hi friends
today i cleared scjp with 88%
i am happy but not very very much
there were almost 9 questions with multiple answers type
(obviously it was mentioned how many options to be clicked)
there were 5 questions with textbox(to type the answer)
the ones where the answer was a value of string - i typed the answer in double quotes like "abcde"
where output was desired i simply typed the output e.g. say 5
but when they gave options , they were like this
-and the output will be "0"
there were simply no instructions given whether we have to type quotes or semicolons or whatsoever
one most imp thing
at least 4 questions were there for which the text was ambiguous
well my preparations was really nice
i did khalid thrice
jqplus all tests twice
got average 85% in jqplus(but some questions are really tricky in jqplus, in actual exam questions were not tricky but ambiguous !)
got 90% in marcus green
i thought i will get more than that in the real exam
if you have any questions please reply to the post so that everybody can share what they have in mind

Test 094, IBM WID 6.0 cert
SCJP 1.2
SCBCD 1.3 Beta
SCWCD 1.4 Beta

Congratulations KS !
It is rather sad that there were no instructions about the format of the typed answers and that u had to face ambiguous questions.
Isn't anyone sure about the expected format for typed answers?
