Hi Ranchers,

Many people say flip charts are very usefull while preparing for SCJP.
(small cards (or thick paper) with a question on front and the answer on the back side).

But my doubt is exactly what kind of questions it should be, can any one who has used this method give some examples which will help me prepare them.


Thanks in advance

The goal is not to put too much on one flip chart.
One topic, or special case or anything that you wondered about ---> one new flip chart.


Example:

front side:
Question:
Is this ok?

class A {
B b = new B();
public static void main(String[] args) {
new A();
}
}

class B extends A {}


back side:
Answer:
The code compiles, but running class A will throw an exeption
(out of memory exception).
Explanation:
(... up to you)


Collect questions of the sort while reading K&B, while coding and while running through the java ranch. And one every day from Marcus Green.

Hope you got an impression.

Use of the cards:
Look at the question, try to solve it, compare your answer with the one on the back.
If wrong repeat early, if right, repeat after some more time.
Perhaps use a leitner system (like a vocabulary card index).

Bu.
