If people post all their exam results in one
forum, as is suggested at SCEA, how is one, supposed to search them?
It was very handy to be able to search SCEA
with the key words common architecture.
From this I could determine the number of
questions in each category.
Do you guys know about normalization? Hello?

I believe the main reason why Exam Results was seperated into its own forum was because the actual Studay forums (Particularly Programmer's Cert Forum, and more recently the Web Components Forum) were getting FLOODED with "I Passed/Congratulations" kind of posts. And it was getting difficult to weed through those to actually get at the real questions.
From my standpoint as bartender and as a user of the forums I find it much cleaner that way.

I don't think we give much consideration to sorting and searching when we set up a forum. After all, the program that runs this all is called Ultimate Bulletin Board, not Ultimate Indexing Schema.

Yep, you're an architect all right.

forums were getting FLOODED


I would agree with this reasoning. It's bad on
the Yahoo SCEA study group. It's half the reason
I seldom visit the Yahoo group.

Yeah, everyone has it. It makes a great paper weight.
And ok it really helped me with the SCJD and for the SCJP 1.4 Beta.

Ah so! Spritzler...
Don't just steal my thread. We need an opinion
or action.

And the reason we need to separate them is so that... what? We don't accidentally congradulate someone for passing the wrong test?

It's a fact. The BM Forum is a database.
When your working on the programmmer test,
you don't need to get a feel for the web
component developer test.
Searching the forums is a very powerful tool.
Take the enterprise architect forum for example.
If I search for part I and read all the
posts, I'll know as a group we score poorly
on the Common Architecture category.
Common Architecture is 6 of 48 questions or 12.5%
of the test. Given that this is a low scoring
category, the stuff we're studying is not meeting
the need. The stuff we're studying is the top
five books, the notes pages, the mock exams, etc.
To improve my chances of passing I need to look
elsewhere for reference material.
I'll also know I need to know what ports are the
standard ports for common communication protocols.
I'd like someone to explain to me why knowing what
port IIOP runs on, qualifies or disqualifies a
person from SCEA status. But that's another
thread.

But I read somewhere here that searching is not good here and they(moderators) are thinking to improve it OR waiting for UBB guys to improve it.
