Just took a look at this site and it seem the guy who designed has copied Marcus greens Exams ... literally .. even the page design is the same ... but he hasn't credited Marcus ... so I am going to credit him here until we get this sorted out.

Hey,
I don't think he has jsut copied them. Infact, Marcus has only 3 sets of exams. This site has 9 exams. One cannot surely generate all the questions. HE must have visited many sites and got them. Atleast we should have appreciate him for taking pains in collecting. Who will do that for free of money and time.?.
I found many questions in marcus exams are also from other web sites. But we cannot say who copied from whom?. I am not alleging marcus or the other web sites. Knowledge has no limits.
thnax.

Ahh but the issue is that he not only has taken the questions but also the page design .. it's an exact copy with no acknowledgement of the origional authors. (notice how the layout changes in different exams)If he had just said "Here's a collection of resources taken from these sites .... " then it wouldn't be so bad. The original authors spent a lot of time and worked hard to put their sites together ... they should be acknowledged!
I'm not saying the guy has no knowldge of Java .. I'm sure he does but anyone can copy and paste HTML ... which it seems he has done rather a lot on this site!
Also he's breaking copyright rules by using the Sun Java coffeecup logo!

I assure everyone that all questions on my site were thought up entirely by me. They are in the style of the real thing and there are only so many variations on a theme for these type of questions. But they are all my own work. If you could see the numbers of corrections I have had from good people around the globe you would all know just how original my work is. I am not at all impressed by anyone taking my questions and reproducing them without credit. There are aspects to my questions that make them very, very obviously my own work.
