Hi Guys,
I haven't written here in a while, since I was waiting to hear back on my SCEA exam. That 30 day waiting period is pure torture, so I tried my best to keep my mind off of it.
I finally heard back, and I just barely squeaked by :-) But now I am certified. I know I still have a lot to learn, but maybe this is an advantage. When people think they know everything, thats when things can go terribly wrong.
I wish Sun gave more feedback on the test. Maybe they will, and I just have not received it yet. I would really like to know where I lost points and all. I realized after I turned it in that I had not given the client applications enough focus, so I really figured that I might have to do it again. I figured the second time I did it I would learn even more. I will now have to fit in that additional learning for on my own time now. I'm not complaining :-)
I'm not going to have a lot to say on much of the questions I expect this posting will solicit: How did you do it? How long did it take? Etc.) Keep in mind, I barely squeaked by. I consider this certification the beginning, not the end, of my learning.
Best of luck guys. It is a project worth doing. This is a great field to aspire to become great in. People who can really do this are rare, and I think the main determining factor is dedication.

Attaboy! I keep saying the toughest part is the 30 day wait. What's next? (hint, go for the IBM XML exam)

Great job, Skip. The most important thing is what you learn, not the score.
Regards,
Mark

Hi,
