Hello all,

I want to know how much extend we need to remember API for SCJP exam,
I am thorough all the methods which were either directly or indirectly used
in K&B but while solving some mock exams i was unable to solve them
without knowing all the methods..

1) Is it required to know all the methods for the classes given in the objectives??
2) Can we expect direct questions about method declarations such as using a method
which doesn't exist , incorrect access modifiers etc??
3) If we need to remember every thing,then is there any way to eliminate the methods to
memorize such as Deprecated methods,methods using classes outside objectives etc??

Thanks in advance

yes there are questions, mostly they will be from Collections and Object and Thread class

Hi Prasad,

Knowledge of essential java package e.g. Java.lang and java.util etc are very important not only for Exam perspective but also on any interview perspective and as hari mentioned its good to remember method signature and there usage particularly Collections ,Object and Thread class .

Thanks

Its correct... In interviews, there will be an attacking question like "Does wait() method come in Thread class?"... For this purpose, we have to know very important API methods...

i am not feeling confident enough to solve all types of problems...
