I passed 287 with 87% yesterday. Javaranch did help me a lot in the preparation. The discussions about this exam in this forum were very useful for me. The exam was really very close to the ICE test.
I would like to know if the results will be stored anywhere in the IBM site. Since we don't get certificate for individual tests, is the score report that we get immediately after the exam the only proof?
Thanks,
Vidya.

don't quote me on this but I don't believe IBM stores your test results on their site. But, you should have record of it on either Prometrics or Vue's site. Both of those sites should have a personal record of all past tests..

Great job Vidya!
FYI - IBM has a database of all the IBM tests you took. But if you passed the SCJP you will need to fax that one to them. You can find the details at the IBM web site: http://www.ibm.com/certify
Once you have passed the four tests:
  • SCJP
  • OOAD with UML
  • IBM Test 287
  • IBM Test 484


  • then IBM will email you the credential as a PDF file and a mark you can use, but be sure to read the accompanying documentation since there are many rules as to how you are allowed to use the mark.
    Best Regards,

    Thank you all.
    By the way, Howard, I bought your book and I must admit that the last 3-4 chapters (on profiling, administration and tuning)really helped me in achieving this score.
    Vidya.
