Hello:

In the actual exam, do they always tell you how many checkboxes you have to select?
E.g. if there are 5 possible answers and more than one is correct, do they tell you something like
"select two"? If one selects a wrong number of checkboxes, is there a built-in restriction that doesn't allow one to proceed?

Thanks,
Nik

A warm welcome to the CodeRanch!

The question always mention how many correct answers to select (unless it's a radio button, then you can select only 1 ). If you select not enough answers, the question is marked as incomplete and at the end of the exam you can review all incomplete questions. When you select too many answers, I have no clue what happens (never happened in 4 certification exams )

Thank you for replying.

I went through the entire SCJP Java 6 book by Sierra and Bates.
Do I get it right that, roughly speaking, Oracle took the SCJP Java 6 exam and split it into two, 1Z0-803 and 804?

The exam won't allow you to select more options than the count of the correct ones and will notify it to you using a message/ popup window.

For an example, assume you selected options (a) and (c) for a question, which states that you should select 2 correct options. If you try to select another option, say, (b), you will be warned against selecting more options that the correct number of options. Happened with me! :-)

With respect,
Mala

That's right. It also added topics like JDBC, NIO, Design patterns and Localization, to exam 1Z0-804 (these topics were not included in SCJP ver 6).

With respect,

If you are planning to take the OCAJP7, the complete K&B6 is way too much information. This thread lists the chapters and topics you have to concentrate on for OCAJP7. Also don't forget Java 7 has some little language enhancements you'll probably need to know for this certification (diamond syntax, underscores in integer literals,...

I agree with Mala Gupta. The OCPJP7 is now more challenging than the OCPJP6 has ever been. You are also likely to encounter these additional topics on your daily job as a java programmer/developer. That has probably been the reason for adding them in the 1st place.
