Just chill out !! Be cool headed. Take things easy.

Call up your girlfriend and recite all Java rules to her on the phone.

And lastly, after the exam, mail me how you fared.

All the best.

Happy Javaing...

I wrote mine yesterday and my advice to you would be to just try to be relaxed going into it. I would advise against last minute cramming as it will most likely do you no good. Also, don't do too many mocks beforehand or you'll find it hard to concentrate. I personally only did one a day. The day I did two I scored much lower on the second one and found it hard to keep my attention on the questions. Know that if you have prepared properly you will have plenty of time to answer the questions (took me 1 hour to answer), and with that in mind don't rush through the questions. When looking at code pretend you are the compiler going through it and make sure all the basics are there because there are always a few questions that can be answered in a split second by observing some key detail. Good luck!

Hi Sergei,

I am planning to give my exam next weekend.Since you have given the exam I needed some advice.

1.In multiple choice questions , do questions specify how many choices we have to select?

2.Also , my main question is If i plan to leave a particular question and come back to it later, how do you do that in exam? Do we have a mark button or something?

3.Do they give pencil ,paper in exam? Any specific things to carry for the exam?

4. And last, as my id is passport sufficient.In prometric site they have indicated they need 2 ids ,one with photo.My drivers id has my maiden name so i guess that wont work.Will my credit card work work has second id?

Cheers
Smitha

Yes to all four. As far as ids go I think they want to see the same signature on both ids. As far as bringing things goes, I don't think you are allowed to bring anything in there anyway (pen and paper will be provided). Going back to questions is easy, you can mark questions and you can go back to any questions whatsoever just by clicking on its number once you have gone through them. Personally I found the testing application to be horrible though. It reminds me of Windows 3.11 applications by its interface.
