I just completed the SCJPtest early this week and I wanted to warn those who have not yet taken the test of a pitfall that I encountered.
During the test as you go thru the questions you can skip any question and when you get done with the whole test you are presented with a recap of all questions showing those you answered, those you skipped, and those you checked for review.
The pitfall is that the Drag and Drop questions don't show any indication that you skipped them or or not.
In my case, I knew that I had skipped one or two Drag and Drop questions, so I had to go thru every one of them again to see which ones I had skipped.
Here is the killer. When you go back to review a Drag and Drop question, it doesn't show you your answer or whether or not you gave an answer, it warns you that if you open up the question again your previous answer will disappear and you will need to answer the question again from scratch.
So, I lost valuable time because I ended up re-answering from scratch every Drag and Drop question a 2nd time just to be sure that I found the 2 that I thought I had skipped.
So, be sure to take note of any Drag and Drop questions that you skip, so that you know which ones you can safely open up again without losing time by erasing previous good answers.
Good Luck, Pat Avery

I think i need that for the question lilke GC.
No you can't take your own paper and pen. They will provide you a plastic coated sheet and a marker to write on it. But make sure that you also get a duster to erase the sheet. In my exam they didn't had anything to erase the sheet so I had to restrict myself to writing as less as I can...
