[Java] Java Silver Report (Failure & Pass Experience Report)

2 minute read


I’m ashamed to say that I was able to pass the second JavaSilver test last day, so I would like to write a report based on my reflection.

JavaSilver exam

Number of questions: 77 questions Time: 150 minutes Pass criteria: 65%

Learning status and results


・ Thorough capture JavaSE8Silver problem collection pdf version (black book) I have ipadpro12.9, so I used it in Goodnote. It was convenient to use it as a separate document for the first and second laps.

1st time: 50% fail

・Examination in December of the first year of new graduates ・2 months + 2h x 6 times of Java in company training and knows basic grammar ・One round of the black book up to Chapter 9, about 20 total finishing questions

2nd time: 82% pass

・Examination in June of the second year of new graduates ・Black book +2 weeks

Analysis of cause of defeat

I didn’t finish solving the black book

I ran out of time, so I went to pick it up, but it wasn’t quite…

Motivation did not improve

Although I applied by accident, it was a language that I do not usually use, it was a solid, large-scale, and difficult image, and I didn’t want to do anything in java, so my motivation did not rise as much as I thought. For those who have to get the qualifications declared by the company’s goals, I think it is better to choose the exam for the language used in the business. Or I wish I could quickly find a motivation that would make you want to try Processing.

It’s a mess with the language I usually use

The php that I usually use was looser than the java, and it was easy to forget how to write it.

It is better to solve the black book total finishing problem

Except for one and two questions, the same problem as the total finishing problem came out. (Although the correct answer rate is delicate…) Whether or not you will study, it is all right to memorize only the total finishing problem if you just accept it.

Apply for the re-examination campaign first

For the second time, I was able to take the test again free of charge. It is better to be able to retake the exam just in case, rather than taking it in the mental state of losing tens of thousands of yen if it falls.

in conclusion

I got stuck because I was like a written pre-test when I got my driver’s license, but those lazy people who have not touched Java often do not finish solving the problem until they get into their mind properly. Because it is a bad type of test, it is better to be careful (?). Also, I took the test at the Shinjuku Ekimae Test Center both times, but I went from Shinjuku 3-chome station on the Fukutoshin line for the second time, and I got lost in the underground and sweat on the ground. If you are easily lost, you should check the map first and leave home early on the day of the exam. I’m glad I received it because the hurdle to java has dropped a little. I want to make motion graphics with Processing.
