Hello to all ranchers,

I just come back from my essay exam, and I completly failed one question, I won't write here the question because it is not allowed, but basically, my problem is, the question was asking "green or red?" I argued "red", with a "as far as i can remember" precaution, but when I came home I realized that the answer was "green" !!! I shouldn't have taken holidays before to go to the exam...

So I anwered three questions easily and correctly, but I totally mixed up my mind in one question, do you think I will fail?



SCJP 5, SCWCD "5", SCBCD 5, SCJD with java SE 6, SCDJWS 5

Howdy, David!

...do you think I will fail?

Honestly no, especially because you put the "as far as I can remember" note... this is just for them to see that you was really the person the coded everything, and they'll analyze the other answers too... I don't think you'll fail, and more, I think that soon you'll also be a SCJD!

Hi Roberto,

Thank for your help! What I wrote on the essay contradicts with whats in my project, but i hope that the "as far as I remember" will be enough. I see many threads of poeple who failed the assignment, but it seems that no one failed the essay exam until here. I hope I won't inaugurate it.


It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
