I got 62/70.. not too bad.. but drag & drop question took my high score..
First drag & drop didn't work at first time. I mean when you drop something in white space it was not getting updated. I lost sometime in that thinking it is bug. After working on second drag & drop (which worked after many trials) went back to first one which worked after many drag & drop trial.
One thing I observed when you drop the answer in white space make sure you see White Square instead of arrow. It's hard to explain in words.
Because of that I lost time & all drag & drop questions where on EJB-QL. In the end EJB-QL show 40%.. I hate it like anything after having good SQL knowledge but stupid software...
I think SUN should use INESystems hand sign drag & drop method. INESystem has good user interface.
I was new to EJB but had Java related certification SCJP & SCWCD. My preparation for SCBCD was mainly from Head First EJB. (Thanks to Kathy & Bert for wonderful book)
1. Head First EJB - 4 times reading (not needed.. 3 times okay)
2. http://www.valoxo.ch/jr/cheatsheets.html - exam cheat sheets are good. (Excellent DD sheet a must read)
3. NO EJB spec reading at all. (Just referred page or two)
4. INESystem exams (I had free copy - Thanks) good user interface & good mock exam questions. Only done three exam & pass all of them with 70%.
5. Clear HFB mock exam with 70%.
6. You should not pay attention to above trial exam score. If you feel confident & read HFB three times you are bound to pass with good score.
7. Mastering EJB book for reference but not much.

Bottom line read HFB book & attend this forum should get you SCBCD.
Good luck to all. Hope this helps

INESystem gave away free trail when they introduce SCBCD exam software. I am not sure they still give free copy. You can try at comments@inesystems.com.

Hello Nehul Nalekar,
Many congratulations on passing the exam. I'm glad you found our SCBCD exam simulator useful.
Jayantilal Gosar: The original promotion ended a few weeks ago but at the moment we are selling the SCBCD exam simulator at half price, only $14.99.
Regards
Ian Anderson

Hi Prasad,
Total EJB-QL questions were 5 (might be 6) & drag - drop were 2 from EJB-QL and 2 more from other topic. Security questions might be from 2-4. But you have to read security question won't be straight forward. I mean read what bean provider can do about security, application assembler can do about it & last deployer. Also read deployment descriptor tag about security.
You will find Head First EJB with most of the answer.
Hope this help.
