How did you guys find that exam?
I failed it with a score of around 2.3 I think.
I wish that won't be the case with the Sun exam.



SCJP 1.2 (89%), SCWCD 1.3 (94%), IBM 486 (90%), SCJA Beta (96%), SCEA (91% / 77%), SCEA 5 P1 (77%), SCBCD 5 (85%)

I missed the brain bench by 1 question myself while coding at work.

I.M.H.O. the sun beta-exam is harder.
However if you were JSP/SERVLET/EJB2.0 (certified web and buisness component dev) the could eliminate 1-2 choices as impossible per question.

I don't think I passed the beta, but I gave it a run for the money.

I have just taken it. Passed with 2.81 only, scored higher than 87% of all previous test takers.

It is quite different with SCDJWS and IBM 288.

Again tried JSP 1.2 --- passed 4.25 >95%; EJb 2.0 passed 4.05 >95%;
J2EE 3.49 >88%

Genrally speaking, Brainbench stuff has a different flavor than Sun's, but
Brainbench stuff is actually not bad. Just wonder why they have not made some reputation in IT industry? Or they have but I don't know?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
