Just passed SCWDC 84% but ...

I was surprised to see 3 questions on ejb/resource-related deployment-descriptor elements, which I thought were not covered in the exam and 4 questions on Design patterns (not my best subject - I'm still confused between ServiceLocator and BusinessDelegate )

There were also 3 questions on classic tags but none on SimpleTags.

I was also believed you only had to get 59% (that's what it stated on Sun's site) so I was a little suprised to see 62% as the passing score on the final print-out. Has the exam format changed recently?

Anyway, I passed, despite being a bit out of date and that's the main thing, now time for some before

regards,


Dave

PS: I used HFJS, jsp/servlet specs , this forum (many thanks!) and lots of mocke exams to fill in gaps,

Congratulations

which I thought were not covered in the exam

Next time, don't assume anything, and ask at the ranch

not my best subject - I'm still confused between ServiceLocator and BusinessDelegate

You should have read Marc's document to get 100%

No, you're looking at the wrong place. If you were looking at the following, you'd see that it's 62%.

It's not been changed recently. You've read the wrong page. 59% is the passing score for SCJP.

Well, you are right: I also found something related to external references to ejb-local and similar stuff... I had to memorize them without knowing what I was speaking of (SCBCD is my next target )
