I took the test today, and all went fine till question # 148, then all hell broke loose. I started getting 'out of resource' popups, then i could not use the mouse beyond a certain rectangle, and Prometric folks were all at sea, they had no idea what was happening as it happened first time for them. i had no choice but to skip about 10 DND questions(or more, dont know), and had to do the remaining answers by keyboard. About the test, The EJBQL questions were tough, Transaction questions were pretty simple. I think i have about 50% chance of passing if sun keeps pass score at 50%(92 questions).

I don't think the math for passing beta works that way. Sun would carry 1/3 of the questions beyond beta and you would be marked only on those questions. Hence it is very difficult to self-assess performance in Betas.
Best wishes for your success. I know beta drains anyone...
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
