Hey Cowpokes,
Three questions:
1.) Does EVERY question on the SCJP Exam tell you how many correct answers you should give?
2.) Are there ANY mock exams out there right now that have the same format as the new exam (i.e. tell you how many correct answers there are and have long code fragments as we've heard about for this new exam)?
3.) I've taken mock exams where some of the questions require that you give no answer (i.e. ALL of the given answers are incorrect and marking ANY will be counted against you). Has anyone had a question like this on the REAL exam?

Thanks.
Matt

1) As far as I remember all multiple choice questions now tell you how many squares you should mark.
2) I am expecting a lot of comments on my head but� Let�s try. I know only one guy, you all know him � �Get Certified, Guaranteed!� who claimed that their mocks are now revised for the new pattern - www.enthuware.com/jqplus . Paul, where is my percent? This is commercial product, you will have to pay for it, I personally never tried it and can say nothing about its quality and this is not advertisement! Just a link.
3) I have not had such questions on real exam, and since now you will be told how many answers you should choose it is not a problem. (I cannot imagine a question with comment: choose zero correct answers! )

That would be nice though! I think even I could answer that one correctly (or not answer it correctly? hmmm...)
Matt
P.S. Thanks for your input. I really wish there were some free mocks that had the new format. I feel that I'm starting to get to a point where all the mocks I take now I can score well on, but I'm not sure if it's because of my knowledge or because I have taken all of them multiple times and have seen those EXACT same questions more than once!
