Hi,

I am using the Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 study guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.

I have finished reading chapter 1 and have just done the self test for that chapter.

I scored 5 out of 9 correct.

It was a good test and really made me think, slightly disapointed with 5 but not really. I dont think I will make the same mistakes again.

How did other people get on?
Did you find the test helpful?

Hi Rory:
I made the same score, but I re-read the Chapter with the emphasize on the missed questions (topics). Then I re-took exam with 100%.

Hi Lucia

me too, and I think the exam, re-read and exam again really helped it stick.
It also made me aware how carefully you have to read the questions, and options.

Well, I am stuck on Chapter 3: Assignments. (I use different book by the same authors, but basically it has the same text.) I have read it twice, but I still cannot make it through the test. I am really confused.

Well, I am not there yet, still working through Chapter 2.
i find that I have to read it a couple of times, then maybe leave it, sleep on it and then....

when i read the same section the following day then it takes shape.

It'll suddenly click I am sure, good luck
