Hi All,

1) Has anyone been able to devise a way to memorize the precedence table?

2) I have been taking mock exams and sometimes the authors ask detailed questions about classes such what exception a certian method throws. How can I learn all the methods of all the fundamental classes, wrapper classes, and String class and know which exception each method throws? Is there any way to narrow down my study.

Hey Pal,

It sounds like the mocks you are using might be having you study too much. There is a recent thread with the title something like "top ten things you think are on the exam but aren't". That might help a little.

Yu might also give us a few more details and we can help you know whether this stuff is on the exam..

- Bert

When Bert has answered, the thread usually ends in his complete answer But still I thought will extend on question number 2.

You need not memorize on all the exceptions a method throws. But certainly have to know about some exceptions like,

NumberFormatException which is thrown by methods trying to convert a string into a number.

InterruptedException thrown by sleep,join,wait methods upon interruption.

A few basics like these help you definitely. You dont require the extensive memorization of thrown exceptions definitely
