Hello,

I just recently passed the first part (IZO-807) of the OCMJEA 6 Certification Path. Barely passed it (73%). I am now on to IZO-865 and IZO-866.


1. Is my assumption correct, IZO-865 is also like creating a Design document any architect would normally do (UML diagrams, how to ensure QoS , strategies , framework selection etc.)? is that how IZO-865 is?

2. If that is how IZO-865 is like, what type of problems are those they usually give for IZO-866? I also like to clarify that this is not a take home exam right? its also like Part 1 (120 mins on the testing center) ? is this something like writing a essay (or sample speech) to convince management why this or that strategy or technology is better?

3. Where can I obtain sample problems like those that will e given in those two exams? if it is free, the better.

4. What other tips could you give?



Regards,
Andres

Yes the 1Z0-865 asks you to design an architecture using Java EE technologies using UML fulfilling functional (use case) and non-functional (QOS) requirements. Oracle gives you up to 6 months to do the assignment AND the essay (1Z0-866).

The 1Z0-866 is the essay asking you to defend your solution from 1Z0-865. Questions for this part can be predictable while you work on the solution. The essay is taken at the testing center

I'm afraid there are no sample problems. Yet the Sheil's study guide gives an example and a possible approach to tackle it.

I would suggest you refresh UML a bit and select an appropriate tool BEFORE you sign up for the assignment. This way time wouldn't be spent choosing/testing UML tool. If you feel rusty on some of the MC exam topics, I suggest you brush up on them too.

So this is sort of a "nitpicking" thing on the reviewers part and you defending your solution for IZO-865 on it?

Seems we have taken the part 1 exam at almost the same time, and will be taking part 2 and 3 too. Have you already enrolled in part2?

Welcome to the Ranch.

The essay (1Z0-866) is done at testing center. The assignment (1Z0-865) and essay TOGETHER have to be done within 6 months. As an example: say you purchased the assignment on Apr 1. You will till end of Sep (to be exact 26 weeks or 182 days) to 1) complete and submit the assignment and 2) take the essay exam.

The time between submitting the assignment and essay should be kept as short as possible so that you won't forget your assignment details.

I guess you can use the term "nitpick".

you have taken all exams of OCMJEA 5 right? im pretty sure the problems in OCMJEA 6 are no different.

They say the problems in the Cade and Shiel book closely matches the problems in IZO-865 and 866? is that true?

I have taken the OCMJEA MC exam if that's what you meant. Doing the assignment these days

The Cade and Sheil book does match the problem scope for 1Z0-865.
