you said that cast is not a keyword for java 1.4, but when I was reading the book "Exam Cram" by Bill Brogden, it specifies that the following are keywords: byvalue cast future generic inner operator outer rest var Can u confirm if these are keywords or not for java 1.4 ?
byvalue cast future generic inner operator outer rest var None of these are listed as keywords according to K&B's book. And I believe the K (Kathy Sierra) in K&B is one of the exam's codesigners so having not yet taken the exam I'm going by her book not my experience.
Thanks. BTW, when r u planning ti take the exam and if u dont mind, what books and tutorials are you referring to/how is your study plan ? I am finding new opinions by people everyday and I am confused..i am really keen on getting a good score.
Hi Jui From the list of keywords you have provided none of them is a java keyword. Are you sure that these were written as keywords for Java or some other language. I would suggest you that you get your hands on a copy of Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates book. After you finish your book study for the SCJP then try giving a few mock exams. I would highly recommend Dan's and Marcus's exam. [ July 09, 2003: Message edited by: Anupam Sinha ]
Damien, et. al. - Just answered a similar question, I think the following approximate formulas will help you know how prepared you are: Our book (K&B) 80% ~= 78% on Sun exam Dan's mocks 70% ~= 80-85% on Sun exam
So don't be worried if Dan's seem hard, but be VERY worried if you're not scoring well on ours! Hope that helps, and let us know ! -Bert
