Hi folks,

Today I've submitted my assignment (holy christ 2 weeks of terror crawling all the links in google and a lot of discussions with good friends), and I'm free to 1z0-866 exam now.

In my Bambara's book, they uses the following list of questions about the assignment:

How does your design handle Availability?
How does your design handle Reliability?
How does your design handle Scalability?
How does your design handle Performance?
How does your design handle Security?
How does your design handle Extensibility?
How does your design handle Maintainability?
How does your design handle Manageability?
How does your design handle Persistence?
How does your design handle the Presentation Tier?

My question in: are those real questions? Where can I get the real questions, since it's not a secret? I wanna spend some time writing them before the exam.

Best!

Sergio.

Essay questions are predictable for the EA cert. Just a matter of which you will get.

If you did cater these NFR then essay part should be easy.

Also the wait days between assignment submission and essay exam should be kept to a minimal so you won't forget your assignment.

Oracle won't look at your submission until you do the essay.

Good luck

Hey Sergio,

The wording will be slightly different and also several questions can be combined in one, like "how your solution handles availability and reliability", which is OK, since these two quality attributes are closely tied.
Otherwise, if you prepare by questions from Bambara book, you'll be fine.

It's ok to practice writing a bit, to get your ideas in order. I would just recommend reading all of the questions in the test before writing a single word. You will find that an issue that could be addressed in an earlier question, should be better addressed in a later question. In this test, time management is key, and you don't want to waste time typing over and over the same information.
