Hi,
I want to take OCAJP SE7 exam next week and i have some doubts of how the exam will be organised? I want to know if is possible to use JAVA API documentation during the exam ? I am asking because i took some sample exams online and there were some questions of type .arraycopy() or some other methods that i do not memorize what their function is . So i am worry what i have to do? Do i have to learn all methods of arraylist,string and string builder or i can copy them and take them to the exam ?

No, that's impossible! The only things allowed during the exam are a computer screen and a mouse. At the testing center you'll also get a pen and some (erasable) papers. That's it! No other resources are allowed during the exam. You can't even have a (small) bottle of water or something to eat.

Did you use a study guide while preparing for this exam? You don't need to know all methods of these classes, you only need to know the most commonly used ones. A study guide will provide a list of methods for each of these classes which you should definitely know for the exam.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Ad you can't pull up a browser with the docs!

True! You can't even start a calculator or NotePad. The only application you have access to is the (full-screen) GUI of the actual exam.
