Attest 1.8.5 – Additional Flex 3/AIR mock exams released!

May 18, 2009By 27 Comments

Tonight we released another update to Attest based on some user feedback received from our previous poll. Version 1.8.5 includes the addition of a bunch of questions and exams as requested, and some you may find a bit more challenging. We also covered some additional material with these questions, so people should feel that much more prepared for the exam. It also includes a new randomization feature in the order of the questions that make it harder to memorize a pattern of answers. Dave and I are still hard at work on some other super cool features for version 2.0 (in addition to our regular work!) but knew that people were anxious to get their hands on more test questions, so we delivered 🙂 Grab the updated version here!

    Big thanks for releasing this update – I’m currently studying for the exam. I’ve noticed a difference in the difficulty of the questions between the Attest mock questions, and the easier sample questions provided by Adobe in the Exam Preperation guide pdf. Are the Attest questions designed to be slightly harder than the real exam questions, or are they a fairly accurate representation?

    In the Flex 3 AIR 2, there is a question

    T/F: A ContextMenu property on an InteractiveObject must be assigned to a Menu of type ContextMenu.

    The given answer is True, but I think it should be false, because “The menu object assigned to contextMenu can either be of type NativeMenu or of type ContextMenu.”

    Please verify, thanks.


    • devgirl says:

      Hi Haibo, you make a point… this question probably should be worded a bit differently to say something like: “When using AIR, the property of an InteractiveObject must be assigned to a ContextMenu or NativeMenu type…” since ContextMenu actually extends NativeMenu. The confusion here is that there’s a difference between how this property is set when using AIR versus Flash Player content, as noted in this excerpt from the InteractiveObject class LiveDocs: “For content running in Flash Player, this property is a ContextMenu object. In the AIR runtime, the ContextMenu class extends the NativeMenu class, however Flash Player only supports the ContextMenu class, not the NativeMenu class.”

      That is probably the important point to get out of this question as far as the exam is concerned 🙂 Dave and I discussed this and will change the question, thanks for the feedback! Holly

    Well, I just did the exam a couple of hours ago and passed with 82% which I’m happy with. Many thanks for releasing the Attest questions – they certainly helped a great deal towards passing the exam. The Attest questions I think are slightly harder than the real exam questions – in my view if you can answer 80% – 90% of the Attest questions, you should be able to pass the exam.

    I prepared for the exam by reading Flex 3.0 programming, Adobe Flex 3 training from the source, and mostly by reading the Adobe Flex 3 online help. I have an Oreilly Safari account, so I read the books online. For LCDS, there is separate online documentation. My technique for study was to build my own sets of questions and answers as I read through the documentation, which I would periodically review to refresh my memory. The direction I took was based around the topics outlined in the Exam Preparation guide, and also the suggested study areas from the Attest results page. The question and answer documents are in google docs, so if anyone would like access to them simply reply here and I’ll make them public.

    Good luck to those studying for the exam!

  12. Sara Allen says:

    I took the certification exam this morning and passed! And I can honestly say that Attest and Attest Pro helped me to prepare. I studied according to the different tabs provided (UI, Arch, Prog, Data and AIR), took all of the practice exams, examined the ones I got wrong and retook them. It was a very effective tool in helping me to organize the learning process.

    Thank you!!!!

  13. mio says:

    got somes errors after installing :
    when in start the app, alert “failed to load exam”
    anyone already got this error ?

    • devgirl says:

      Are you still having this problem Mio?

      • mio says:

        yes i dont know why, i try on other computer and works but not on my office laptop
        seem to be a configuration problem but don’t know why(my colleague have the same)
        flash/flex version? other?
        and now i have also an error when i star the air app “tourdeflex”, it can’t connect to internet

        • devgirl says:

          Sounds like a firewall issue or blocked port perhaps? Tour de Flex should always be able to connect when you have Internet access. Did you check to see if your Internet was working at that time? Thanks! Holly
