Spring 5 Package: Note (2021-01-01): I haven't updated it according to the recent change (a few months ago) in the official pivotal exam curriculum - which is, more Spring Boot questions. My tests are still good. However, you have to supplement your study with more Spring Boot topics from somewhere else.


SpringSource Certified Spring Professional (Spring 3 Certification) - Practice Tests

To Which Exam Are These Practice Tests Related To?

In Pearson Vue, the exam these practice tests are related to is titled like below:

     CoreSpringV3...: Core-Spring (based on Spring 3...)


The SpringSource Certified Spring Professional (Spring 3) package contains 5 complete tests (totalling to 250 questions).

Taking The Practice Tests

Just like the real exam, you must complete a test in 90 minutes. You may choose to have an untimed test. You can also choose to review the questions one by one, untimed, and answers shown.

Also, just like the real exam, the passing score is 76% (that means, you must have answered correctly, at least 38 questions).

Each complete test has:

1. 50 questions just like the real test
2. full coverage (100%) of the test topics

The look and feel, and features of itestjava.com's SpringSource Certified Spring Professional test interface is similar to the real test interface at the testing centers.

You can take the tests in 3 different ways:

1. Just Like The Real Test (Timed)
2. Just Like The Real Test, But Untimed
3. Review (Answers Shown, Untimed)

Source Of Practice Questions

The ITestJava practice questions are based on the following 2 official Spring materials:

Spring Framework Reference Documentation 3.0, PDF Format

This file is inside the 3.0.7 zip file download. You can download the zip file directly, or find it at the SpringSource Download Page.

Spring Security Reference Documentation 3.0.7.RELEASE, PDF Format

To check if you have the right version, check that on the 2nd page, you should see some text including the words '3.0.7.RELEASE'.

These Spring materials mentioned above contains everything you need to pass the test. For reviewing for the exam, you can choose to download and use any related version; however, the references and explanations in ITestJava's test questions, point to the pages of the 2 PDFs mentioned above.

If you are having any problem locating the files, let us know and we can try to help you.

Customer Reviews
I passed the Spring 5 certification with a score of 90%.

The mocks helped me a lot to know which parts of the spring documentation I should focus more on before attempting the exam and to strengthen my understanding of some topics too.

Thank you iTestJava !

itestJava helped me a lot to get my Spring Professional v5.0 certification.
I practiced the tests multiple times before taking the actual test (3 times each test).
The questions helped to strengthen my concepts, the explainations were short and clear.
Got me enough knowlege to pass the actual test
