Hi all,
i passed the scbcd today with a score of 94%. I used the following materials :
1) the specs EJB 2.0(read twice)
2) the Monson-Haefel book (read once)
3) AND two softs : whizlab and softSCBCD
I have some comments about these softs :
First, these softs really helped me in finding ou my
weaknesses (EJB-QL for instance) and in getting used to
the mock exams-type. The best way to really
prepare you to the exam is to test, test and test again
mocks exams.
Some pros and cons of these softs :
1) Whizlab:
- pros: - questions close to what you get in the real exam
(for instance the question about finding a EJB-QL
query, given an abstract schema).
- good explanations of answers.
- cons :- unstability of the soft. I got crashes in the
middle of a session. Weird that this soft is
implemented in VB for a java certif!
- was quite tough to install : took 4-5 days to get
the soft. Very strong security procedures...
- the price for the number of questions you get.
2) softSCBCD :
- pros: - more than 500 questions...
- an excellent Tutorial.
- quick to install : i got it 30 minutes after
buying it!
- cheap (17 $)
- cons : - questions a little further than the questions in
the real exams...especially the drag'n'drop
questions.
- there were mistakes in some questions and
explanations of answers were too short.
Both softs were helpful anyways.

Now let's go for the SCEA, hoping that this architect certif will update the EJB version from 1.0 to 2.0 next year. EJB 1.0 is a middle-age technology...
Thanks for this forum, this was great
Big Fred.

Howdy Mr./Ms. Softlearn Systems...
As you may know, we don't have a lot of rules out here on the wild frontier, but we do have a naming policy, and I reckon we'll send some cows after you if you don't change it...
So head on over to:
naming policy
and give yourself a name we can call you by when you start a fight in the saloon or insult the moose (which he takes VERY personally).
cheers,
Kathy

Are there 2nd hand whizlabs software for sale anywhere? I found it quite expensive to pay $74 for SCBCD exam simulator

Hello Kathy,
