I started preparing for the Part 1. But I wonder whether 75 minutes is sufficient to answer 48 questions. Can somebody who wrote the exam share their experience? Thanks.

All I can say is, yes 75 minutes is enough if you have a good grasp of the various areas.
Good luck!

75 minutes is PLENTY of time. I finished my first pass with over half an hour to go... and I didn't rush. Here was my strategy:
Go through and answer the easy ones, mark the longer ones (1 hour left)
Read the longer ones CAREFULLY, answer at your leisure (30 mins left)
One more time through to check for dumb mistakes
I got an 89, and felt the exam was fair.
Good Luck,
Fuji

Thanks for giving the suggestions. I have one more doubt. Did they ask anything about the APIs in any topic? Do I have to remember which API does what in all the topics, like i18n etc?
Thanks in advance.
