ok..i just got through the exam with 62%.
not really satisfy with the outcome...
i was wondering whether the duration of the exam is 90 minutes or 120 minutes..When i bought the voucher, a lady gave me a guideline stating the time limit is 90 minutes....but when i was sitting for the exams, the software simulator started from 1.59.59 to 0.00.00 which was equivalent to 120 minutes.....i left quite a few of the questions unchecked until i went back to finish them up at the very last 30 minutes...so my concern is, did the simulator actually checked the answers i marked during the last 30 minutes or what...coz i never expected to get that low...
and i never bothered to call Sun center to check it out.....i did call the authorized center but they don't know what i was talking about...
anyone can enlighten me on this?
and one more question....should i go for sun certified java developer now or sun web component developer now....which is better and useful

Congratulations!
The exam is 120 minutes (2 hours) so there shouldn't have been any checking to see what you had done in the final 30 minutes.
As far as which certification to go after next, that really depends on what you plan to do with Java. If you're going to be building web apps and you need to know how to set up an app server and what-not, I'd say the Web Component exam would be a good bet. However, if you're going to have little interaction with things of that nature, go after the developer exam!
Best of luck in your continued studies!
