The Quiz here
http://www.jaworski.com/java/certification/
seemed to have a ton of questions all about the Graphics class. Do we really need to know that much about this class?
By the way, I gave up after question 60 on this quiz. It seemed to just keep going. ( I thought some of the questions were way too hard or on material not covered and then some were way super easy. Didn't seem to have a good balance). Anyway after I gave up I was curious how far the quiz went and I got up over 100 questions. Are the questions repeating themselves on this quiz? Has anyone else taken this quiz? If all the stuff asked on that quiz refering to AWT could come up on the real exam then I'm in big trouble.

Rick, I was just trying this quiz the other day, and you're right it just goes on forever!
I also felt that some of the AWT questions were a lot more harder than need be? I found questions on what parameters to pass to a given method to be fustrating.
I was going to ask a similar question, will the real exam nit pick on method parameters? or it is good enough to understand what a method does and the correct way to use it?

Not only that, but the quiz covered AWT material that neither KM or RHE even touched upon.
As I study for this exam sure you could study 'everything' in order to be prepared, but I actually think that could hurt you if you aren't careful. In other words if you spend tons of time learning some obscure constructors that might get called you could end up forgetting some of the other more common ones because your head can only hold so much (well, at least my small one can .
 
Seriously Rick? Seriously? You might as well just read this tiny ad:
