Congratulations. Great score! What resources did you use for Part II? Did you go for a JEE5 solution or 1.4?

Thanks.

Can you share what the essay test is talking about?

Sorry for the delay, but I was in the UK all week.

Paul - I used 1.4. I had started on my current track (SE and EE) without trying to keep up with what was on the horizon. I figured that sufficient study materials and other training material would be handy when I attempted the upgrade exams.

Mellon - The only thing I can tell you is that the essay exam is a blanket exam that could be used for anyone, but your answers will reflect YOUR design in part II. As long as you did part II and take a good look through it before you sit for part III, you'll have no problem answering the questions.

Thanks for the congrats and good luck everyone!

Also, I used StarUML to generate my UML artifacts and found it to be quite handy.

Thank You,


I showed both my session and entity beans in my class diagram and designated it through the use of the stereotype.

Congratulation!

For part 3, how many sentences or paragraphs did you use to answer each question, averagely speaking? And I guess you did not use the whole 90 minutes, right? I just want to find out how much details I will need to provide.

I would not think of it in terms of paragraphs. if I did, it would be either 2 paragraphs or one long one depending on the question. The tip I would give is to burn your component diagram into your head and draw it on your dry erase sheet that Prometric gives you right when you get it. Remember what you called your key components and capture them. That way, you have a visual aid when taking the test instead of making a mental mistake about thinking through your solution.

Hi Gopesh, My result was posted 8 days after I submitted my assignment. I'm not sure if you submit your assignment at the same pace I do, but that is where I found my actual grade. Because of an error, it took about 2 months for the certmanager site to get updated and I had to open an incident to get it cleared. Hope this helps.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
