Most design pattern questions asked were about: 1. Select the design pattern (front controller, value object, MVC, DAO, business delegate) based on the scenario. For example: data source will be changed -- use DAO. workflow -- use Front Controller ... 2. Advantages of each design pattern (multiple choices). I got 100% for this section. What I did was to understand the definition of each of these design patterns. It seemed no hard questions for this part.
