Hi all,

yesterday evening I uploaded my assignment and I will be taking the part 3 essay exam soon.
In preparation I just read the instructions on the sun website again and I noticed this for the first time :
The essay consists of 8 questions in reference to your assignment submission.

Eight questions ? What on earth could they be asking that many questions about ?
Could any of you guys who have already taken part 3 give me some insight in what kind of questions they ask ?
Are they very detailed technical questions specifically targetted at the assignment I submitted ? Are they more general kind of questions ?
One would think that, now that the biggest part, the assignment, is over (I hope), I could relax a bit. However, I am getting nervouse about these eight questions ... Any tips are most welcome.

Regards

They ask general questions yet targetted to your assignment like usage of design patterns, jee technology etc in the assignment. A person who has done the assignment on his own and has made consious decisions about the architecture and choice of technology should be finding this simple. It is just to verify that "you" have done the assigment and that the decisions you made are justifiable.
HTH.

Basically, it is just to verify that you've done the assignment by yourself.

Don't worry too much, I think everybody who has done the assignment can answer those 8 questions, but they aren't trivial questions, it can take time up to 2 hrs to answer if you don't know the questions beforehand.

One example is what is the web framework you've used and what is the reason to use that framework?

I hope it doesn't take that long because the time limit is 90 minutes
Anyway thanks for your comments guys. I already got my voucher so I'll schedule the exam soon. Then it's only a matter of four to six weeks of stress

I took the exam, part 3, in december and the time limit was 2 hours. Which gives you 15 minutes for each question.

Keep this in mind and don't waste your time ... 2 hours sounds more than it is.
