I don't think "cast" is a key word because
"int cast = 0;" is valid

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 ?

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.

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.

I'm taking the test monday
I've gone through K&B's book, twice, and have been doing Dan's and Marcus's mock exams. I did decent on Marcus's mock for 1.4 but not so well on any of the other mocks

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

Bert,
Have you and/or Kathy released a more accurate mock exam? The on I have from your book does not seem to reflect the real exam setup.
