Hi folks. I have been studying a while now and finally took the test. It's not the score I wanted but I'll take it. I had been getting 85-95% on Enthuware exams. I did alright in every objective but scored lowest on API Concepts. I think I got a 78% because I second guessed myself a lot on the second and third pass through the exam.

Now to figure out what certification to go for next....I am getting a new job once the background check clears and the direction of the work will be what I focus on....it will be either Web Component or Business Component. I haven't a clue where to start with for either one.

Hi Darren,
Congratulations!
Regarding the score, it is really surprising to note that your actual exam score is lower than Enthuware scores. This may happen when you repeat the same tests. (or if you are comparing section/obectivewise scores instead of Standard Tests). Your scores on first attempt of the Standard Tests should give you a clear picture. Also, the Last Day Test is fairly accurate. How much did you score on that?


thank you for your feedback,
Paul.

Paul, You are right...my higher test scores were with tests I repeated. The last day test I scored 71% on. So it was fairly accurate. I praise Enthuware software. You get a lot for the money and there is no better way to prepare for a test except to take practice tests. Thank you for great software.

I was scoring pretty high on other mock exams as well though. I know they weren't as tough but I was still scoring 85-95% on some of the free mock exams.
