SCJD wrong project in jar?

I downloaded my project assignment last week but I was convinced I had the wrong project. The marking scheme was the following.
"General Considerations (100 points)
Documentation (70 points)
Object-orietned design (30 points)
User Interface (40 points)
Locking (80 points)
Data class (40 points)
Server (40 points)"
I thought this was the old marking scheme? I contacted Sun but got a response saying I had the correct version and the marking scheme on there web-site was wrong and being updated at The project itself even seems to have an old version 1.1.2. Anyone agree with me or is this a regular thing with Sun?

No, it's correct. Sun is getting ready to update the whole exam from what I've heard around here, but haven't done it yet. There are about 5 different versions of the URLyBird project, if that's the one you got. You can read about it in the FAQs. There is a link at the top of the forum main page. By the way, welcome to the ranch!
