Exam at prometric center

Hello,

I'm sorry to bring this subject again, but i need confirmation.

I plan to pass the part 3 of the SCEA exam in the next wednesday 25 May in a prometric center, and submit the assignment jar the same day to architect-submit_US@oracle.com.

I intend to schedule an appointment and indeed i see that the 23,24,25,26,27 (and 30-31 i'm not sure) are still available while you can't choose nothing after.

So i was hoping if you can confirm that is OK ?

(PS : I will take Monday and Thursday off to force myself to complete )

Thank you,
Will Myers

Yes it's fine, Prometric up to and including 31st May then Pearson Vue from then on.

I am doing exactly the same thing except my part 3 exam is at 16:45 on the 31st, the last available Prometric slot

What about the risks and mitigations, have you think about it, do you :
-The PC used shutdown.
-The network of the center fall down.


Happy to hear that, thank you very much and good luck.

As i sayed, i have indeed scheduled the exam for wednesday, but now i'm facing a big problem.

When i have passed the SCJP, SCWCD and the SCEA Part 1, i was simply buying a voucher and calling a test center to schedule a time, i simply give them my name and passed the exam, i have never deal directly with the prometric site.

I wanted to do same for the part 2, but couldn't find any voucher, the voucher's sellers are themself facing problems with the new policies and they tell me to wait 2 weeks, but i can't, becausei want to avoid having to deal with PearsonVUE...

So i created an account in prometric web site, there is a field where you indicate an existing prometric ID, i do indicate mine, and scheduled the exam by paying directly with credit card infos, all seems alright, i have received a confirmation mail, but was badly surprised when i see another Prometric Testing Id , and indeed, when seeing my personnal info, i have a different Prometric Id. To be sure that i have'nt input wrong data, i have created one other account(with another mail address), and end with a new Prometric Id in my personal info . The exam is still scheduled, and actually i think when i pass it, Oracle could not match between the assignement 2 and the Part 3.

I'm really afraid, have anyone experienced this problem ? (I have send a mail to Prometric and waiting for a feedback)

I have finally cancel it, so be aware, when you create a new Prometric account, the field existing Prometric ID don't seem have any effect ! Because anyway you will be assigned a new one !

I have scheduled my Part 3 with Prometric and it's showing my original candidate Id so I think, I am good.

What kind of preparation do we need to do for part3?

Hello Rajan,
I have found a thread but don't remember the exact title, it was diary of someone who already success, he sayed(i have copy his advice) :


There are many resources for people on SCEA Part i & II, Let me post some helpful tips on Part III.

I am not giving out what questions were asked, I am going to tell how I prepared and the questions came from what I prepared for.

I partially prepared for Part III, when dong Part II.
I questioned my self ... and made notes.

1) How does your design handle Scalability?
2) How does your design handle performance?
3) How does your design handle security?
4) How does your design handle Reliability?
5) How does your design handle Availability?
6) How does your design handle Extensibility?
7) How does your design handle Manageability?
8) How does your design handle Maintainability?

Each of the below question also ask , "Why did you choose?"

1) How does your design support session/state handling?
2) How does your design handle persistence?
3) How does your client tier talk to business tier?
4) How does your design handle Qos 5 Sec in peak time?
5) How does your design handle transactions?
6) How does your design handle authentication and authorization?

All four questions I got are covered.
Good luck all!


Apparantly it was 4 questions, but now it is 8.

Thank you,


I am planning to submit my Part 2 assignment online. I bought the voucher in June 2010 and suddenly awoke in April 2011 that I should submit it before Jun 2011 :-) So planning to do it sometime this week. However do I need to buy a separate coupon / voucher for Part 3? Then I can buy a voucher and do the Part 3 on Pearson in June 1st week. Unless I am ready to do it early next week 30 & 31st May then I can reuse the same voucher and go to Prometric. I can do that right? Sound silly question but want to confirm.\

Saurabh,

Your question is not 100% clear to me so let me answer this way. If you had bought voucher in June 2010 and you have already used the same voucher for downloading the assignment then that voucher is already used and can not be reused for part 3. You will have to submit your assignment before the voucher expires (June 2011, see the exact dates).

In your case, I would strongly recommend to take part 3 ASAP as your part2 is going to expire soon. Remember, part 2 can not be picked by Oracle for grading until you take your part3 exam.

If the voucher (you bought last year) has not been used then you can use it for part3 before it expires. If the voucher was already used for downloading the project then you need spend $300 more for part3. You can pay directly to Prometric (before 31st May) while taking the appointment.

Thanks Rajan. I paid $300 for the SCEA Part 2 to download the assignment. Ok I need to shell out another $300 for the Part 3. I have the exact dates June 1st 2010 was the purchase date. I do not have an expiration date but I am forcing / assuming myself it is 1 year. I want to be an SCEA. :-)

3) How does your client tier talk to business tier?
