Hi Folks,
Probably I'm the only one that will post here with a "non-passed" status.
But �no worries�, I want to share my (bad) experience.

Won't tell u guys what to do (I'm obviously not the best guy to do so ). Instead, I'll give some advice to "how to not fall on exam".
(I wasn't that bad :S . I got 58%! You guys can imagine how upset I am.)

a) Get UPDATED stydy material.
I think its the best advice I can give you.
I got and old version from sybex book. So it did't have ANYTHING about Core Tag and EL. I had imagined it would be on test, but not that much.
I felt ready to perform the test as I got an average 80-85% on Whizlabs tests. Yes, whizlabs OLD test.
During the test i found that questions that looks really really easy, but I had no idea about the answer. Terrible!

b) Study hard on EL on Core Tags (maybe Custom Tags too). Maybe I got a wrong impression because I answered all (or almost all) of them wrongly, but seems like these "topic" are the most questioned...

c) The other topics seems to be Ok. There are a lot of boring �drag and drop� questions. Aswer them correctly at once, because if you want to review them your old answer is lost! Boring�

d) Be calm and read the questions carefully.

e) Relax and have fun

But don't worry guys: I won't give up. I'll buy a NICE book (HFS) and crash it soon!

Best Regards,

Somensari

All the best bro. I guess you are the only one to do things like this! I belive all certification exams are very easy if you know objectives and have enough knowledge & hands-on over it.

Hi,
I would appreciate your writing. Failure and Success are two sides of Coin. Now that you have failed but you have taken one step forward, by knowing the exam pattern, and have faced the real exam.
Now next time friend none of us would know how's the real exam, but you would.
Thats what you got, friend. So Celebrate for it.
And work harder, don't take it at easy.
Looking forward for your success mail
Mayank

Hi can anyone explain me at what point of time the answers will be lost.
Like
When we mark the question for review and then we try to go through the question once again(that means when we try to change the options ).

Is my understanding Okay??
Bye
