I am about submitting my assignment. Could someone tell me what's the important things I must be careful with, and how to prepare for the essay test, because you know, I am not so confident with my English. How long is the best size of the question answer, and what the questions will be, can some nice people tell me? :roll:

Don't worry about the essay exam, it is simple and doesn't require any studying per say. Just read your design.txt before taking the test and that is all you will need.
Questions are like
Did you chose RMI or Sockets, what are their advantages or disadvantages?
How does a user pick their search criteria in your submission?
Stuff like that, in which if you did your own coding you will know easily.

The essay is really easy, if you actually did the project. I think they just want to see that you have not let someone else code your project...

Hi
Is the essay test taken at a Prometric center. If, yes do we need to book a slot for this test.
Thanks
Ravi

Yes you have to book a slot, and pay for the essay exam. So far you have only paid for the assignment.

essay exam $150

I suggest that you sign up as quickly as possible, so as to have your design 'fresh' in your mind.
All best,
