Hi,
I did the essay test three weeks ago. Today they announced the score.
Here is the detail:
The maximum possible number of points is 155; the minimum to pass is 124.
Section Summary Report:
General Considerations: 58/58
Documentation: 20/20
GUI: 24/10
Server: 53/53
Total: 155/141
Certification Score=141
As you can see, all the points I lost are on GUI. I know why I lost the points.
1. no exit button ( I only have the default window close icon).
2. no confirmation when application exits.
3. not following traditional GUI's design ( with menu bar and etc.)
To be safe, please use windows application gui as an example.
I just want to point it out so others who are working on it can avoid the mistakes I made. I personally think they are pushing the limit on GUI (these are not required in the doc), since this is the most obvious thing they can check. It is a little hard for me to use a very strict design on GUI whereas we are encouraged to ignore many little details on distribution, security and etc.
Well,at least I learned to follow conventions next time.
Good luck

Kent, I did not follow what this meant. Does this mean that you had an icon in place of a button to perform window closing?

No. I simply rely on the default windows close icon (the little cross at the up right corner). I used a windows event listener to clean up the resource.
