Just passed the exam 15 mins ago. 85%, a little higher than expected, I am happy enough.
Most important of all, for those who are taking the exam soon, be sure to get enough rest, I was a bit tired and did affect my performance a little. The questions are mostly very specific and you MUST look at every single word. One single word can make a huge difference in your answers.
Your next exam should be the developer one, then the business-component one. Trust me, the developer is the only one that proves you can develop an application. All these other exams prove you have a good sense of logic and a good memory, but the developer one will actually prove you can apply those skills to a real problem.
