Just here to tell everyone i passed and what i did to pass it. So if anyone is looking for some advice on preparing for this exam, heres my 'two pence'.
1. Head First EJB by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates. Excellent book, i read it about 3 times, everytime it got clearer for me. Also do all the tests. Incidently i got 65% in the test at the end of the book. Its much harder thn the real exam.
2. EJB Specs. That was so boring. Hated every minute of it. But i took notes on the important points
3. INESystem exam simulator. I got a promotion version that came with 5 exams. I only had time to do 3. Good Graphical user interface and the exams are pretty good. Tad bit harder than real exam.
4. Valentino's cheatsheets are a heaven sent for the Bean Life Cycles. THANK YOU VALENTINO you saved me lots of pain & misery!!!
Gonna go for the SCEA exam next.
Cheers everyone,
Dave
