after reading the chapter.
If you do not - go through the chapter again....

Regards,
Shivani

best way is to read the book once.
you said you had no experience.
so read the book without doing the chapter mocks.
then again read it and THEN give the coffe cram exam.
that way you will get used to the topics and you can score more.

hope it helps

Don't worry. I was also getting similar scores. I stopped taking
the mock exams after each chapter. I read the book twice and
memorized the important APIs. Now my chapter mock exam scores
have improved vastly.

I still haven't got the courage to take
the final mock exam at the end of the book. Hopefully this
weekend I can get down to it.
