Do I need to memorize every single code for SimpleDateFormat for the exam?

I read the section on SimpleDateFormat in the Oracle study guide book and even on Oracle's online tutorials but I can't seem to remember every single one of the codes. Do I need to bite down and memorize every single one or is there some other strategy you guys used?

Thanks!

Hi Kirk Rohani,

No, I would definitely not try to memorize every sngle letter you can use in a date/time pattern. Just stick with the most common ones to format a date (year, month, day), to format a time (hour, minute, second) and maybe a few others (day name in week, milliseconds,...). I don't know all these letters and I was able to pass the Programmer certification exam a few times (and I can't remember encountering a letter in the date/time pattern which was so rare I didn't know its meaning).

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel
