Does any one have answers to Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Services (CX-310-220) Free Proficiency Assessment System? It sounds very stupid giving the test without knowing what went wrong and the solution!

hi, Ionut Bucurescu. If I may ask, where did those answers come from?

Of course from the assessment. I got a good score and then figured out the other answers and verified them.

It's not a test - it's an assessment. The point is not to give you feedback on what precisely you do or do not know. The point is to give you feedback on how sure you are about answering exam questions. If you're not feeling sure about a number of questions/answers, then that's an indication that more study is required.

I believe since we are answering all other product and test related questions this is in no way illegal to share. There is no agreement that we should not be discussing the assessment questions.

Knowledge increases with sharing.

Thanks

If you can point us to some URL where it states that, or where there's general information about these assessments that state the rules, I'd be more than happy to restore the questions and answers.

But we won't tolerate it here if it's illegal. That's what we're trying to find out.

I agree with Vyas. When doing the assessment there was no disclaimer or copyright restrictions. The assessment starting page http://www.sun.com/training/certification/assessment/220-Jintro.jsp also does not provide any information on this matter.

The very fact that there is no screen where we click "I Agree" (unlike the SCDJWS test) proves this!

It is similar to answering and sharing information about other licensed products like K&B, enthuware, Whizlabs?

But we won't tolerate it here if it's illegal. That's what we're trying to find out.



Sure, I agree with you. Please let us know if it is legal to discuss about SCDJWS and the assessment.

im just hoping that it'll turn out to be legal, correct answers on that assessment can help with my limited study time. hopefully more tests with the kind would be out before next week since there are no reviewers out in the market yet.

and Ulf, i think that is a responsible move holding the answers back until sharing them proves to be legal.

just my 2 cents.

Did you find any information Ulf?

In the SCJP forums of JavaRanch you will find people sharing assessment answers.

So in the interest of all I think we should open up the answers until we have any "CONCRETE" proof that it is protected by law.

To be on the safer side and also in the interest of all, lets not open up the answers until we land with a conclusion.
