Ok, I want to start off by venting. I requested a new voucher due to the extension. Since I didn't get it before Saturday (the day I was scheduled to take the exam), I went and took the exam as scheduled. Well I just got the new extened voucher in my email Oh well. Now onto my experience.
Like everyone else has said, 174 questions...4 hours 30 minutes plus 15 minutes for the survey, making the grand total 4 hours 45 minutes. I didn't need nearly that much time (but I'm a quick test taker).
What you need to know:
Know the APIs. Method signatures and parameters.
Know the higherarchy (sp?) of the objects and data structers.
That is correct. It takes 6-8 weeks to get the results. To be honest, I don't have high hopes of passing. I had taken a small tutorial on Web Services about a year ago. I was in the middle of studying for the SCMAD certification when I found out about this cert. When I got the voucher, I bought the book to study for it, but due to work and personal time comitments (I'm going back for my Masters), I only got thru chapter 14. If I didn't pass it though, I'll be one of the first to sign up for the released version
