How to report errors in exam questions to Oracle?

Hi,
I've just passed EJB 3.1 exam with 95% During the exam I noticed few errors in questions, for instance:



is an obvious compilation error, but all the answers were asuming that code will compile and run.

I would like to report those issues to Oracle (or Pearson VUE?), but I couldn't find any information about how to do it (IMHO their website is quite bad).

Has anyone got any experience with similar case?

Hi

Under normal circumstances you will get a kit that contains a lot of more or less things (e.g. your certification on paper, a pin, etc ). This kit also contains a paper form where you are asked if everything was OK and if not you can report this.
But, are you sure that the code snippet contains an error ?
The other aspect, please be careful, you are not allowed to expose in public details about the exam and because you acknowledge this (not expose details) before you start the exam.

Best Regards,
Mihai

Yeah, you've nailed it. It's a great shame that in the production version of exams you can still bump into mistakes, misspellings or disambiguation...

I also remember the error Tomasz is talking about (primitive used in generics).

Oh and by the way - gratulacje Tomasz! :-)
