Hi Friends, Today i passed the exam with 85%. RHE book is best,it makes u fundamentals clear.Only after reading this book i became confident about concepts in java. I referred Exam cram also.Its enough if u guys go throu these books just once. what i realized that,if u just read lots of books ,its no use,until u do some mock tests.so,i stress a lot on mock tests,where we are going to apply the concepts which we had learnt in books.Do the excercises given at the end of each chapter in books. I took around 8 mock exams. I was in a delimma whether to take exam or postpone it.I'm very thankful this site-discussion group.i use to visit this site everyday ,and read others experiences.I recomend everyone to vistit this site and learn from other's experiences. Dont worry about the score u get in mock tests. I got qns on -mediatracker,waitforid(),socket. one qn on string had used the method-append().as far as i know it should be used with only stringbuffer. I got 6-8 qns -where u have to type.I got really confused as to whether i should use double quotes for string..?!They have not specified properly. my first 2 qns were about sun marketing.i just clicked-i agree.i was prepared for those qns(thanks to javaranch). I got lot of qns related to strings. 1 qn on collection api. 1 on gridbaglayout.(should know what each field does) 2-3 on i/o very few qns on -awt package.i was expecting a lot. I actually badly needed to put this on my resume.so,i took the exam in a hurry.Now,i'm planning to concentrate on servlets,JSP and EJB.I have to become clear about jdbc,rmi,n/w prog... regards, kusuma.
Hi Kusuma CONGRATULATIONS. That was a great score, moreso cos u had to give it in a hurry. I'm in a similar situation, I haven't yet read the RHE book completely and I'd to prepone my exam from 28th to 18th August. Can u pls suggest what mock exams should I take in addition to RHE, Round Up and Marcus ones. cos i'll have 6 days to do mock exams and I intend to give one exam a day. Thanks.
Congratulations. Could you please tell me what is the sun marketing questions. Thanks. mita

Hi Friends, thanks everyone. the mock tests i took were- marcus 1,2,3 applied reasoning majji -3 papers bill's exam(exam cram author) and his 19 most frequently missed qns RHE exam sun site-sample qns. for mediatracker, i didnt go thro any book. even now i dont know what's that "mediatracker" is .actually i got some info about that from the -this discussion group itself. it came in a multiple choice for me. u should know only this ---there is a method in "mediatracker" called "waitForId()"-this blocks the calling thread until the method returns---. only this much was needed to pass the exam. :-) about sun marketing qns- i didnt go thro that-it was around 20 lines.i didnt want to waste my time reading that.it was like-whether u agree if we sent some info(about sun,sun products) to u in the future,like some mails,e-mails.... ajit, i want to do some project in java which i can put in my resume in addition to certificate ,as i dont have any work experience.can u give me some ideas regarding projects..thanx in advance. good luck for everyone out there planning to take the exam. regards/ kusum.
