I've checked from Sun's website that the duration of the exam is 135 minutes, but if I remembered correctly when I registered for the test yesterday, the duration was 2 hrs 30 mins.
I'm confused, which is which?

The exam is 2 hours only. The extra 5 mins is the short survey from SUN.
The time with prometric consider also the center registration, and checkin, etc time.

Ohhh, ok, thanks!
BTW, regarding the short survey from Sun prior to the exams, does it actually affects the kinda questions that will appear subsequently? I remember I didn't grade myself well in threads & inner classes & the next thing I knew was I'm hit with plenty of threads & inner classes questions. In fact whichever topics that I didn't grade myself well came out a lot.

This may only hit by chance.
I think only SUN can answer this question.

The survey has absolutely NO EFFECT on the questions that you get!
