I finally got my results on the Part II.
I scored 90%, lost all point on the class diagram. Hint: if you are thinking of modeling your class diagram after Sun J2EE Arch. Study Guide's case study -- don't. I've knocked this book before, but I will not be redundant saying it's a piece of sh*t.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our discussions, particularly to Alex Pisarev who contested everything I said which made it for some interesting discussions.
Oh yeah...check out my new signature:

Hey Gennady,
Congrats on your pass!!!
Did u change the domain model in anyway? Have you got a clue about why you dropped your 10 marks?
Cheers
Jas

Jas, I think I do have a clue.
A few things, #1. Now I think they were expecting a high level conceptual diagram remotely related to the deployment diagram. For example, in a real system you would not inherit ba737, ba757 from an AbstractAircraft, you would have a common Aircraft and customize it from AircraftInfo that reads planes' properties from DB, and that's how I presented it. I think what they were expecting was a OO view of the system.
#2. I now think that CreditCard, CreditCardManager, Email, etc have no place on this diargam....
Things like that, the class diagram should be kept simple and concise.
I could be totally off on this though.

Great Score G!
not to nitpick, but make that SCJA into SCEA. People might confuse your cert with the older, discontinuted certification.
