Ok, I want to start off by venting. I requested a new voucher due to the extension. Since I didn't get it before Saturday (the day I was scheduled to take the exam), I went and took the exam as scheduled. Well I just got the new extened voucher in my email
Oh well. Now onto my experience.
Like everyone else has said, 174 questions...4 hours 30 minutes plus 15 minutes for the survey, making the grand total 4 hours 45 minutes. I didn't need nearly that much time (but I'm a quick test taker).
What you need to know: Know the APIs. Method signatures and parameters.Know the higherarchy (sp?) of the objects and data structers.Know XML schema and SOAP messages.There are a couple patterns questions, but if you have either the IBM OO/UML or the SCWCD, you'll be fine.There were more drag and drop questions than any other test I've taken (I had between 10 and 15). Everything from putting lines of code in order to defining higherarchy (sp?) of objects.I was happy to see that there were no fill in the blank (unlike the SCWCD).
That's all I can think of. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Good luck to all!
