Passed the exam...on two hours of sleep. Was forced by work to stay up till 12:00a. Was forced to get up again at 3:00a and stay up. Test at 2:00p. Don't try this at home. Leave it to the professionals...er, associates.

Thanks to you Roel, with your special talent for hacking these exams and eagerness to share. Without that and especially without many practice exams it would have been impossible, for me personally (even with sleep). I appreciate it. I can't simply make use of knowledge directly on that exam for some reason, but sort of had to practice at their game a whole lot.

Way to go. I am bearing down again for this test myself. It isn't easy but I promised myself before the end of the year. Hopefully I can get this done but I too find this test to be very difficult. Good job!

Thanks, Paul. You at Enthuware played the most essential part

Blake - I've actually taken it three times over the course of about a year and a half. The first time, I didn't know just being able to write Java programs wouldn't pass you. The second time, they had changed the test the month before to be a lot less topical and so I had been studying for the wrong test basically. In retrospect the test was pretty easy before then. I missed passing that second time by a couple of points and I answered the last ten questions or so randomly because I was out of time. Plus the room was chaotic and freezing. I complained to Pearson Vue and demanded a retake because of the conditions, but they declined because I "was able to complete the test". This, the third time I was making consistent 80s on updated Enthuware, 84 on the last day test. In reviewing, what I missed was just oversights, you know, not lack of knowledge. Then with two hours of sleep...I tried to cancel but they needed 24 hours advance. I had been watching videos on Youtube about extreme military training, like SEALS where you succeed no matter what. Or die... Exhaustion no damn excuse. So I decided to have that mindset, and accomplished the mission by the skin of my teeth and got back alive
