Hi All,

Thought I may of scored around 90% when I finished, as it seemed so easy.

Instead I received a result of 79% for part 1, which I was disappointed with... my lowest to date on all exams has been 88% prior to this.

Overall this has been the most boring exam to study for to date, maybe this was my problem.

I am in no hurry to rush out to do part 2 and 3, I think as a priority I need to go and recover some personality as this studying has made me into a very boring person. I even yawn when I think about myself

Good luck to all and remember to keep a life as well as study, or you will become that be-speckled nerd, that everyone has given up inviting to social events.

I can't believe someone can complain about a score of 79%!
C'mon! You passed!!!
I'd be glad if I scored 69%!

Hi Omis,
Congratulations on passing.
A pass is a pass. Don't worry about the actual score. To pass you have to have a good all round knowledge, and you have proven that you have that.
Regards, Andrew

Hi Omis,
Congratulations on passing, 79% is not a bad score.
But i strongly disagree with you regarding the exam,
It is not boring as you said.
For me it was good learning experience, infact it was good
introduction for me to some of the topics.
But certainly it is not "BORING", as you said.
Regards

Hi,
To those that replied, thank you very much.
I guess the word �boring� came to mind for this exam, because what I was studying, I could not immediately see results in a live environment (with the exception of the odd design pattern). Compared with the more hands on java exams.
For example in studying for SCBCD
I would read about some useful trick with relationships in EJB and I would have a quick play, see it work in practice and find it interesting and learn from it.
While under SCEA
I would read for example about the �Object Mapping� theory of �legacy code� of a mainframes, that I could now access with an �off-board� server, via �tunneling� through their firewall on port 80 using JRMP, into their �Virtual Private Network�, then call the code via JNI.
Then I would think well that�s just bloody great, but how can I go through the process in practice to appreciate what is possible.... The answer was I can not and who in there right mind would do that ?.
So I found myself reading all these wonderful/bizarre and obscure scenario�s that after a while made me feel that there was some seriously over active imaginations out there.

I am hoping when I start part 2 one day, I will start to see all the waffle I had to wade through for part 1 has some applicable use.

Good luck to all.
