SCEA CX 310-052 Simulator

For those of you who are preparing for the SCEA Certification (Part 1): CX 310-052, it is recommended that you should take some tests before this exam.

For this purpose, I created a Java Swing application which simulates the respective exam. The questions in this simulator were taken from and
At the moment, this simulator contains two tests: one comprises 64 questions, the other 5 questions. If you want to add more questions, you can edit the quiz_2.xml file, which can be found in the jar archive. I recommend that each xml file should have a maximum of 64 questions.

The application can load automatically a maximum of 10 xml files with questions (quiz_1.xml ... quizz_10.xml). In order to add a new file with questions, you should make sure that the file respects the format below:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
            The question statement will be placed here.
            <choice correct="true or false"> One of the possible answers will be placed here.</choice>

In addition, the file must be named quiz_?.xml (where ? can be a number between 1 and 10) and placed in the jar archive.

I hope that this application will be useful to many of you who want to take this exam.

Good luck!
