Does the exam allow to review a drag and drop question? This was not allowed in the beta.

Howdy,
You know, I am not sure about that... it *might* but I don't really *think* so. If not, that's a limitation of the Prometric software, and Sun doesn't control that, although Sun can (and does) put pressure on them to improve it. I'll ask about that.
cheers,
Kathy

Hi,
Having just done the exam, I can tell you that you cannot review the drag and drop questions. If you try you get a warning dialog telling you that if you continue your previous answer will be removed and you will have to answer it again.

Yes, so that make me decided not to review any of those questions during the exam.
I think it is a important question to pass around ... you cannot review the Dran and Drop question after you answer it.

So it will indeed make the candidate more stressful in the exam. That kind of limitation should be informed to the prometric...
What about the other types of questions? Are they allowed to go back to the previous question?

Yes, all other questions are the same as you are used to from the other Java certifications - you can go back and review them without problems.

That is bad. I feel that Sun must request Prometric to change their software. Why should drag n drop not reviewable when others are?

I read in this forum that there were many beta test takers who had problems with Drag & Drop questions during the exam (mouse did not move etc). Any non-beta test takers came across the same problem? With an average of 7-10 questions, existence of this problem will make a big difference. I hope this problem is been fixed by now.

Hi Sainudheen,
I think I only had about 4 or 5 drag and drop questions, and I did not have any problems with them.
