I did NOT pass

I did NOT pass the exam (2 questiones short) (I am not upset (not in a damaging way) so to be a little fair with "Sun not keeping statistics on the exam", as they say, and every body in this board triumphally announcing their success I am doing otherwise)
I found especially confusing questiones, in which the confusing wording was more difficult than the question itself, like alternating negatives with positive statements in questions (bad for me I an not a native English speaker). I guess I have no power to change that. I got loaded share questiones like:
Which of the following statements are true? (Select one)
A) Cats can only be fed milk
B) Cats can be fed milk only
At least I learned that I invested way to much time with the EJB's API. THis is not an exam about it!
Could you advise me about links with more info about these "situation-selections" kinds of questions?
At least I want for my part in the statistics to be known and be open about it.

Thanks

Bummer Albretch. But it sounds like you now have a better understanding on the questions that they ask so you can kind of gear your studying towards that.
Good Luck next time, I am sure you will pass then.
answer B is correct. Answer A states that only Milk can be fed to Cats, however you can feed cats cat food, water, and many other things. Whereas A states that Cats can be fed Milk only, which means that you can get a way with just giving the cat Milk and nothing else at thtis time, but it does not stop you from the ability to feed the cat other things too.

Missed by two is a monetary loss, but not a bad score. I'm sure you will pass next time. You have not wasted more time studying than you need to.
What to study for the scenario based questions has been asked several times in this forum. I do not believe anybody has come up with a good answer.
I'm in the final preparation for the part I exam myself.
Have you tried Ian's mock exam?
Have you passed the IBM ice test on J2EE conectivity?
Have you read Sun's Enterprise Architect Study guide book?
Have you surfed the scea yahoo group?
If you look at my other recent post you'll see the number of questions per category. While I was researching I noticed nearly everyone is missing some questions in common architectures, one question on patterns, and one question on protocols.
Analysis of your sectional results should also give you some feedback on what your weak in. What percent did you get in each category? In particular, how many percent did you get in common architectures?
