Could you please elaborate as what were the points/things which you were missing in your last attempt.Any change in exam taking strategy?
One more query; is time sufficient to answer and review all questions ,
I think time is enough but the questions are tricky. If my first attempt I could not crack many topics. Most frustrating were the loop questions. In some questions, there were 2-3 nested loops with break, continue etc. and they want you to act as a compiler and find the answer. Isn't that crazy??? Anyway... another topic I scored very badly was threads. Again, they create multiple threads with wait notify etc. and then ask you to predict the output. Then there are apis of collections, inner class. I just missed every thing
In the first attempt I had studied only books. I did only JavaRanch mock exam and thought it was sufficient. But I found out that this mock exam is grossly misleading. This time I read the topics again and did all the mock exams I could find on the net. I also bought jqplus questions from enthuware for 25 bucks, which was pretty useful.
I would suggest to take as many mocks as possible. Just reading and knowing the concepts is simply not enough.
