Cleared SCEA Part 1 about 25 minutes back in Miami FL where I live. Got 50 correct answers out of the 64 (78%). My experience is as below.
Overall Impression of the Test
Time taken to prepare for the test
My main goal when I went to the testing center was to ensure that I got my 37 correct answers and that I did not flush 300 dollars down the sinkhole. However, by the time I was attempting the 50th question, I knew that I had made it. The rest of the questions were just buffer to ensure that there was absolutely no doubt in passing.
The folks that prepared the questions have a sense of humor. Without going into the actual question in keeping with the spirit of the forum, the question said something like this...
You are trying to architect a web application to replace a legacy system which is not maintainable and has several problems. The legacy system is built using Active server pages and runs on the .NET platform.
and then went on to ask the actual question.
Now for part 2 of the assignment. I am not so much worried about the part 2 assignment since in my prior job, I used to create client proposals based on vague RFPs all the time. Part 2 is very similar I think to the creation of a proposal based on an RFP, however on a much smaller scale.
Since Oracle is yet to make part 2 available, it gives me an excuse to chill out and have some fun till then.
Have a great weekend everyone !!!
