Hi all,

i am new to this forum...

I passed SCJP 2 months ago and want to prepare for the Developer exam..
I read that there are actually 2 exams required for that certificate...
but dont actually understand the second one - Essay Exam - what is that used for?
Can I pass them in different days or only simultaneously?


Any help and additional info is greatly appreciated...

Thx in advance,
Nick

You should really check out the FAQ. But, in short - the essay exam is after you've completed the programming project, in which you'll discuss choices you made and why you made them. (Basically, you alter a program, then describe why you did what you did.)

Hi Nikolai,

Just toi add to what Theodore has said, the exam is just to check that it was you who took the exam - it doesn't effect you grade.

Regards,

Jon
