My score isn't as impressive as most other's, but I'm still very proud to have passed the test today. I'm been attempting to learn EJBs of and one for a few years now but never really got it. It has always been presented as this really intimedating subject in books for years(IMHO). HFE has made EJBs excessible to me. A huge thanks goes to K&B for making this happen for me. My prep: - HFE (read it twice) - never looked at the spec - never did any extra exam sims Thanks to everyone at javaranch!
