hi,

I am bit comfused with my studying method because I tend to forget things very quickly.As a result if I score 75% in mock exam in one week I score somewhat less since most of the things vanish out of my memory.I wonder if this score is enough for me to pass real exam.
Can anyone please give me tips on how to memorize?

Thankyou

Hi,

When simple reading doesn't help to memorize the things, do more practice.
Do small programs using what you studied. Prepare short notes.

Practicing code will help you to remember the important factors long lasting,
because know the stuff by practicing.



All the best,

I agree that you should try things out.

Also, try to understand what you have memorized. Ask yourself why things are the way that they are.

Some things in Java have an "inner logic" try to find that. Other things in Java are arbitrary and you just have to remember them.

I got the following book in college and I did much better after using its study techniques. This book isn't just for college students but for all of us who study on our own.

ISBN-10: 0618046720
ISBN-13: 978-0618046720

Also try to have some sort of analogies which will suit/ help you remember by your own.

Say, in case of polymorphism you can take any examples as there are aplenty. But the thing which you should always remember is purely dependent on "You".

As and when you are done with both studying and practicing, just recollect once in a while atleast when you study a related chapter.

Lets say, you are done with overloading and now you are reading Threads, if in case there is a mixed question with Threads+Overloading, by that time just think over what you had grasped from your memory related to the Overloading concepts. By failing to retrieve all/most of what you had in your mind, its time to recollect the stuff. This type of gradual recollecting will also help you to keep in pace.

But ensure that you dont waste your time in continuous recollection if in case, you need to study the particular concept completely again!

Hope this helps.

Very much thankyou to all of you for guiding me through the study process.I also have certain doubts regarding the mock exam.I need to know how much should I score in those exams so that I clear the exam with flying colours since I am planing to give it by the end of this month.I score 75% in javaranch rule roundup game.Is this sufficient or do I need to work hard?? Please guide me.

Thankyou

Hi,

JavaRanch round rule is not a benchmark to judge yourself for the real exam.
You should score there 100% because these are the basic things you must know.
Apart from that, do the mock exams, link available in the Javaranch site.

You can do:

danchisholms.net where topicwise mock mock exam is available.
marcus green mock exam is also famous among folks.


Thanks,
