The exam was easy. Honestly I have already seen some of the questions in some mocks. I wonder how people are able to duplicate the entire question! I had 3-4 questions where I wasn't sure about the answers i.e. questions where I really had to think. Maybe I wasted a lot of time on this questions instead of revising the easy ones. So I guess I missed out something in those easy ones.
I would suggest the following for people taking the exam
Read RHE thoroughly, try solving marcus green mocks, RHE mock, rules round up, and maybe two or three other mocks. Instead of just knowing how to do the conversions(octal, hexadecimal,decimal)or any other topic, actually practice doing it. I did not see any tricky questions on the exam. If you are not sure about the answers to a few questions, mark the best possible answer and don't waste your time on those questions, instead revise the other easy ones. You may have missed something.
The only thing I bought was RHE and [b]JSecure. All the best to everyone planning to take the exam.
I had 2 on layout(1 on gridbag)
3-4 inner classes
2 on events
2 on IO
I did not get the famous mediatracker or socket question though I was prepared for it.[/B]
