I'm curious why the score matters.
Miguel: Interesting point. That assumes you have the same goals as the exam of course.
Mika: You trust those with credibility. Score is an aspect of that. I wrote up my experiences with part 1. The beginning reads:
Six weeks ago, I decided to take the SCEA 5 (Sun Certified Enterprise Architect) exam. Today I passed part one with a score 87%.
Note: I did not pay for any mock exams. I’m sure I would have scored above 90% had I done so. I don’t think paying money for a higher passing score is worth it. That isn’t learning for the sake of learning. It is learning specifically for a test.
Clearly you don't think I would have more credibility if I had paid for a mock and gotten 3% higher?
