Hi,
I'm starting to prepare for the SCEA certification.
I'd just like to check if I'm able to download the assignment for Part 2 before I pass Part 1?
I asked because I'd like to use the assignment as a guideline for study.
If it's not possible to download the assignment, is there a url that mentioned the problem domain of the assignment.
Thanks.

Han Ming

Hi, Han Ming
I don't think there is any place where you can get details on the assignment before you actually download it. The subject of the assignment itself is not very difficult, so I think that Sun is trying to protect the integrity of the assignment through obscurity, making you squirm and think a bit to get the certification.
You'd think that there would be no harm in knowing what the assignment is in advance, considering that you have unlimited time to complete the assignment once you get it - but they don't allow this. The only explanation I can think of is that they don't want people to talk too much about the assignment. I think that we've picked up on this attitude subconsciously, and this is why we tend to discuss the assignment in vague terms.

Hi Bagwan,
Thanks for your reply.
It's kind of disappointing, isn't it?

I thought since we'll be paying in any case to attempt the examination, knowing the question for the assignment is just a matter of time.
Anyway, that's the rule and I guess I'll have to abide to it.

Thanks anyway.
Cheers.

(cigarette smoking man from x-files): You fool. You must be one of us to know what part 2 of the SCEA certification is about.

I am not a member of the SCEA secret society yet, but from what i have learned from my sources is part 2 does not involve any programming but is instead developing uml diagrams. It might be a hoax since i am not one of them.
I am nervous telling you this! It can risk my chances of getting in this secret society. This forum logs ip addresses!
