Just checked CertView and the beta test result is available now. Sadly, I got a score of 68% missing the required 70% passing mark. Anyone passed the test? Also the Oracle test page has been updates and the test is now out of beta.

Luckily, I hit the mark and passed with 70%
I was notified by Oracle last week and already got my electronic certificate.

Luis's post (http://www.coderanch.com/t/634434/jsf/certification/impressions-exam) and Baba's (http://www.coderanch.com/t/632868/jsf/certification/JSF-beta-exam) give good ideas how the test feel like. The official test (now out of beta) will require quick responses. 87 question in 120 minutes will be rough if the real test questions are the same as the ones in the beta test.

I like Core JSF much better than the Complete Reference. I don't think any one book is enough for the test. But I failed the test. So take it with a grain of salt. Others might give you better information. Also here is the Ranch JSF link page: http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/JsfCertLinks for what it's worth.

Good luck and I believe you'll do better than me.

Are everyone's results available? I don't see mine in CertView. Am I the only one?

Nevermind... I noticed that the Testing ID in CertView is my old Sun testing id (SR...) - but in PearsonVue it was a new Oracle one (OC...). I've created a second account in CertView with the OC ID, and have my results now. 85% pass :-) Surprising, I found the beta exam really hard.

Hi everyone,

Congratulations for everyone who already got the certification.

I will pass the exam this week, So could anyone give any tips ?

And also, could you compare the level of defficulty in the exam questions with JSF questions in coderanch or stackoverflow?

Thanks in advance

Finally redeemed myself and passed the test last week with a score of 83. It took me two and half months to prepare. I mostly used Core JSF, skimmed Complete Reference once.

The test is rough. The questions are not hard, but there are 87 questions and most of them are long. Less than 20 of them can fit within one screen. I couldn't finish it and had to "educate" guess the last 10 to 15 questions...by reading the answers only .

Know/understand the life cycles. Know the syntax of navigation. No html5, only basic custom component for me. Do understand packaging of JSF applications. Use common sense or Java EE sense.

Glad it's over, need to take a break. Took too many advantages of the 20% off code this year .
