    So now it is easy as ABC i recently sat for my 1ZO931 and passed it from Home. the convinience is so amazing and the home environment makes it less tense than at the test centre making your chances of passing high because the mind is at ease.

    I find it very disturbing that for a tough exam like Java, you allow pencil and blank scratch paper at a testing center, however, you don't allow the same in the onVue online proctored exam? I checked the digital whiteboard and trust me, it is not the same as having a blank piece of paper. By the time i even drew on the digital whiteboard, my 2 minutes per question was up. I'd end up losing precious time on the certification exam just to draw on the digital whiteboard that is not legible to me because i am not an artist. I am a programmer. I humbly request that at the very minimum, one piece of blank scratch paper (verified by the online proctor) be allow with a pen/pencil due to the tough nature of the Java SE 8 Programmer Certification and also due to the nature of test taking strategies such as process of elimination where a test taker can rule out incorrect answer (NOTE: the actual exam doesn't have this option) and circle in on the right answer choice. This is a critical component of any exam and to devoid test takers of a blank piece of paper is astonishing and outright ludicrous. Paying $250 for an exam should allow for at least one blank piece of scratch paper and not some illegible whiteboard which serves only to distract you from the exam and cause you to fail. I could barely even draw on the digital whiteboard, let alone figure out how to erase it. Not allowing this for online exams just showcases the business nature of corporations that conduct certification exams. This is not a cheap exam. It is $250. The arithmetic in this exam isn't as simple as 10/2. In fact, there are numerous casting involved and expression that need to be evaluated from left to right or depending on order of precedence. For ex (int)(5/2 + ++x - 2/3(int) * 7/2). It is a disservice to test takers to have to was 5 minutes on this question because they are not allowed scratch paper and have to rely on a terrible UX digital whiteboard. I urge the test maker to try taking notes on the digital whiteboard and come up with an answer that that arithmetic expression in less than 2 minutes. It is impossible! I hope this message is received and action is taken by appropriate authorities.

    The "wizards of smart" at Oracle are unable to tell us if we can take the test IN-PERSON because they are in love with the remote option that their brains no longer work.
