Hi,
I am about to start developer cert. I thought the second part is multiple choice questions. But it seems the second part is essay question about the program you wrote. Has that been changed?
thanks,
-Ken

I took the test last Thursday, and it consisted of 5 essay questions. When you're done you with the project you won't really have to study for the test.

Thanks, so there's no more multiple choice questions? Are the essay questions related to the project?

The questions only cover design decisions you made during the development of the project. For example, one of the questions many people see involve the choice of RMI vs. Sockets. Why they chose one over the other, and advantages and disvantages of the choice. You will have to read no new material to prepare for the test. All I did was to go over the archives of the "java-dev-test" group at groups.yahoo.com to get a feel for the types of design questions that might get asked.
If you're still in the middle of developing the project I would suggest that you put away any concerns about the test till later.
