SKILL BENCHMARK

Java Certified Foundations Associate Competency

  • 25m
  • 25 questions
The Java Certified Foundations Associate Competency benchmark measures your knowledge of working with the String, StringBuffer, and StringBuilder classes with the stack and heap memory. You will be evaluated on your skills in using the Java Math and random number generator classes. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to perform String and Math operations and use control flow structures in Java.
