Well sure. Different people code at different rates. However, there's not a one to one mapping with experience/pay. Lots of factors go into it.


Yes. I am the most senior developer in the team. They have more expectations from me.
....Deciding where one would spend time requires authority too.


So you are the most senior developer but not empowered to make these decisions. That seems awkward!

I see there are some questions in the Cloud forum for you so you'll see those the next time you stop in!

Yaroslav,
Welcome to CodeRanch! In the future, please indicate the publisher of the book. I've edited the title to include it.

As far as the question, three answers are "javac compiles a..." and three are of the form "Java takes the name"... So you are picking the best match in each group vs reading into semantics. The real exam tells you how many answers are correct as well which serves as an extra sanity check.
Mohammed,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

This is a very specific regional question so I recommend visiting the testing center if nobody replies. You don't need the best center, you just need a decent one!

For the most part, centers are good. I've only been to one that was a problem (in New York).

From my blog

Then there was the center I was at today.  They gave me a *one sided* erasable markerboard to write on.  But that’s within their rights.  If you want paper, you should call and ask.  The exam was held in what looked like a closet.  A small table with two computers and poor ventilation.  It was hot!  And no soundproofing.  I heard everyone who walked into the office while I was there.  Which included an irate customer who had computer troubles and was dissatisfied with the speed at which they were fixing it (this went on for 10 minutes) and another potential customer who was inquiring about training. It was loud enough that I had to hold my ears to think.  Which doesn’t go well with using a mouse to select answers or trace code on paper.

I'lll start:

If you've never argued about why deadlines are impossible, you have at least another level to master before calling yourself a programmer.

88% is a good score. Also, remember that it is a pass/fail exam. You passed by a good margin!
Welcome to CodeRanch!

That's not how this site works. You still need to Do you own Homework. You can ask specific questions when you get stuck.

If you are already stuck, start small. Do you know how to write a loop that prints the numbers one to 10? Do you know how to read from a file?

Paolo,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

Lines 2 and 7 are instance initializers. (Which gives us 2 and choice C).

Which other line do you think should be counted?  If it's the constructor, that's a constructor not an instance initializer block.
Also a shout out to Kamal. The winner program had trouble automatically excluding the authors this week (I think because there were so many of them.)

Kamal made a bunch of the randomly generate posts!
