Smile Passed

I passed the test yesterday with 87%. This forum really gives me a great help especially from SZ, Bala, Ezequiel, cbedford, tvtm and many more.

As for the real test, the degree of difficulty is about the same as the ICE test. Therefore, if you really understand all sample questions and their testing objective, you will have a very good chance of passing the test. IMO, qeustions from real test are less ambiguous than the ICE ones. I followed tvtm's suggestion to tackle those questions without attachment. In my test, I got 24 questions with exhibits. I discovered how to use the "Tile" button from exhibit panel only half-way through the test. Basically this feature provides a split-screen with question on the top and attachment at the bottom. But you needed to be careful in switching the panel. DO NOT click on the white space of the question panel as you might accidentally select/deselect the answer that you originally chosen. You should activiate the panel by clicking on the title bar. The "Tile" option is not in the ICE test. In the real test, there is NO go to option!

As for preparation, I studied both text books from Fowler and Larman. I also studied sample questions from ICE, Bala, myself, Ivan and WhizLab. I particularly like those WhizLab questions as their explanations are very clear and they also help you to attack the problem systematically. One will gain more knowledge and confident in OO.

Does this mean -
1. There is no way that to go back to Q.x, with which one had some difficulty ,even if one got some time left after completing all questions??

2. There is no way you jump to Q. x+1 , without choosing some option( willingly or unwillingly ) for Q. x??

Thanks in anticipation.

Ram, you can go to Q.x by pressing the "Next" or "Previous" button repeatedly. It just takes a bit more time. Fortunately, the response time of the test system was very good.
