BCP-811 Info



I am preparing to take the BCP-811 exam and other than the exam guide I can't seem to find much information on it.


The BCP-810 self-assessment provided by RIM does a great job of letting candidates know what to expect.  I wish a similar resource was available for BCP-811.


What worries me is that the exam objectives (esp. Section 2 - Development) cover a lot of APIs.  I'm wondering what level of detail I should be studying to.  Do I have to memorize all the various class, interface, and method names?  This would seem a bit ridiculous to me (why force us to memorize things that can be easily looked up?) but if this is the case then I want to be as prepared as possible.


I would actually prefer something similar to the Java Developers certification which assigns a programming project.  However, I understand this would be an administrative nightmare for RIM and probably not an option.


So, if anyone who's taken the exam could shed a bit of light it would be greatly appreciated.  (Obviously you shouldn't be posting any specific topics or questions.)


 Note: I will cross-post this to the java development forum.

Re: BCP-811 Info

Same here, if RIM really wants to help their developers providing a self study guide and a practice exam. Thanks!
