Do they give you access to your submitted solution at the test center and, if not, can I/should I bring my own copy.
It seems like a handy thing to have when you are trying to defend your solution....

No, they do not give you access to your solution. They do not allow you to take the solution (or any other paperwork) in with you.

The purpose of the exam is to prove that you wrote the assignment you submitted. They are not trick questions, and you are not really defending your decisions. But you are supposed to know what the decisions are.

As such, a question such as "Did you use Visual Basic or Java" should be something that you should be able to answer quickly and easily. But if a cheater was able to take the submission with them, then they could look up the answer to that question while there.

Thanks Andrew, I had no idea it was that easy. I thought I had to explain and justify the architectural and design decisions.

You do. But they aren't detailed low level decisions. Nobody is asking why you picked a certain multiplicity. It's more like "how did you account for database access." And non functional requirements. All things you would know off the top of your head.
