Thanks Everybody, for helping me out for this test.
I'm really very thankfull to HFSJ team to writing a great book.

I had scored 65% in HFSJ mock exam, means +20% in real exam (is
really true and works), I recommend every one to take this Mock exam
two days before only if you are fully prepared for exam (to evaluate
yourself before real exam). For the people who are preparing for
SCWCD Manning SCWCD Exam Study Kit is also a good reference.

My exam questions were equally distributed accross all the areas of
exam objectives. In design pattern area, 4 questions where on Service
Locator (In that area I felt that I'm anwsering wrongly as my answers
were only Service locator, I scored 100 % in that ared means I had answered
it correctly).

I have one question to the forum.

My Score card says that i scored 60 questions correctly out of 69.
That makes 87% where as my score card says that i scored 86%, 1% less
why? is this the computational mistake of the application or the
reporting system is designed that way (to show 1% less).
I want to know why is this 1 percent less .

There were 70 questions in the exam, why there is on extra (even it
says that one question doesnot has answer and will not be included)
If we include this extra question my score will be 86%.

Thank you Guys once again.

Sun kindly offers its calculation method.
You can try it:


Don't cry for 1% more or less.
86% is a great score. 87% won't make you better.
Score is not printed on the certificate anyway.

Great job !

But why BigDecimal.ROUND_DOWN

They could have used ROUND_CEILING or
ROUND_HALF_UP to help the candidates who
are on edge.

Any ways thanks buddies .

Congrats ansar!

Either way, it's a very fine score on a hard exam!

We're glad the book helped.
