Score: 151
The maximum possible # of points is 155; the minimum to pass is 124. General Considerations(maximum = 58): 56 Documentation(maximum = 20): 20 GUI(maximum = 24): 24 Server(maximum = 53): 51
I thought that the certification was a wonderful learning experience. Advice for beginning programmers: until you know design patterns, don't attempt this certification. Everyone can hack out a solution - the goal is to create an elegant design.
I had a running application in three days - but
I had a lot of free time since I just finished school. I spent the next week refactoring and writing documentation.
Overall, the advice is to stick to the requirements and keep things simple. I would recommend two books: Applying UML and Patterns,
Design Patterns Explained. I believe that everyone should read these books before they embark on developing an application.
Thanks to Mark and Peter.
All the best,
Alex
