This week's giveaway is in the Spring forum. We're giving away four copies of liveProject: Protecting User Data with Spring Security and OAuth2 and have Laurentiu Spilca on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm using SCEA Study Guide which is sold with a mock exam tool.
The mock exam contains a lot of questions on JEE API (JMS, EJB 2.0, etc...).
Does the real exam actually contains this king of questions?
For example :
Which of the following is not true for the ejbPostCreate() method of an entity bean?
a) The number and type of arguments must match a corresponding ejbCreate method
b) The access control modifier must be public
c) The method modifier can not be final or static
d) The return type must be the primary key of the bean
The conversion between 16-bit Unicode and 8-bit local encoding formats is done by :
a) MessageFormat and NumberFormat
b) Locale and ResourcBundle
c) Properties files
d) InputStreamReader and OutputStreamWriter
Owing to me it does not make sense, I thought questions would be higher level.
For SCEA, part 1, there is no specific guide available in the market. Looks like you are refering old guide which was there.
If you read previous posts from the guys who have cleared the part 1 exam. They say, there were no questions asked on API in part1 directly and objectives also never say anthing about APIs. But if you know, that's good. But its not mandatory.
So my advice will be not to depend too much on mock exam and real exam is different from the mock exam.
