I am writing my sun certification exam this weekend. I am having one doubt about the real exam. In Multiple choice question, will it be mentioned about the specific number of answers to be selected from the option list? If you guyz can clear my doubt it would be better for me.
Well I have not appeared for the test till now. But I am sure it will not be mentioned there in the question. You have to find the correct answers on your own. If there are 7 option then it might be 1 or 2 or 3...or 7 correct answers. You will not be given the no. of correct answers.
I am following Khalid A. Mughal book "A Programmers' Guide to Java Certification"(310-035) in that it is mentioned that(on page No. 493) for multiple-choice question, the program will ask the candidate to select a specifice number of answers from a list. Also in the mock exam of this book it is given how many answers have to be selected for all questions.
Note that questions which may have multiple correct answers show square checkboxes. In the current Sun exam, they give a hint as to the number of correct answers in this type of question. Since this was not true in earlier versions and may change back. this information I could find from one of "Java 2 Programmer Certification Exam Simulation Applet.htm" by w brogden.
so now the current exam will give a hint as to how many number of correct answers in multiple choice questions.
In Multiple choice question, will it be mentioned about the specific number of answers to be selected from the option list?
With each question, it will state, "Select n Correct Answers." You will be told exactly how many options to check. You will not, however, get any partial credit. Your question is either all right or all wrong.
