Hello,
Can someone please let me know how close the sample ICE test scales to the actual exam.
More specifically,
1) What is the length of scenario-based exhibits of the real exam w.r.t the sample one?
2) Is the % of scenario-based questions(out of the total no. of questions) of the real exam same as the sample one?
3) What about the difficulty of the questions, w.r.t ambiguity in the question?
4) Are the testing conditions the same (37/56 correct answers in 135 minutes).
5) What will be % we attain when we take the sample test for the first time, scale to our results in the real one (some rough assessment)
Thanks,
Jayadev.

Thanks for the info. I started reading Larman's book on UML and patterns. Finding it to be very rigorous and exhaustive. I took the sample test a month back and could barely get through. Hence i was interested in knowing the toughness level.

The following is the link which Don's signature points to -

I guess the sample test questions haven't change since Don posted 100% correct answers.
