Hi guys
Just gave the original exam and scored 90%. There was one question for which the software was unable to show the diagram and it kept giving an error message. so really speaking the score is (63/69) and I am sure I will fight for my 1 point even if that requires a 1000 attorneys.
Coming to tips:
1) EJB-QL questions are not as simple as stated everywhere. So make sure u know inside out about them. Preferrably read the spec line by line.
2)While answering the drag n drop questions make sure u drag the mouse and release it when u see a sign of a white square on the mouse pointer. Otherwise u will spend the 2hrs dragging the mouse.
3)reviewing the drag n drop questions was a problem coz it resets the answer so make sure u take an extra time and try to make the best guess at the first attempt.
4)Transaction related questions were complex so read the spec for that.

Sudhir,
Congratulations! great job!
Can you tell
a) what % you got in the HF mock exam?
b) how complex the actual questions are compared to questions in HF ?
c) do we need to show the SCJP certificate before taking the exam?
Thanks,
Prasad

Thank You guys!!!
Coming to the HF Mock exam I scored (54/60) and I pointed errors in ques nos: 49 & 57 on this forum.
I had the impression that the real exam is very easy. I was pounded with 5 difficult EJB-QL questions at the beginning which really made me feel dizzy. other than that the questions were at par with the HF Mock exam.
No we don't need to show the SCJP certificate. I guess the SUN people check that before issuing the voucher.

Congratulations Sudhir!
That was a good feedback on the drag n drop questions!
