Hi.
I have finally decided to take a suggestion from this place. I want to appear for the exam as soon as possible but due to job
i am finding it hard to keep the pace. Additionally, i start losing motivation after few days. Always i ask this question can i achieve
it? I can hardly get 1-2 hours depending on the work load. I want to study this exam in depth, not just passing it. I am finding it
hard to keep the focus, motivation and time balance. Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Well, the most important thing I can suggest is - since this exam tests your code level understanding, be in touch. It is much better to study 1 hour per day, instead of studying 5 hours in one day, and not studying anything for next 3-4 days.

Secondly, practice as much as you can. Dump the IDE and write some code in your favorite text editor. Try to analyze what are common errors you are doing.

Once you reach the comfort level of writing the code which do not give compilation error and runtime exception, then you can start using your favorite IDE - for the sake of debugging (especially threading).

Also, the more you'll practice, the more easy it will become to pin point your weak areas and focus on them.

I hope this helps.

All The Best!

Hi Anay,
What would be the best possible way? Should i read the full chapter first and then come up with some working examples?
I want to under java IO in and out as it gives me headaches many times. I want to come up with some small but useful working
program. Can you suggest me a small application to make? I will take your advice to read 1 hour daily rather then to read 5 in a day
and skip. It's very important. Thanks a ton.
Thanks,

I would suggest to start coding as soon as you understand the theory. That way, it would help to understand the coding part, and it will also help to understand further part from text book.

Mock questions can be a great starting place for mini-Java projects. Mock questions are usually focused on one or two important aspects of Java or the API, and the folks who wrote the mock questions already did a lot of work to come up with a concise, crystallized bit of code. It's great to start with such a bit of code and grow it and experiment with it.

Hello Peter.

Perhaps, allow yourself 6 months to study KB's exam guide. Reading the posts on the forum can help, too.

Good luck!
