*MY* first sample question (EJB-QL)

This would be testing your ability to create an EJB QL query. This looks a lot better as a drag and drop, but you should get the idea. Hopefully the formatting won't be too horrific here:

As an explanation, on the test you would get to select from the query items at the bottom, and place them in the spots after the SELECT/FROM/WHERE key words. Like it says, any correct answer will be accepted (obviously anything with an AND has at least two ways of doing it - both perfectly acceptable.)
Hope this is useful!
Kathy and Bert, feel free to use that in the book

yuck at the formatting ... sorry about that, still getting used to posting at the ranch, here!
I hope it's still useful and gets the point across!

I hope the 'CODE' tags are ok for that.

Well, the other way round is exchangin the places of salary and gender.
This one is nice I almost saw myself dragging those answers. Is it a good idea for visual query builder? Nigh, Redmond guys did it before, no more 'cool stuff'
Thanks Kimberly Now give us the toughest EJB-QL question you have so we can know the spread >

Great job answering that one!
Although you seemed to find that easy, I'm not sure that would be considered similar to the the easiest of the EJB-QL questions; although I argued during the process that I didn't think that sort of thing was too tough at all, if you knew what you were doing.
I thought the drag and drop gave a great opportunity to really test this stuff here - I'm glad it translated even with the crappy formatting
I'll try to come up with one or more representative additional questions later if this is proving helpful.
