Part 2 and Part 3

Hi all
I have a few queries regarding Part 2 and Part 3:
Would like to know if Part 3 contains (1) generic questions on the part 2 design or (2) specific tailored questions to each individual submission based on you have designed in Part 2.
Why I asked this is because I'm thinking of submitting the part 2 and take the part 3 within the next 3-4 hours. If it's (1), then it should be okay but if it's (2), then I guess I need to wait for a few days before I can take part 3.
Anyone who has completed all 3 parts like to share his experiences ?

Since I have taken the SCJD I can say that (1) in the above statment is correct.

The questions are fairly generic- if you have done the assignment- it would be very easy. You do not have to prepare or anything.

So does this mean that I can simply upload the assignment solutions and take the part 3 immediately, say within 3-4 hours ?

You have first to wait Sun to score your part II !!!
It takes 3-4 weeks after your upload.

Hi herve attia
You mean after uploading part 2, I need to wait for 3-4 weeks before I can take Part 3 ?
From what I heard so far, I don't think anyone needs to wait so long.
What I want to know is whether I can proceed to take part 3 shortly (say within 3-4 hours) after I have uploaded part 2. I need to do part 3 quickly as my boss would not allow me to take a day off.

Well you make me confused now !!
....maybe you are right ?!!.....
STEP 2 mentions :
--Prerequisites:Successful completion of the multiple-choice exam
--Pass score:70%,subject to the evaluation of the essay exam and validation of the authenticity of the assignment
STEP 3
--Prerequisites:Successful completion of the multiple-choice exam and submission of the architecture and design project
--Pass score:N/A

...means that SUN needs part III to score your assignment part II?!!
In my mind, I thought PartIII will ask some personalized questions on your assignment...but it seems not !!
Well , these process could cost us a lot of money if we fail assigment part II...Sun forces you to pay $150 part III !!! Enjoy !!

Well if you look at old threads (search on part 3)like http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum26/HTML/000331.html http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum26/HTML/000288.html
it seems that Herve is right with his last post:
You submit part II, and then you can take right away part III... but it takes 1 month to get the results

Chris is right. You can take part 3 immediatly after upload. The results can take at least a month.
