I finally made it ... Passed JCP with 83%.
Lost marks in Threads,Util, GC (Scored Only 50%, GC 0%)
I would rate this paper on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the JCP)
& will give Marcus Green Mocks a Point of 5-6.
My Score in Marcus Exams :- 79, 83, 80.
Scores of RHE's Mocks :- 76,80,80,83.
Please give JTips Test(One of the Toughest, i scored 58 & 62)
Try to give it twice as it covers number of topics.
I prepared from Khalid & RHE. (Khalid being the best)
In this week, i wasted 2 full days on Inner Class,AWT & Util & was surprised to find very very simple Questions on the above three.
So my advice to others is not to waste more time on above 3 topics(I may be wrong) especially in last week of your Exam.
Just go thru the basics of the above which u will find in Khalid's book.
I had around 25-30 Questions without coding.
Also i was surprised to find 1 Question very close as it appeared in
Sun's Practice Test, so go thru the Sun's Practice Question.
Re: Fill in the blanks, i got 4 Question of which 2 were on Strings &
yes i didn't used Quotes & i got 100% in Java.lang.
I would like to add one more thing about JQPlus.
JQPlus is a very Good Tool but i m annoyed by the fact
that JQPlus contains at least 30-40% of Questions which r taken
from Khalid's book so for me buying JQPlus was kind of Waste of Money.
So my suggestion is that if u have Khalid's Book then no need to Purchase JQP
(Paul Anil :- No Hard Feelings to u & JQPlus Team)
Once u have finished reading a cert book then try to prepare your own notes
& read that notes in the Final week of Exams.
Also in the last hour of exam go thru the I.O constructor & all file methods.
One final thing (how can i forget) thanks to Javaranch & all its members
& forgive me for giving trouble by posting more than 100 Questions. ( I was hoping to get a promotion from ranchhand to something when i reached 100 Postings. :-) anyway i once again give my partial credit for success in JCP to javaranch & will always keep on visiting javaranch.
