Objective-wise weightage

Hi,

Is there anyway we can calculate the percentage distribution of actual questions based on objectives?

For example:
Objective 1 - 15%
Objective 2 - 25%
etc..

Any help is greatly appreciated

I have tried to make something up, but keep in mind that this is NOT official, it's just what I can remember from the beta exam:

Objective 1: 5%
Objective 2: 10%
Objective 3: 10%
Objective 4: 11%
Objective 5: 9%
Objective 6: 7%
Objective 7: 7%
Objective 8: 9%
Objective 9: 11%
Objective 10: 11%
Objective 11: 11%

Thanks Val. That helps me understand at a high level what the distribution is.

I agree that it needs some editing to match the current exam objectives.

Hi Valentin,

Could you reflect this option to Kathy and Bert?

I like IBM's objectives because it defines how many % coverage (which implies how many questions I could see for each section in the exam). Sun does not provide such info.

However, I feel IBM's objectives are too general. You might not know what to study.
