Anyone knows if Sun publish how many questions where cancelled ? There are some typos in the test...
Doing some math:

68% Score - 119 questions

So, you can have made the wrong choice in 55 questions ....

If you think about the test ....

There are a lot of questions that I don't know the answer ...

I haven't studied enough about JAXR, JAXP and UDDI.

Let's see, I'm counting down the hours ....

The result will be divulged in: 11:38 (GMT-3)

Good Luck to everyone!

119 is just over 68% of 174. (68% is 118.32)

Still, I wonder if they're just taking a random distribution of questions according to the exam goals for grading, or if they're counting all of them... there's so much we don't know.

*sigh* 11 1/2 hours till Friday...

They would take only a subset of the 174 questions. Hence many questions which all of us got right would be considered trivial and would be tossed away. So it is very difficult to predict Beta results except for the ranchers who get nearly 100% correct. For them even the worst subset from 174 would only make marginal difference. For others, the result is not final boolean but just boolean.

For some - hopefully for most - tomorrow is a celebration.

Best wishes
