Hi,
I have already taken the JavaRanch mock 4 times. Got 80%, 88%, 96% and now 100% ...and why shouldn't I? After all its the same 25 questions that keep on repeating
Could anybody reflect on that please.
Thanks

You will get different questions if you do the test multiple times in the same session. Meaning the first time through the 25 will be the saem, but if you continue and run it again there, you will get differenct questions. At least that is what I have been told.
Well, I just took it again, and tried what I just wrote, but I got the same questions again, except the answers where in different letters. like the answer was "A" in the first time, now the answer can be found in "C"

Hi - I've taken it twice, about a week apart. (A couple of weeks ago).
The questions were the same, the answers were scrambled.
It clearly does not cover a number of the 'objectives'.
It's a good start on a mock, but definitly needs some work. (Maybe just input of questions).
Regards, Guy

I have the same experience. I took the mock consecutively within the same session. I got the same set of questions each time.
I think that random display of questions may not be such a good idea because there are chances several questions are missed after taking the test even six or seven times within a session. What people really want is to practice on all the questions in the pool.

Yes I have taken the exam twice in the same session, or rather did most of it the second time but did not want to get another 100%, so I quit
What a shame we cannot test our knowledge in a meaningful way as the questions are of good standard, albeit easy...and many of the objectives are not covered.

Hi frnds,
Well as u ppl r studying or have passed SCWCD u r definitely SCJP also. Do u remember the rules round up games with the cows in SCJP? That was very easy, nah? and was mainly a pleasure!? Compared to that SCWCD Mock of javaranch is more standard but much easier than the real exam. U shouldn't count it as a parameter of ur preparation. I think all the mocks so far we r getting will mature in time....
I only appeared once and got 84% and switched to other mocks avlbl. It may be a good idea if Carl can add some more questions in the 25 question exam....

There are 50+ questions. Nonetheless, we are unable to see all the questions.

There are 51, the count goes to 52 but, 1 was deleted. I found the bug that prevented getting more than the first 25 so, good luck guys
