Too bad,i plan to take the exam before the year ends and my contract in my current company will expire in two years.
I thought i could use this certificate as a good basis of my knowledge in java when i go job hunting after two years...
Question 1 on this mock exam seems to address a bug in the jdk. The explanation shows what is output from running the code but it does not seem logical that this is what should happen. Comments?
I agree that that seems to be an inconsistency or a bug on the JDK. System.out.println(t1.toString()) should be the same as System.out.println(t1) as I understand the automatic typecast/method call in that situation. I've verified it on 1.3.1 on Windows, and on 1.4 Beta 2 on Windows. Very odd.

Saying "the enforcement agencies have their hands tied" is not an acceptable attitude.

According to your statement, that is acceptable to you.
The July 5, 1999 issue of Information Week presented a striking illustration of the problems which older programmers face:
It seems safe to say that experience may not be the most valued commodity, according to a survey of 200 IT managers nationwide conducted by InformationWeek Research in May. Though age wasn't specified in the question, only 2% of the managers said they would most likely hire a worker with 10 or more years' experience...
It is the blatant abuse of the H1-B laws by a variety of companies.
And about the slave thing i mentioned above , that was sarcasm intended.
