Hello Everyone,
I am continuing the tradition of sharing the joy & observations with everyone. I scored 100% in each section except for security (50%) & EJB (88%). Though I have expected to barely pass the exam befored it commenced but was pretty confident to score well towards the end of it.
I do not have any impressive architecht ( I am looking for it) or EJB experience but have exposure to designing web based applications. All in all about three years in Java & j2ee PLUS A couple of other certs (UML, XML etc.)
It is Important to answer survey at the earliest as the clock started ticking when you are answering survey.
Questions were bunched except for security in my case it started with design pattern and in most cases more than one choices looked correct then you will have to look for most correct choise.
EJB is covered in depth but no DD type question. Life cycle mgmt of container was having many questions.
Many scenario based questions but if U are clear abt CORBA, EJB, JRMP, IIOP & legacy system kind of stuff then it will help U out
Jawaroski book has interesting chapter on security & Legacy connectivity I recommend it if U want precise and clear description of what to expect in the exam.
All in all I have a feeling that exam was pretty easy or I would say I was lucky enough to score so high. Never mind that but atleast expectations were belied and it left much more to be desired particularly when we are talking about most prestigious certification in the Industrry.
do not know anything abt part II can any one of U gmme the headstart atleast which posts links are intersting and must read before even thinking of downloading assignment.
Thanks
Deepak Arora

Hi ,
Do not have anything specific to comment apart from what I have said
and what is covered in most of the posts earlier. Still Cade,
whizlabs and a couple of notes can eaisly sail you through the high
seas (which actullay is shallow and wide). DO not overprepare if you
are looking to for any promotion in your company or if looking for a
change in job as a result of certification you may be disappointed if
you are based in india.
Thanks

Deepak,
Congratulations.....
I am familiar with a few design patterns, but I couldn't understand
anything from the Design Patterns from Mark Cade's book.
I am thinking reading GOF patterns book now. How much do you
emphasize on spending more time on patterns for the Part-I exam?

Understanding design patterns from GOF is like listening mahabarat from lord krishna himself go ahead if you can and if time and other resources permit you to do so but that may not add any significant value to your prep for SCEA - I. any other small bool like cooper can do the job equally well. This is not to suggest that book is not worth spending time and effort it definately worth more than that but please do not tell yourself while reading GOF that you are preparing for SCEA - I.
All the best
Deepak Arora
