Passed SCEA part 2/3 with 70

Hi all,

I'm a long-time reader of this board and it's been very helpful to me in preparing for part 1 and part 2/3, so thank you all.

Passed part 1 in Feb. with 91%, was pretty pleased with that.

Just got results for part 2/3 today and boy did I just make it - 70%. Thought I did better. Breakdown here:

Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 36
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 22
Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12

So basically I sucked at the component diagrams, that's where I lost most of the marks. I thought I had everything OK, my solution was fairly standard I thought. However I think my submission just had too much stuff in it, I think I went a bit overboard.

Another thing I think might be relevant (but since there's no feedback, who knows?) is that I largely fudged the issue of integration of FF system due to what I took as incomplete/contradictory requirements.

Anyway, happy I've made it.

Congrats Fran.

For Part III,

1)Are the questions based on Part II assignment given to an individual?

Meaning the questions will be strictly related to the assignment given(e.g. why was a particular design decision made etc. )

Or they will be in general anything related with SCEA knowledge (e.g. (a)which are the situations to use CORBA and which are situations to use RMI (b) what are options for legacy connectivity )

2)Are the answers expected in great details?

thanks -
