SCBCD - Problems

Certified SCBCD - 94% ...... after a month's preparation of HeadFirstEJB, Mikalai Zaikin's notes and a little Haefel + practice exams from jDiscuss.com and ejbCertificate.com.
But there are two points abt the exam that I wish to bring to notice of aspiring candidates and the Sun Certification authorities (How do I go about it?).
1) The "drag and drop" questions were *very* difficult to use. You can't "drop" a box into the slot unless you exactly align with the outline of the slot. It would have been more easier if the process worked like in the Solitaire game. If you drag the box to the area of the slot and release it, it should fit within the slot. I spent so much precious time trying to get this right.
2) The second and worse problem is review of these drag and drop questions. You cannot review your answer. If you try, your previous entry is lost!!! Of course, you get a warning this is going to happen - but this is a very inconvinient and illogical thing to happen!
I feel the GUI should have been more intelligent and user-friendly.

Congratulations!.....
I also agree with ur view about Drap & Drop questions. Maybe SUN could provide some Drap & Drop questions to practice before we actually start off with the actual exam....

Mrudula,
Congrats on a great score!
BTW Sun is looking into the D&D problems!
