Hi,
Just back from the exam. I completed it in 3 hours and used only 15 minutes going over questions I marked. This is because I didn't want to be second-guessing myself. I mostly left my first answer. The exam is very long and it's hard to concentrate after 2 hours or so.
Overall it was what I expected from reading the various experiences reflected in other posts about experience. The drag and drop questions are a nice change from just reading code & selecting answers but they are very difficult because it's like asking you to select 6 correct answers from 60 as there are so many permutations possible

Important topics
Canvas/GameCanvas - lots of q's
GUI classes - know your class hierarchies
Connection Framework - be familiar with all the rules/classes for connections for ALL the different sections
JAD filt/Manifest - you should pick up some easy points is you study the attributes of these files
App lifecycle/ AMS etc - very important and was included in some not so obvious questions

Best of luck to all those who have still to do the exam.
bye,

The Connection questions were very thorough and asked specifically about handling connection opening conditions to a reasonable level of detail.
Don't think I can say any more than that.
