[program-java] Re: Java certification

SORRY!!! There is a man on my team who is a contractor and he simply says 
getting certified is not worth his time. He actually came in as an architect 
and wasn't needed any longer for that so he is now a developer. He still gets 
paid that high salary, so he doesn't have any need. Hi could probably take a 
book home for the weekend and pass the exam on Monday. Oh, to be that lucky.

Hi Suzie,
You shouldn't ask him if he's certified. That's not nice. <grin>

Are you blind and are you certified? If the answer to both questions is yes, do 
you have any helping hints? What assistive technology did you take in? How much 
extra time were you given?

The material was written when Java 1.4 was current.

With the possible exception of focus traversal, I doubt that you will find that 
any of the additions to Java since v1.4 have deprecated the material from v1.4. 
If that is a concern, I believe that Sun has maintained a list of deprecated 
classes and methods somewhere on their website. Java 1.5 included major changes 
to focus traversal that broke a lot of code that was written earlier.

Of course, there have been a number of additions to Java since v1.4, such as 
the addition of generics in v1.5, but the fundamentals haven't changed.

By the way, Java 1.7 has now been released. We will start using it in our 
computer labs in the Spring semester. The most significant difference that I 
have found so far between 1.6 and 1.7 is that programs compiled using the 1.7 
compiler cannot be executed using the 1.6 JRE.

I looked at it for a minute. Is it just Java 1.4? I am studying for Java 6.

The material is somewhat dated, but you may find the material linked to "Test 
Your Java Knowledge" at http://www.dickbaldwin.com/toc.htm useful.

If you take a look at it and find it useful, let me know and I will send you a 
set of clean html files without the advertisements.

Where do I find online free exams? Whizlabs costs $100 and up.

Jim C,

How did you study for the exam? I remember you didn't finish it, but I am 
really impressed you still passed it.

Suzan:

I know this was directed to others but allow me to answer using my experiences.

1. Adaptive Tech.

       Once I explained the reason for such all was well.

2. Time.

       I had double the length of time in a room by myself and a proctor.

Hi Listers,



I have been told I must pass the S C J P certification for any hope of a 
promotion. I know Jim Corbett has passed the exam. I would love to hear from 
anyone else. Jim is in Canada so his experience with the testing organization 
might be different than what others have had in the United States. My questions 
would be what was your study method? What was the reaction when you wanted to 
take your assistive technology to be used? I would like to have both my JAWS 
and Braille display. I find it much easier to keep track of everything like 
those parenthesis. Did any of you get the practice test from whizlabs? How many 
times did you have to take the exam to pass it? How much time were you given?

I am really hoping for a response on this
