I have been pursuing the Java Technology Certification for years. Everytime before I took the exam, I prepared for it honestly. Today, when I am doing the exam, I find that most of the questions in the real test are "known".

I downloaded a pdf document, I treat it as a normal practice questions, but it looks like they are the real exam questions.

I suppose I could get a score between 50%-70%, but I got 93% easily. Almost all the 61 questions can be found in that document which has many questions.

I feel I cheated myself. Before, every time I finished my exam and passed, I edit my profile in Java Ranch to show my new certification proudly. But this time, I feel shame. I hate that doc, I wish I never find it at all. It makes me feel that I am a cheater.

Any documents not listed at Javaranch should be seen with caution. If you find mocks not listed at Javaranch, yo0u'd better ask here how good these are.

Congrats

What is more important is your confidence that you understand the fundamentals. This will show up in your day to day work, code reviews and interviews. So, don't be disappointed. Keep applying what you had learnt to succeed in your career.

Congratulations, anyway...

But, which exam have you passed? SCEA 5 part 1?

Fortunately, with SCEA5, I took the beta exam. There was no chance to make a mistake like that.
