As mentioned before, I took the test before. Generally, I feel it is difficult, especially for the first 100 questions. It totally has 163 questions, 5 hours. I use 4 hrs and 15 minutes to finish it.
12 questions on design patterns; a lot of tricky questions on EL and customer tags; a lot of questions you need read code; several tricky questions on jstl; 70-80 tranditional questions -- questions covered by old exam, which is relatively easier.
I'll give you guys more tips, but not today -- today is chinese new year!

Are the questions covered by old exam objectives from Servlet portion? Is there anything new in Servlet part of the exam?
Thanks for your tips...

I am not quitely sure of the old exam objectives. But equiped with:
1. The event listener on ServeletContext, HttpSession. For me myself, there is no question on event listener of Request, but there are several on HttpSessionBindingListener.
2. The "property-group" is also tested, watch out the EL and scriptlet definition in DD.
3. There are about 5 questions of DD on web Secutity.
......
I can give you tips like these now, based on my remember...

I'm confused - I got 4 hours, while you got 5 hours...
4 hours was enough for me, but the diffrence is strange...
I also should add that patterns questions are very tricky and a little bit ambigous.

For me, it's 300 minutes indeed.
Yeap, the pattern questions are not as simple as I expected. But for me, it's ok.
The weakness for me is the EL and JSTL. They are unexpected complex and tricky. Frankly, I didn't use them before, except coded some example while studying. But, be prepared questions on these syntax details, and a lot of code for you to read.
I guess the examiners have put almost all thier time on the "new part" of Sevelet2.4 and JSP2.0 and JSTL1.1. So, the questions on "new part" are much more difficult than the "tranditional part".
