I just came from from the exam. Isn't today independence day in the states?
The paper was really exhausting. I had started it at 12.45pm, right after lunch. (I had no choice, there were no more time slots). The food and the long hours nearly made me fall asleep.
After the 500th or so it seemed question on CMP, the words on the screen started to look really blurry.
As mentioned by many others, some of the questions take a long time to read and even longer to understand. The language was a little terse at times.
I had no problems with the draggy and droppy questions. The EJB-QL drag and drop questions took me a long time, because I tried to do them on the screen. If you meet those questions, don't try to solve them on the screen. There are sometimes 20+ of those boxes on one question!
Write down your answer on the paper or noteboard given and then find the appropriate boxes on the screen.
The various notes, docs and tips posted by the folks here were most helpful. Many of them were spot-on. Thanks all!
I don't think I did too well... so I guess it's all up to my luck. Will they raise the passing score for the beta(just the beta) because the limit is now 600?

It's really a pitty that the DnD questions got lost if you want to review them.
Writing them down on your notepad
I don't think this is really helpfull. Some are really complex (20+ boxes as you mentioned) and I only got on piece of notepad.
