The CX310-065 (Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform, Standard Edition 6) checks your real ability as a programmer. In fact, it is totally scenario based rather than knowledge based. This test requires you to have a good understanding of the Java language and the capability to write code for well-defined design applications.

A good number of questions will be based on new topics added to the language in J2SE 5 and J2SE 6 versions. These topics are as follows: generics, autoboxing/unboxing, covariant return, variable length arguments, static import, enums, Console class, NavigableSet, NavigableMap, and for-each loop.
