I just took my SCJP 5.0 exam scoring 58% (59% for pass). I believe I lost couple of drag & drop questions because of the way the review method was
designed for them. I marked most of the drag & drop questions for review, but when I tried to re-visit these questions, I lost all the answers marked by me first time. So I have to re-do them from scrach. Is there a way I can
keep my answers safe even for those questions which are marked for later review. I believe I did some thing wrong while marking these questions for review. If anyone who took the exam very recently can help me in this matter, that will be appreciated - Thanks.

My experience - when you try to review an answered Drag & Drop question then you get a pop up saying that "you have already answered the question and in case you wish to continue, you will have to answered the question again , do you want to continue? (with Yes No options) or something like that....

You mean we cannot review the Drag & Drop questions by keeping the already marked answers ?

Yeah, the K&B book warned me regarding this problem earlier, so I took a safety precaution of not answering the "drag and drop" until I finished with the multiple-choices questions. =)

Or if you really tempt to answer the drag and drop questions first - then either you answer them correctly (and confidently) OR choose not to answer it at all just yet (meaning no partial solution and revise later technique), so that you won't get your previous answers deleted while trying to view it again later.

And yeah, the pop-up warning message should be helpful aid for you of not mistakenly revise the drag-and-drop question which was already answered earlier.

You can review them, but your previous answer will be cleared. This is a known issue that exam takers must be careful about.
