I think that's going to vary for everyone. I think the parts of the exam that you'll have the hardest time on will be those parts of the objectives that you don't use daily. For me, the most difficult parts of the exam were AWT and I/O. For my job, I write servlets/JSPs, so I seldom create a GUI. Since I don't use it often, I had more difficulty picking it up. However, for someone that never has to deal with threading, that section may prove to be more difficult. As far as I'm concerned, it all boils down to experience and practice. The other sections were easier for me because I worked with them daily and got lots of extra practice. Recognizing that I didn't use AWT or I/O very often, I set aside extra time to write code using those features of Java - getting some more experience and practice using them. Books and JavaRanch are great ways to learn Java, but nothing surpasses practice. I hope that helps, Corey
Thanks. I'm now at the point when i will be taking my exam ( hopefully) within the next couple of days. I feel that I've covered everything but there are still some questions that catch me off guard. All i need now is just to go through my notes i have taken.
