For recent exam takers - couplea questions about dragndrop

So is the problem reported in K&B still not fixed by Sun - if you review a question on drag and drop that you've already answered, the answers are cleared??

Also in a drag and drop question is the number of blanks ('drop areas'?) equal to the number of choices? or are there more blanks sometimes than is required?

Or does Sun give the right number of blanks but give you more choices than the number of blanks?

Any help appreciated ...

I emailed Sun a month ago about this. Prometric told me that they weren't going to fix the drag and drop "feature" (they told me it wasn't a bug) as they'd specifically designed it to function that way.

In K&B's sample self-test questions, some D&D questions involve leaving drop areas blank. Some also admit multiple possible correct answers. Most -- actually all, I think -- involve more choices than blanks. However, I don't know if this applies to the real exam; any veteran care to share?

Thaks Matt - if it was an ummmm 'feature' it would need to work the same way for dnd and non dnd questions and it sure don't :-)
