To me, a guy does not speak English, during the 4 hours long exam, I was so tired that I lost my patience several times. I should encourage myself again and agin to finish it. So many English words and sentences need me to read and understand.
In fact, I don't think it is necessary for the exam to question on the same topic so many times. Maybe cut the question's number from 153 to 100 will be better. [ October 26, 2007: Message edited by: Mellon Sun ]
Adam, it looks like I made you unhappy. Is the word "tiring" means bad? I wanna tell that the exam made me tired. I don't mean the exam made me boring. I look up the dictionary, I find the word tiring. Is there another better one? By the way, no one ever told me that the beta exam is so different with the final release one on the number of questions. Happy to hear that there is only 60 questions in the final release.
No matter what reason it is, I am sorry for that. I am grateful for your work on the certification exam.
No, it's not bad :-) I just saw you complaining about the exam lenght and wanted to say it was your choice to take it. Beta exams are not for everyone, and noone takes beta whe he/she doesn't know what it is. And you seemed to be surprised about it Someone registered for you? You must have known the beta exam rules before scheduling, anyway.

This was just beta. The final exam will have 50-60 questions just like all the other Sun certification exams.
mother language... ehehehehe
