I have not been able to find the answer to this looking around the Sun site and this site so I hope somebody can help me here. Plan to take the SCJP this week. How is the exam graded with regards to multiple answer questions? If you don't check all appropriate answers is there partial credit? If you check more than appropriate is the entire answer discounted?
Thanks.

The exam wont let you check more then are correct. I believe if you answer any part of a multiple answer question wrong the entire question is wrong.
hope that helps

Dont worry about that too much.
If you get part of the answer wrong i think the whole question is wrong. Thats mean no credit is given. The question will shows how many answer should be picked. Everything is very clean and understandable. Good luck on your exam.

Gregory,
The questions will tell you exactly how many answers are
expected. No confusion at all.
You won't get partial credit for multiple choice questions.
