Dear all,
I've taken the beta exam yesterday. I would like to share the experiences with you.
At first, there were no questions to ask you fill the blank, but there were mew style questions to match the relavant concepts, xml definition, or JSP syntax structure.
Secondly, there were about 50 questions about cusotm tag, JSTL(core), and EL. I only saw several questions about servlet.

So 1/3 of the questions are based oncustom tags and JSTL... Are all of the questions are from the exam objectives or is there any question out of exam objectives?
Any questions about Simple Tag Handler?
Thank you for sharing your XP to us..

Yeah, there were some questions about SimpleTag. I think the beta exam contains many new concepts and reduces questions about basic concepts.

Hi,
I think it's <medium>, if you really understand the concepts of JSTL and EL. Actually, I was not quite sure of many some of them, cause I just read the new scope included in 1.4 exam for one night. I deserve it.
All I can say is that if you are not familiar with EL, JSTL(core), and SimpleTag, you gonna lose many marks.

Yes, Nick... It's only about 12 hours left to take the exam... I'm still struggling with JSTL Core Tag Library... There are a lot of attributes in each action of that library... And I still have to read on Simple tag Handler more... Don't have any idea yet...
For other exam objectives, I already covered them and I'm pretty confident with those...
All the best for your exam too.. What time r u taking it? I'm on 10:00 AM...

Oh! You will sit in the exam room till 11:00P.M. Will the Prometric Center still open at that time?
Anyway, God bless you for your exam as well...
BTW, at the time of writing this post, it's only 2 and half hours needed to sit for the exam for me... :roll:

Hi Ko Ko,
One of the centers opens up till 11:30pm, and thus, I choose that center as I need to work in day time (i.e. now )
Seems when I write this message, you are already in the exam center, best wishes to you.
In addition, I have just received the result of my SCJD. Although it is not a great score, I think it is fine for me since I have only put 1 month time in it.
Best luck to both of us.
Nick.
