Hi,while reviewing Certification Resut Forum i saw that some fellow SCJP ranchers are claiming that there were some wrong question/s in SCJP.Wrong in this sense, one have to select 2 optios & only one is correct.

Most likely the question was correct. But since you don't get an explanation at the end of the exam, you will never know. The questions for the Sun exam are reviewed by experts, so I doubt there are questions that are wrong.
On the beginning of my exam, I had a question that said choose the two correct answers. I knew only one was correct. After about the 3rd time going over the question , I noticed the button that said "more". I clicked it and there was the other answer hidden from my view. Needless to say, I only did that once. I was given the test on a 14" monitor, which is much different than my dual monitor setup that I work on (21" and 17").

Hello,
I just passed the exam last month. I also got one question which was saying to select two options and only one was correct. I did not attempted at all that. I am sure that that question had got only one correct answer but the question was saying two options are correct. I do not know if it is possible to report about some question to sun officially. Because if it is possible I would like to report it.

I'm not saying the possibility doesn't exist, but I would say it is highly unlikely. I came across questions where I thought the same thing, but after some careful review, I would find the answer (most likely a trick type question). When I took my test, I thought for sure I scored 100%. I reviewed all my answers twice, but when I clicked finished I got 3 wrong. I would've really liked to know which ones they were.
