I just finished submitting Part two (IZ0-865) of my certification exam. They said I can go for IZ0-866 right away. Really? but I thought exam IZ0-866 would have questions based on the assignment I submitted for IZ0-865? if thats the case, I should wait for them to review part two of my exam first before I take IZ0-866? so they could formulate questions based on what I submitted. Just a little confused on this. Would the questions on IZ0-866 be generic questions and not related to the assignment I submitted?

The questions are generic. The human grading your exam grades both parts 2 and 3 together and you get a combined score. The idea is to show:
1) You did the assignment yourself
2) You can explain design decisions that you made

Thanks for the information Jeanne.

Just a follow up question. Is it ok to have something like a month or two layoff between my submission of part 2 and taking part 3? I got suddenly busy with work so I don't have the time right now to take part 3 asap.

Bumping this thread.

Can anyone else answer my follow up question?

Hi Andres

It is ok to have some time off between part 2 and 3. However, too long isn't good I think because you may need to review your assignment before your part 3 essay.

By the way, how many essay questions does part 3 usually have? do they all have anything to do with the assignment you submitted? or is part 3 just like part 1 but essay style?

The part 3 essay questions are in what else essay form, open-ended questions.

I think there are 8 questions, asking general stuff about your assignment such as security, availability ... NFR really, what tech you used and why....

Nothing hard if you did your own assignment.
