Some observations -

The exam is too long. I took breaks every 50-60 questions.
The questions seem to appear groupwise. A set of questions (10-15) on JAXP then SOAP and so on..
Lots of questions on security - encryption, digital certs, basic, digest
form etc

I had been preparing for the SCBCD and that helped a bit, especially
on the questions on architecture.

My best wishes to all those appearing for the exam !!
