i am taking scjp (310-065) this month end and this is the very first certification exam i am taking. although i have read about certfication of this subjects, i have some doubts... people who have passed please help:
1. first BIG question, if i FAIL in first attempt will i get another another free attempt? or will all my money vanishes in thin air?
2. while answering multiple correct answers, will the question tell you how many correct answers you have to check?
3. if suppose there are 2 correct answers to be checked,what if i check 1 correct answer and for worse 1 wrong answer? will 1 correct and 1 wrong answer cancel each other and the score is 0, or will get half marks for correct one?
4. and one final question: who have passed scjp, how well you descrbe yourself about your java knowledge? what i mean is do you are like-"just ask me anything in java i will just shoot the answer, java i my second instinct" or do scratch your head and stare at the question when object is created with superclass reference and thrown here and there, into the tunnels of arrays, methods without mercy and you think yourself "what i have done to my life?"
"...and i am from India and no clue what is Priority code, i guess i dont have free retake..."
I have just ordered SCJP voucher for $300 (in USA) and I got the free-retake offer. (I strongly feel that I don't use the retake :-) )
It is not valid in India. I am not sure the cost of SCJP voucher in india, but, I am sure its not as much as in USA (Rs.15,000 or $300).
Priotity Code: (Not valid in India)
when you checkout the order, provide the code "WW39CX1" or whatever mentioned in the site.
