Appeared the exam a few hours ago. The exam was not easy, especially for me as I don't have any project experience on EJB. There are lots of questions regarding the interfaces, classes, exceptions and deployment descriptor etc. Knowing the syntaxes or hands on practice is needed. And I also could not answer a few Drag and Drop questions like you all, even though my PC O/S was Windows 2000 Professional. I was in time pressure from the very beginning, but I think that was only because I took lot time for the first 20/30 questions. I did not get bored or tired during the exam as it was a very interesting exam experience. I used logical approach rather than trying to remember points in many quesetions. Even during time pressure I put comments on a few questions.
I only went through Ed Roman's book (first 11 chapters) and had a two hours' quick look at spec morning today. But I encourage others to go through the spec for a week (you can't afford to wait one week from now if you don't want to loose the train for 400 passengers ). During my preparation I followed the ranch discussions and collected them in a single document with mocks and related info for all our's sake. It was helpful for me to understand the topics within a short time.
Best of luck to my following exam-takers.

what do you mean when u say could not answer ?
does the system crash if you attempt ?
is there any option to save the test you attempted so far, before trying to attempt dnd question ?
can I skip dnd questions, save test, and then attempt them ??

In two questions simply DnD did not work. But nothing to worry, there are 183 qs and possibly around 30 DnD. After answering 2/3 DnD, you'll understand the easy rule. You can mark for review, skip DnD questions or later come to change but changing a DnD means that question have to answered again.

I'm pretty sure you've learned a lot in your preparation process. Also thanks for your study materials. Excellent jobs!

" did not work " should be ok
the point is, the system should not crash
or else 4 hours would have to be invested again

An I also missed 4/5 DnD questions that I could not drag/move to the right position. I thought this is the natural software bug, but I find here many people did not face that problem. Then probably I misunderstood on how to drag and drop in a few questions.

For me also, it happened for 3 to 4 quuestions. It says some " out of system resources"... Any how I skipped those questions with some comments.. Must be a bug in test software.. Hope , they will be taken care in the real exam
