I have finally achieved the OCMJEA 5 (Dreamcar assignment) certification. Here are the significant milestones in my journey:

09-MAY-11 - Took the part 1 exam, passed.
25-AUG-11 - Submitted the part 2 assignment.
26-AUG-11 - Took the part 3 essay.
04-DEC-11 - Received email informing that I failed part 2. My overall marks exceeded the minimum score but I failed in my class and deployment diagrams.
01-JAN-12 - Resubmitted part 2 assignment.
23-FEB-12 - Received passing score report at Pearson Vue's website.

It was a long and tough journey, but in the end, I believe was all worth it.
