I passed the SCEA exam with the following score:
Concepts 100%
Common Architectures 83%
Legacy Connectivity 100%
EJB 100%
EJB container Model 100%
Protocols 66%
Applicability of J2EE 100%
Design Patterns 100%
Messaging 100%
Internationalization 100%
Security 100%
I have studied for approx. 50 hours since I did not have that much exposure to EJB previously. I have used the following study material:
Cade's official study guide: Borrowed it and read it through very quickly to get an overview. Glad I didn't buy it myself as I will never turn to it for reference. Several of the chapters are too short (e.g. Design Patterns) and important detail are missing.
Mastering Enterprise Java Beans by Ed Roman, Scott Ambler, and Tyler Jewell. Very good for EJB-beginners with short working source code.
Design Patterns by Gamma et al. Mandatory read for the exam's Design Pattern questions
Fowler's UML book
WhizLabs SCEAWhiz. Quite good to find your weak points. Never heard of a screen scraper beforehand :-) The questions are somewhat harder than the real thing. The questions are also poorly worded at times, but I think the money was well spent.
The J2EE 1.3-spec. Especially the EJB-spec was very helpful. It is very well-written for a spec and of course all the small details are there. Recommended if you like that kind of thing
Best regards,
Jacob Grydholt Jensen
