You should read Design patterns chapter from HFSJ: it's very well explained. Design patterns are very important for the exam and are widely used in developing web-based projects.

Hey I found that chapter pretty much interesting...I think you should give it a next try...or better just few page from last...there is a listing of all the patterns with pros and cons....it is complete reference for all the patterns.

No!!!

I'm afraid studying my notes to learn the patterns is like memorizing players' statistics to learn how to play cricket. It's not going to work very well.

My notes are a supplement to your other studies. When you think you understand the patterns decently, review my notes and use them to remember some of the key characteristics of each pattern.

I wrote the notes because sooooo many people were getting confused by poorly written mock patterns questions because the questions gave misinformation and the average studier hadn't gotten grounded enough in the topic to know the difference. My notes make a good reference point to turn to so you can recognize when mock exam pattern questions are misleading or just flat out wrong.

And if you're ever not sure about a mock question feel free to post your thoughts in a new thread and everyone will be glad to help.
