Hi everyone
I have been asked to take a Brainbench test "Java / Design Paterns / OO Concepts" for a position I have applied for and havn't got a clue of nature and degree of difficulty for such tests. Has anyone taken any similar test earlier ? Any help,suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Is that one exam or three? java - OO Concepts - Design Patterns

This site has an excellent search feature - upper right side of the page. I found my prior post on brainbench exams: post with my reply about brainbench exams

As I said in that post, it has been a while since I took any brainbench exams. I took an OO Concepts exam and some java exams, didn't take anything on design patterns (although the OO concepts probably included design patterns questions). The tests weren't very difficult for people that either knew the answers or were very good at finding answers during timed exams.

On topics I was pretty confident about I spent most of my prep time assembling references to use during the exam; mostly browser bookmarks of sites with the information i though I would need or with search engines that were appropriate to the topic. I took exams on a couple of topics I wasn't very confident on so I spent a small amount of time preparing, but nothing like the time I spent studying for the SCJP certification.

Brainbench FAQ:

What percentage of test-takers actually passes?
Approximately 40% of those who complete a certification test become certified. About 12% of those who pass are certified at the master level.

hmmm... you not really announcing your availability, or looking for work. I'm going to move this to jobs discussion, but it may get moved again.
