Hi all,

Altough the Prometric website seemed to refuse to let me log on, I hacked my way in (see this thread), to find out that apparantly I seem to have passed. And that only six days after taking the essay test!

These were my results:

General Considerations (maximum = 100): 100
Documentation (maximum = 70): 70
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 27
Locking (maximum = 80): 65
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

I am a bit disappointed not to have scored perfectly for the locking part, as I really tried to make that part ironclad. On the other hand, I am relived not to have the infamous 44/80 score. Instead I got the rare (?) 65/80 score. Did anyone else have that score for her/his locking?

The lost points on the GUI were probably due to my monolithic solution. I deliberately did not bother to do something MVC-like, so I can live with that.

I want to thank all on this forum for their contributions! This forum has been a great help to me. I have not used a book (OK, so I read the Kathy and Bert book, but it does not delve too deeply into SCJD), but I did not really miss one, when you can have this forum to read.

Frans.

Congratulations. Don't beat yourself up unneccsarily. To qoute a bad show (Whose Line is it Anyway), "...the points don't matter..." , just the fact that you've put in the affort to get a relatively unknown and difficult (one of the industry's most difficult, I think) certification!

Not to mention getting a unique locking score! That takes talent.


Congratulations on passing with such a great score!
