After a few weeks of reading, this is my first post. The information here has been very helpful to my preparations so far, especially Fritz Walraven and Frederic Esnault's notes

I have completed 3 Enthuware mocks, getting scores between 65% and 70%. I have read HFSJ twice and made careful notes, but find myself frustrated by questions which either seem to be outside the scope of the book, or else get caught out by basic java compiler/exception/default value etc. errors due to lack of practice. The Java Ranch mock gave me a score of 88%. Which is a more realistic assessment of my status? I will do the exam in 4 days, should I just continue learning from Enthuware mocks or read the course subject material again?

I have tried to order the official mock exams, which are far more expensive. When I completed the order it said it would take 3 business days to complete Are these any better/more accurate than the JR or Enthuware mocks?


My specific question is : the <tag><body-content> element can have a value of "JSP" - but Q1 of EW test 3, and the specs, say that a JspFragment cannot contain scriptlets. If this is so, then what is the use of the JSP value in <body-content> ? Why would you use this instead of "scriptless", which I understand allows EL/Standard Actions?

Dear Patrick

My specific question is : the <tag><body-content> element can have a value of "JSP" - but Q1 of EW test 3, and the specs, say that a JspFragment cannot contain scriptlets. If this is so, then what is the use of the JSP value in <body-content> ? Why would you use this instead of "scriptless", which I understand allows EL/Standard Actions?


this is a very commonly asked question see in SCWCD Faqs about bodycontent
Refer other faqs as well.

Others here are better equipped to handle your other doubts.

all the best

The JavaRanch mock is pretty old, so I would not take the result too much into consideration. I think that Enthuware's results will be more accurate. So keep on doing them, carefully reading and understanding the answers provided. I don't know how hard the official mock exams are.

Hi Patrick,

The information here has been very helpful to my preparations so far, especially Fritz Walraven and Frederic Esnault's notes

You are welcome!

My last day preparations are always like this:
In the morning: going through the notes, cramming the most important things.
In the afternoon: do one Enthuware mock exam and read all the explanations on the questions that I answered wrong.

In general the Enthuware mock exams are a good indication of how you are going to score on the real exam as the questions and the way questions are asked is simular.

Don't spend a lot of time on coding in your last days before the exam, maybe only to try small things

Regards and good luck!
Frits

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
