Hi all,

Are you supposed to know the output formats of all the Date and Time API by heart for the exam? For example how FormatStyle.FULL formats into Saturday, August 11, 2057, or how e corresponds to the localized day of the week and h corresponds to am/pm. I expect I need to  remember these things, but I'd like to know for sure.

Thanks again!

Regards,
Shane

Shane,
No. You only need to know the "common" ones.  I realize that doesn't help much. The study guide you are using should help you hone in on what you need to know.
