Honestly, I have little to no experience hands-on with J2EE and I did fine. I am currently unemployed and hoping that this cert will help my job search.
I used 2 books: the Exam Study Kit and the new ExamCram2 book.
I scored in the sixties on the three Exam Study Kit CD tests, in the seventies on the CD PrepLogic test from ExamCram2, and in the high eighties on the ExamCram2 written test.
There were more questions on design patterns than I expected. Many of the options in the design pattern questions were not the patterns you are to know. The answer is always one from the objectives (or the Front Component pattern). Other than that there were few surprises and the test didn't focus too much on any specific topic. One question I didn't expect basically asked if you could use a certain object from the java.lang package as a bean. If I remember anything else worth noting about what the test covered I'll add it to this thread later.
The Exam Study Kit is very popular in the saloon and for good reason because it covers the exam well. If you understand what's in the book you will pass the test at least as well as I did.
The ExamCram2 book was good for little more than review and for learning the deployment descriptor thoroughly - the appendices are especially helpful to read within 24 hours of taking your test.
