Hi all,
Finally i got the result and passed SCJD. My score is 337/400. Not a great score, to be honest, i'm a bit disappointed.
Here's my breakdown:
General Considerations (maximum = 100): 90
Documentation (maximum = 70): 69
O-O Design (maximum = 30): 30
GUI (maximum = 40): 24
Locking (maximum = 80): 44
Data store (maximum = 40): 40
Network server (maximum = 40): 40

I'm not surprised to lose point in GUI as my gui is quite simple. However, i don't understand why I lost points in locking. Does anyone know how to get a detailed report on where you lost points?

If anyone watched my previous post talking about I had the wrong name of the javadoc folder in my submission. Apprently, it did not cause the automatic failure, i worried a lot about that and it seems fine.

I finished the project in about one month time, spending 5-10 hours a week. I found Andrew's book is extremly useful and I followed his book closely while doing the project.

Overall, I found the exam gives more benefits to people who are not familiar with Java than those ones who has done some java work/project before.

Congratulations!

The famous 44/80 score. It probably means they did understand how your locking works, but it didn't pass the tests.

But hey... cheer up. passing is passing, right?

you need to purchase the second part of the exam first and then register at Prometric site to set the exam date. you need to go to an authorised exam center to do the essay exam.

Congrats Ericsson !!!

As I said, if you got automatic failure, the result would be sent as soon as possible.

I'm still waiting for the result and it make me nervous as I always check my account every 2 hours in average. Maybe the assessors check my assignment after checking your assignment. How do you feel after passing the exam ?

Can you describe your locking solution ?


Wish me luck with my assignment !!!
