we'll we be allowed to use pen and paper?

He all,

I have a hard time finding out if we'll be able to use pen and paper for OCPJWCD exam? A while back for my SJCP exam I asked invigilator for a pen and she looked at me suspiciously and gave me a kind of pen that you write on the board with, so based on this experience I thought it was like she went extra mile helping me or something.

Will pens and blank papers be allowed on OCPJWCD?

Thanks,
Victor.

Just spoke with test center and they said they provide erasable white board and a pen for this exam. In case if anybody is interested.

Actually, I'd like to bring this topic to a wider discussion. I wrote my SJCP exam 4 years ago and invigilator gave me a board and thick pen to write with.

It was nearly impossible to write code segments with that equipment and sort of weird too. So ended up doing all my questions for SJCP in my head. I passed it but barely because I just couldn't work with that awkward writing equipment.

While studying for OCPJWCD, it looks like it will be better to work out code samples, like EL questions, on pen paper. I spoke with Pearson 2 times and they say normal pen and paper are against exam policy. I personally think it's ridiculous. Why can't blank pen and paper be used is beyond me.

I am a 3rd year Computing Science student at SFU and it's been most typical thing to have blank paper to work out problems on exams. But board and eraseable pen? Am I the only one who find it a little weird? Is there anything we can do about it, perhaps ask exam officials to change this policy?

Thanks,
Victor.
