Just received my score report!

Thanks Pradip!!!

I got 69 questions correct out of 72 questions! It is totally out of my expectation!

I got 91% in the section Declarations, Initialization and Scoping and 80% only in the section Collections/Generics.

Anyway, let's celebrate!

Congrats Nick , I think it's the highest score among ranchers who took the beta exam.
For me I'm wanting (passed in register.prometric and certified in I7). I expect a score in mid eighties.

I think it's the highest score among ranchers who took the beta exam.


However, 2 of my workmates scored higher than me.
They got 97% and both of them got 80% in Collections/Generics.

I am only a 2nd runner up in the SCJP Tiger beta competition list.

After SCJA beta, IBM 257 and IBM 399.

That's all for my 2005 plan, except ICED 6.0 released before the end of this year.

I wont go for MS for sure because I am not a developer in MS team, and thus, I can extempt from it.

Only SUN, WAS-related, DB2 and Oracle certs will do.

Nope, just for company policy requirement.

Nope as well, however, there is a need for comparing with others for salary adjustment.

Hi Nick,

Thats a very good company policy. I feel human inertia is so much that when there is no pressure, we would never move.

Good for company and also it's resources.


Just curious, did anyone experience a mismatch in the result in prometric and I7 database for Tiger Beta??
