I lost part II and III by scoring only 68%.
I guess Sun wanted to fail me.
I never read pet store.

Actually the grading is performed by a third-party. Therefore Sun couldn't have wanted to fail you, maybe the third-party grader did though.
Don't give up. Reevaluate your design and the decisions you made. Browse thru the posts on this forum and come back with a strong submission. Success does not come without risk.

jon thompson - thanks for posting this.
I know it would be helpful to me if you posted this type of info about your experiences:
1. Here is what I did for my submission for Part II. (These are books I reviewed, the software for UML I used, brief design synopisis).
2. These are the things I did wrong(per the grader's opinion.)
3. If I had it all over to do, here is what I would do differently.
thanks jon!

Why don't you post some things about your submission, maybe we can give you some pointers on why it was weak. I am sure you can pass on your second attempt.
Read over the notes of people that passed and see how your submission compares.
I would definitely read Pet Store, not all of the source code but at least the architecture documents and see how they did things.

Hi Jon,
my $0.02
Make sure you haven't missed any domain classes from the given business domain model.
Remove any EJB interfaces (EJBHome/EJBRemote/SessionBean/EntityBean) from the class diagram if you have them. Use stereotypes instead.

You were almost there! Look at it this way. You can resubmit and you only need 2 more points to pass!!!
It looks as if you lost most of your points for your class diagram and you only got 50% on your sequence diagram. I would say review a UML book about both and then make some changes and submit again. Have an objective look at it and see why they thought it was lacking.
