Hey!

I will have my exam tomorrow morning.
I went through the book and a few times repeated the questions and the two minute-drills.
I scored as following on the ExamLab Mocks:

practice #1 54%
practice #2 54%
final exam 61%

According too what I read on this board I should be able to pass with theses scores, is that correct?
I will now focus on repeating inner Classes and Generics and one more time browse through the 2-minute drills, any further ideas for preperation?
How will the real exam be? I read it will have 60 instead of 72 questions and duration will be 3 hours?

No, none of them...
In general there are more (but easier) drag&drop questions than in the exam lab exams, and a few more questions asking for general knowledge rather than code snippets.

I even had a error on my exam with a question about Cohesion and coupling.
The question asked me to select 2 concepts, but I wasn't allowed to mark more than one answer!

I just scored a 61% on Masterexam 1 so your post gives me hope that I may be ready for the real exam in the next week or two.
