I bought my voucher to take the programmer certification test. This week I've been taking mock tests. Mostly jqplus and jwhiz. I've been doing better on the JWhiz exams, usually averaging around 70-75. Anyone who has taken the test, is the JWhiz exams pretty close in difficulty?
Thanks,
Jeff Cooper

Hi Jeffery
I think you should concentrate soley on JQPlus and if time permitting attempt some of the Marcus exams (3 in total).
I took the exam 3 weeks ago and failed, but my score was similar to what i was getting on the JQPlus exams, I am doing a resit soon and was quite unlucky with questions(4 fill in ones) i didn't use "" for so that tripped me up.
The exam is not difficult but i agree with most people that pass that you do need a solid understanding of all the principles/objectives.
The code in the exam is about 20 or so lines max on some questions mostly Threads, Overriding/Overloading and
IO and the majority of other questions just require knowledge and understanding of things like access modifiers, variable scope etc.
Hope this helps

Some people have said they did others say they did not bother with " " for fill in questions.
I did not and judging by my score especially in Language Fundamentals which i thought was one of my strong points, it must have counted. In some of the JQPlus questions concerning fill in type(s) they ask you to not use " " and ; so maybe they know something we do not.
Anyone else had similar problems and if so what option did they choose ?
