Hi Seema

I am preparing for the SCJP 5.0 examination. I already purchased a book
SCJP Sun Certified
Programmer for Java 5
Study Guide
(Exam 310-055)

by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.

How much this kit is going to be helpful?

What are the topics this kit is covering? and i am quite eager to know.

Is there any tips for appearing for the exam?

Thanks
Sriram

Sriram,

You can use the book and other online resources to prepare for the exam.
Please refer to this article for the exam preparation tips.
http://www.whizlabs.com/articles/scjp5.0-article.html

The PrepKit contains multiple mock exams which will help you get a feel of the real exam. The questions are similar in style and toughness to what you will be getting in the exam. Taking the tests will help you identify the areas where you need to brush up your knowledge.
For details of the PrepKit, please refer to this link.

Thanks,

Hi Seema,

my curiosity.

If I run the software in "test" mode, and then (when I'm ready) run it in "exam" mode. Will all (same) questions appear again in "exam" mode ??

regards
anthony

Anthony,

By 'test' mode, did you mean the 'learning' mode ?
In the Learning Mode, you can tailor-make an exam, as per your needs. You can specify the time (in minutes) for which the exam you create should run. Further, you can choose to have adaptive or non-adaptive testing in the exam. As far as the exam questions are concerned, you can choose any one of the following options:

-A particular number of questions to be randomly selected from a pre-defined number of questions (This pre-defined number of questions is the same as the total of all the questions included in various practice exams.)
-Questions that you have bookmarked.
-Questions that you have answered incorrectly in the previous exams
-Customized exam - You can specify the numbers of the three difficulty level - Beginner, intermediate, and Expert for each or a group of exam objectives

In the exam mode, the questions from the different objectives are distributed as you will find in the actual exam.

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks,

Yes, I mean "learning" mode, get mix up with other products.

sounds good it has "adaptive" capability.

my last concern:

"the questions" in your answer above, are they all the same as in learning mode?? If I spend more time in "learning" mode, chances are soon I will remember the questions/answers (memorize them by accident).

thanks again
anthony

promise, this will be my final question:

are you contactable if we would like to clarify the questions/answers? or will you be around here (in the forum)?
we can put the title message such as WhizLab: Q99.

have a good weekend everyone!
