When you receive the system and start answering first 15 minutes will be the questions which will ask you to accept some agreement . Well the agreement is long and it is difficult to read ,when you are not in that frame of mind. You can ask for this agreement from your prometric center beforehand if they can provide the same. You will be also be asked which comfort level you are in for different topics like JSP , EL etc etc .
I choose the all levels as expert(not sure that makes difference in exams) .
It will then ask if you want alert for new product launch.etc. by email.

Then comes up the exams

There were 70 questions.(some people get 69 questions)

Just make sure you are prepared for the following.

1. when you first look at the question it will tell click on
expand "Expand" button is at the bottom . Always try to see if you have to click expand before reading the question. I have in starting tried to answer 2 question without clicking on "Expand" . The question will not make sense if you dont see what is there in expand. This is not valid for all the questions but be aware of this button.

2. for few questions there will be a task button . you have to click the "Task" button. one more window opens up which have drag and drop type of question. you can finish the question by clicking "done" button in the new window.

3. time as I remember is just enough for the exams. The exams question are very verbose and you can take your time to complete the questions. You can still be left with 10-30 minutes depending on your preparation. what i want to emphasise is dont take any question lightly. There are some hidden logic in the question. 2 hours and 15 minutes is just enough. it is not more .

4. You cannot take scribbling pads or papers to the exams. they will give some hard sheets and markers which is difficult to use(marker is too thick ) . If you can take some thin marker or sketch pen you can use these hard sheets. Most of the time you dont even need the marker but if you have a habit of writing to remember things it may make a difference.Taking blank paper to the exam place is not allowed so your pen and pencil cannot be used.

5. The place where you have confusion regarding the questions you can start eliminating the wrong option where you will be left with only few possible right answers. Choose the most correct ones. One very good thing about exams is that it will tell you if you have to choose 2 options or 3 options.That way you will not make mistake by choosing one less option and make your answer wrong.

6. prometric center will provide you water. you can take your own water. you can even ask for tea or coffee . or take your own coffee. Make sure you check where the rest room or toilet is located .

7.Go to prometric center at least 15 minutes before exams. 30-45 minutes is still better.

8.Prometric will need your photograph and one identity proof(dont worry they will ask you that beforehand)

Good luck ,
All the best to you.
