I have finished studying the K & B book and started giving Enthuware objective wise tests. I don't want to start with master exam or exam lab before I check my level of preparedness under each objective. I am going to appear for the exam in another 2 weeks but my scores are very poor. Can anyone please give suggestion?

Declaration, Initialization and Scoping - 50%
Flow Control - 39%
Concurrency - 36%
API Contents - 40%
Collections and Generics - 36%
OO Concepts - 42%
Fundamentals - 42%


Thanks

Hi Akila,

do your mentioned scores refer to Enthuware?
In any case, your total average is less than 41%, and you need at least 58,33% in order to clear the real exam!

Is there a possibility of postponing your exam?
If so, I would strongly recommend to do so, provided that you don't want to study during day and night, as well.
It's good practice to be ambitious while preparing the exam - but on the other hand, stress and fear can be contraproductive.

Java is quite complex, and you know that (referring to K&B book) it deals with stuff comprising more than 800 pages.
Stuff not only to be learned by heart, but also to be "integrated" .... in addition, you need to be familiar with many details and pitfalls, as well.

If you can't (or don't want to) postpone your exam, I recommend to review all your mock exams (Enthuware, Inquisition, etc.), concentrating not only on the failed questions, but also studying the explanations of the succeeded ones - there is a lot of additional stuff you can learn doing like this.

Besides, I use to write all the failed questions (or at least the essence which led to erroneous responses) down on so-called memory cards (with the right response on the other side). I go them through when I'm relaxing or waiting for the bus.

In any case, I wish you good luck!

I think it is really a good, I do something same with a .txt file in which I report all the concepts I learn from missed questions.

In my opinion you don't need to delay the exam. Just do aall enthuware and learn from your errors. Be sure to review all the questions,included the correct ones right, because explanations are really good.

After each mock exam take a big breath and study (with google/K&B) the concepts you missed in the exam, and then go to the next mock.

As final preparation, go with Examlab.


Of course you will need to study at least 4h/day, but you can definitely do it mate.

I whish you all the best.
