Hello.

I would like to upgrade my SCWCD certification to EE5.

Is there any book or suggestion that I should consider specifically for the upgrade exam CX-310-084 or any information for the standard CX-310-083 exam will do?

Thanks

Renato

Thanks Hasnain for the reply but it does not address my question: all the threads were about the (very minor) differences between 081 (SCWCD 1.4) and 083 (SCWCD EE5). So far so good.

What is then the goal / focus of the NEW 084 exam to upgrade the certification? Just a bit of marketing?

The list of topic looks to me a cut and paste but the exam format is different (see below) Any clue?

084 (EE5 upgrade)
# Exam type: Multiple Choice and Drag and Drop
# Number of questions: 50
# Pass score: 72% (36 of 50 questions)
# Time limit: 150 minutes

083 (EE5)
# Exam type: Multiple Choice and Drag and Drop
# Number of questions: 69
# Pass score: 70% (49 of 69 questions)
# Time limit: 180 minutes

Well.... the upgrade exam tests on those changes/addition in the specification that were not present in the older version of the specification (guys correct me if I'm wrong).

I don't know if you had a look the following thread.

About-SCWCD-exam

Hope that helped and hope I did understand what you asked for.
Kind Regards.
Hasnain.

yes, I did (and that post is 081 vs 083, not about 084).

And that's what confuse me. Basically that post says that differences between 081 and 083 are negligible, I quote:

" the changes in the relevant specs were very minor (as Mr. Lyons has mentioned). In fact, at the time I told Sun that it didn't make sense to create a new exam"

Here now we have as well 084 that is an exam for who took in the past 081. So, what is the goal of that exam? Is it worth taking?

084 is like 083, with fewer questions. I don't think it's worth taking it if you already have SCWCD1.4.

It's ok, it's not an error, it's always displayed. If you see the message "Information updated", it should be ok. And your signature looks fine now. Thanks
