Hi all,

I don't see the following Exam Objective on Sun's website

* Given a scenario, write code that makes appropriate use of wait, notify or notifyAll.

So, do we still have to study it for Exam?

Thanks
Chintan.

Sun recently made some minor changes to the SCJP 6 exam. Unfortunately, ranchers have been reporting that the new updated version isn't always the one being used at all the testing centers around the world. So, if you happen to get the updated exam you won't have to worry about objective 4.4, but at this point it's hard to say whether your testing center will be using the updated exam or not.

For a little while longer I'd assume that you might get the older version of the exam and study all of the original SCJP 6 topics.

Also, Sun did an extensive review process to assure that the updated exam is just as hard to pass as the older version

hth,

Bert

Obviously writing the code is specifically for SCJD. You certainly won't be writing the code in SCJP6 but concurrency is a very important part of SCJP6 and you will need to study it carefully.

Yes, Bert gave a very important point and I thank him for that. Not all centers are using the same version of the test. So it depends. Obviously SCJP6 wont require the writing of code but analysis of snippets is more tedious. Concurrency is easier to code than analyze in Java 6.

Thanks for shedding light Bert, but I do not see this objective even in SCJP 5. Which version of SCJP had this objective?

Do you mean to say that objectives for both SCJP 5 and SCJP 6 were recently updated?

Pardon me if I am missing something.

Regards,
Chintan

I really didn't check on the SCJP 5 exam until just now. It looks like Sun has removed that objective from the SCJP 5 exam also - but frankly I don't think anyone should take the SCJP 5 exam at this point - the 6 exam is MUCH newer and it adds only a few simple topics.

I'm not sure where the older objectives would be listed on the internet - but if you find a set of objectives that has 4 concurrency objectives then you've probably got the correct set of objectives for the older version of the SCJP 6.

hth,

Bert

since i checked with local prometric centre (NIIT) and they are saying that changes from 72 to 60 questions has been implemented, can i safely assume that there will be no questions concerning wait,notify,notifyAll (or any other topic that has been removed from the syllabus) ???
