Hi all,
I passed the sample test with the following result:

1. Design, build and test reusable enterprise comp 13 7.83
2. Design, build and test web components 10 7.5
3. Develop clients that access the enterprise comp 4 4
4. Demonstrate understanding of database connectiv 4 4
5. EJB transactions 5 4
6. Assemble enterprise applications and deploy the 8 5
7. Validate, tune and troubleshoot an application 8 7

My question is, in section 1 and 2, I see my score is 7.83 and 7.5, which seems that, for example, in a 5-choice Q (select 3).
If I choose 2 correct and 1 incorrect, it gives me 0.67 points?
But how about the real exam?
Does it behave like the above? or ONLY all correct will be regarded as 1 correct, and partally correct regarded as 0 correct?

You only get credit for the question if you get the entire question correct. So for single select, no problem. For multiple select, you gotta get 'em all right or else you got it wrong.
