Hi Ranchers,

I've cleared exam today scoring 97%. Feeling very happy with score...

The exam was rather easier than every mock I tried, but you need to be very careful, I spotted 3 wrong answers which I corrected in review after solving all question.

The good thing was I got time for exam of 210 minutes, I was expecting it to be 175 mins...

Thank you all for this very dynamically active forum, I got to learn many things and valuable tips from here. cheers...

SCJP 5 only... I guess they have unified exam timings for all exams...

Hi Sumaraghavi,

The time allotted was 210 mins only... I was also bit surprised and happy to see that... But I would like all exam takers to stick to official timings according to Sun only. This will definitely be advantageous.

One more good thing I found out was for D & D questions. I have seen lot of posts complaining about D & D bug in prometric software that it erases all answers if you try to review it. Actually when I tried to review D & D question it (politely ) presented a pop-up saying that this action would erase my previous answer and I will need to start from scratch. So, for D & D it is for sure that answer wont get erased accidentally.

Though the two questions I messed up were definitely from D & D section only... so be sure and review answer for all possibilities at first time only.
