I got 85% score according to test score (59/69), but there were 70 questions. I am happy with this score, because I scored 88% for SCJP 1.4. Prepared with hanuman Sudy kit and HFS. I scored 71% the second time i took the HFS mock exam yesterday. On the exam there were a lot of cookie and API questions which I found tough. Also the EL questions were difficult, but that shouldn't be a surpise to you. Now I am trying to decide whether to prepare for the IBM XML or MCSE XP exam, the latter can help me in my work, because I am supposed to do almost everything including sysadmin. On the other hand I have all the books for the XML exam and the book I ordered for MCSE XP has not arrived yet. Third option would be to do it in parallel, but I fear that then I would go totally insane. The next possibility for taking an exam would be in the week of Christmas. After that I will have to wait for March or April. The material for the XML exam is too much for two months I think and I think it is relatively unpopular in the view of employers. Can anybody with MCSE XP exam experience give his opinion?

Sun sometimes puts one "test question" in the exam - this doesn't count for the score.

Hi marco...Congrats on your success with SCWCD. I am planning to take the same and found that you have mentioned "hanuman Sudy kit" as one of your study guides.May I know what it is and where can I get the study guide. Also would like to know how much time it took you to complete the prep and write the exam.

Thank you

Madhu

Congrats to you.

Before the exam started, it has stated one of the questions is not counted, it is for evaluation and experiment. But I haven't figure out which one, it is not marked.
