Hi !!
I am planning to write the SCJP certification 5 (CX-310-055)and have the following queries
1. It shows on Sun Website the exam have got 60 questions and need to answer 35 of them correctly -- is that correct ??
2. Is there any negative marking
3. For Drag and Drop and questions with more than 1 correct answer how is the marking done
(for example -- If a question have got 3 correct answers and I choose 2 of them correctly , do i get 2/3(.66) or what do I get) , same holds good for drag and drop question. In the event a questio have 5 objects to drag and drop and I go 3 correctly , how much marks do I get)

It would be helpful , if somebody could answer these questions and provide a link of sun where they have the official answers would be very much appreciated.

Yes

2. Is there any negative marking



No

3. For Drag and Drop and questions with more than 1 correct answer how is the marking done



If you drag and drop all answers currently thats 1 mark. If you get even one of the dragged elements incorrectly, its 0.

Yes


No
You have to get 40 questions good. Sun has changed the mistake on the site - for SCJP6, of course
