Hi all !

After clearing very soon SCBCD I seriously consider SCEA, but I couldn't understand how its 3 parts are managed.
First part looks like a classical MCQ test at VUE/Prometrics, but what about the 2 other parts ?
Is part 2 a downloadable UML assignment you have 1 year to complete, comparable to SCJD with its downloadable Java assignment ?
And I couldn't understand what the 3rd essay part was like. Very short obvious questions comparable to SCJD last part, a real joke simply designed to check the performer was the same than the one who made the assigned program ?

Any explainations ? One of my mates, a JDO guru, said this exam was soooo difficult, but from outside it looks frankly easy. Could people comment their experience ?

Best regards.

Part 1 is multiple choice exam.
Part II is assignment. It is not UML assignment. You use UML for moelling your system design.
Part III is essay type. Here mostly you have to explain your design choices.
I can not say whether it is really dificult or not but it surely changes your focus from development to Architecture.
