I have a question for you people who took the test. Was the font on your screen monitors very large, like 18- 20 points and double spaced, I thought this would be a problem, (I was expecting code snippets and alot of scrolling)
so I told the tester that the font on the screen was too big and could it be made smaller, it couldn't and to find this out to 20 -25 minutes, the clock never stopped, (although it was suppose to) so I lost time.

I have been preparing for a couple of weeks and thought I was ready. I don't think it is the same questions everytime. The posts over the last week and what some people said was on - was not on mine.
This was the first test I have taken any test like this.
I looked at and went over IBM's mock test and was using XML@Whiz, which I thought was helping.

You should request for a free exam retaking. You should have a case. 25 min is a lot of time plus your frustration level must be high after that.
Good luck!

Yeah, I did, it will take a couple of days, and I think I will slow down and try to use some of what I have was learning.
P.S. I will post a follow up on the nil vs nill post

And don't forget to request your money back from WhizLabs. They provide a Money Back Guarantee!

Here's how it works:
If you fail in your actual exam even after using our product, simply mail us your score report (scanned copy of original) at refund@whizlabs.com and we will refund the full amount you spent on our product without cutting a single penny for any reason whatsoever. Certainly we don't increase your pain by asking any questions/explanations whatsoever.


Good Luck!

I did think about the money back guarantee from WhizLabs, but I actually like the product, and plan on taking the test again.
I passed the XML rendering, and testing and tuning, but they only counted for 11% each.
Thanks for the encouragement
