All,

Am a silent observer of this group and I would like to inform you that I have passed Part-I SCEA a couple of days back with 79%. Though not really happy with this score, I just wanted to say that I've completed Part 1.

The time was just sufficient for me to complete the test as this was having many exhibits and looong descriptive scenearios, which took more time to understand.

By the way, THANKS VERY MUCH to every body for all your valuable tips/ guidance/ support.

Hi Socrates,

How do you compare the difficulty level of the actual exam with Whizlabs/ other commercial mock tests available?

Thanks every body for all your wishes.

I prepared in an average 2 hours daily for a month and half and before exam I spent around 5-6 hours/day for 2 days.

Gone through various materials downloads and mock exams that was provided in this site by various well-wishers and took notes of important points and the area of weekness.

When it comes to 'Design Patterns', I read the questions 2-3 times as I was weak in this area and tried to look for the keywords in the question during preparation phase. Then tried to map the scenario with answers/options provided. That helped me a lot initially and I came to condition where I can map any scenarios to its corresponding design patterns exactly. Even in the exam, I could get 100% on Design Pattern.

As far as Whizlab material is concerned, it will aid you to some extent. But the real exam is somewhat different than Whizlab's one. The wording, scneario, exhibits were really different in the real exam. In fact your exeperience also is counted to answer some questions.

The time was just sufficient to finish the exam, as I said earlier. During exam, if you feel any question is tough and/or you have doubt, just 'Mark' it and proceed to next questions. After answering a couple of well known questions correctly, you will be relieved from mental pressure and could able to think peacefully and answer the 'Marked questions'.
