drag and drop questions in the exam - why are they reset

I sat my SCJP 1.5 exam yesterday and passed.

The format/layout of the questions in the 'real' exam is way better than any mock exams I have looked at with one exception.

If you attempt to review any drag and drop questions then your original answer is lost. Does anyone know why the exam has been implemented with that as a 'feature'?
It seems to discourage the exam candidate from double checking their answers.

Other than that I found the format of the real questions easy to use. ie you can view the code in one big block - no need for scrolling.

First of all congratulations on passing your exam.

I think you're asking a very good question, I passed my exam a few weeks back, but I was annoyed by the way these drag & drop questions work with respect to reviewing them.

its a known bug.
I recommend to you write on a paper the results if you dont want to loose them =P
Write the initial letters/numbers that can ben enough to make you remember so you don't loose time.

by the way, congrats on passing.
