Can't say I'm proud but the women at Prometric said that during 20 years she had never seen someone get a score dead on the pass mark.

I managed to achieved such a dreadful score in 2 weeks revision using:

- Mikalai Zaikin notes: http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ (many thanks)
- Whizz Labs Mock exams (Which gave me a false sense of security)
- Head First Design Patterns
- Core J2EE Patterns
- And internet research

I personally thought there were not many questions on Patterns which I had spent most of my time studying.

Now onto Part 2. I've just purchased the assignment which I must say is a terrible user experience. Sun Training should sort this out. I'm currently living in Australia so have to use Sun Partner AOMIT as Suns ecommerce site does not work!

I've got a few questions regarding Part 2 and 3 which hopefully someone can help:

1) How detailed should the UML diagrams be? I've read UML Distilled which states using UML as a Sketch, Blue Print or Programming language. Which one are the assessors expecting?

2) Is there a test assignment solution knocking about somewhere which I can use as a guide for the deliverables ? E.g. UML notation, non functional requirements

3) Can you take the part 3 exam before part 2 is marked? Is part 3 a set of generic questions about the assignment or specific to your solution?

Many thanks in advance

Low score but you passed anyways, congratulations.
You said you did not get too many questions on design patterns, so in which other areas did you get questions ?
