(sorry the english).

Hi Guys, i need some help. I've been studying 40 days to take the test.
I did 3 Whizlabs Mock and my score was 55% to 60% (didn't increase too much).
I also read the Sierra book 2 times.

My score in the javaranch game is 12-12 or 11-12.

I'm not sure to take the test on 19/dez but I can't take that to the next year.
My principal problem is that i falling in almost all triks. Simple things.

What can I do with this to improve in 2 weeks?
Checklist before answer the questions?
Read 3 times the exam befone finalize?
Whizlabs is easier than LearnKey tests? (Sierra CD book).

I would appreciate any tips.

Thanks

Jean Marcel

Jean Marcel,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

One thing suggested in the Sierra and Bates book is to note your weak areas. Go through the mocks (or end of chapter exercises) and write down why you got each one wrong. Maybe it was a fact (knowledge). Maybe it was missing a detail like missing a catch block.

Then look for trends. Do you need to memorize key facts? Do you need to slow down? Do you need to have a mental checklist for finding certain issues? Do you need to write more hands on code.

December 19th is still over 2 weeks away. Don't worry. You can get your score up in that time. Just don't keep doing the same thing. The introspection described above will get you over that hurdle and using your time productively again.
