Hi fellow ranchers,

I am just curious how many ranchers were able to successfully register for the SCEA 5 beta exam. Simply reply to this post if you have done so. For those who already took the exam, I hope you could give some pointers to us who are still going to take the exam. Special thanks to Cameron McKenzie who took the initiative in sharing his experience (without violating SUN's nondisclosure agreement) in the SCEA 5 beta exam.

Me, I am going to take the exam by next week. I promise to inform you guys how it went.

Hi,

I was able to register successfully for the exam through Prometric website. I first created an account then registered for the exam using my SUN ID.

If your local center permits it, yes. I have two local centers that have Saturday hours.

Did you mean Oct. 15? Because I believe the exam period for the beta exam is from Sept. 27 up to Oct 22 only.

Managed to register online, which some people couldn't do. I heard some people had to phone. Wrote just a few days later. A 4 hour SCEA certification exam is a long freakin' exam!

I just hope you are not wrong. If you miss part 1 of the beta exam, it also means losing the opportunity to take part 2 and 3. Remember this is a free exam but is actually worth $650 when all combined. If I were you, I will try to contact SUN about it before it's too late, since there maybe a system error during the time you registered. Most ranchers here can only schedule till Oct 22.

It seems a lot of guys around here are scheduled for Oct. 22. Well good luck.. I wish I could add more pointers about the exam, but a lot was already mentioned here in javaranch...and they did appear many times in the exam... So I guess.... I can just try to help by offering some suggestions on the how side of taking the exam...

Don't try to answer each question immediately, instead, try to categorize it first in terms of difficulty. If it is too difficult, mark it down and skip it. If you think you are going to spend a lot of time with the question, skip it. If this means skipping 50% of the questions then so be it. The main reasons why I chose this approach is that, if you try to answer every difficult question that come your way, you tend to get tired/drained easily (information overload), loose morale (specially if tough questions came in a sequence), and lastly, you tend to assume/interpret/mistake easy questions as tough questions (because somehow you tend to generalize the exam as too difficult). Being said, the rule I followed is "answer the easy ones first." Do a lot of skipping, until you reach the last question. This way, you get to have a feel of the overall exam. Another advantage of answering the easy ones first is that it builds up your confidence and morale which can help you answer the more difficult questions later. Anyways, this is just my approach... I'm just sharing... Still it's a good thing to follow whatever works for you...

Also, don't forget to take a break. They will allow you to take a break but your timer will continue to tick. It's ok, believe me, four hours is more than enough in the exam. During the break, don't think about the exam. Just try to clear your mind. It's easier to answer questions more correctly with a clear mind and when you are not under pressure.

I'm so thankful I was able to participate in the SCEA 5 Beta exam (whether I pass or fail, but of course it's better if I pass) for it helped me identify my weak areas. Many thanks to Sun

and

Good luck to all of us.

P.S. Any more ranchers who were able to register? My last count was 18, that includes me. If you haven't done so, please simply reply here.

Immediately after you end the exam, you will be informed that it will take 6 to 8 weeks before you get notified of the results. Which leads me to ask, what if you took the exam on Oct 22 and after 8 weeks, on Dec 22, you were notified that you actually passed the exam. But then, the beta period for SCEA part 2 starts on Nov 21 and ends on Dec 26, leaving you less time to work on the assignment. Does anyone have a better understanding on this?

I think everybody will be notified before Nov 21, regardless which date they took part 1.

Hi All, I need to write the SCJP5 exam. I got the voucher, while trying to register from a Prometric center, the tool asks me for a MySUNID. Who will have this MySunId? and whom to contact for the same. Prometric center is saying Sun offical centres will only be able to give the MySunID, When I call Sun center they are saying prometric centers are the one can give that ID. Any who has an exact idea of who will be able to give the MySun ID/ should I generate my self?
