Oh GOD! thanx.... Thanx ............Thanx..........Thanx to everyone here.It helped me a lot with all your discussions.
Passed SCBCD just now with 80%.Ofcourse it is not a great score for all who really here are scoring 100%.But I felt very happy that I passed it without any prior knowledge of EJB and I Prepared just for 3 weeks.
Valentin a special thanx to you because u were the first person who gave me all the links for preparation.Mikalai thanx a lot for giving us such a very good notes.Kathy's Book was a bible and Spec was a Dictionary which are real good gifts of god for all us for SCBCD.
Shweta Agarwal thanx a lot for inspiring me to write the exam with 3 weeks of preparation.
But my only suggestion about EJB-QL is please read very well from some other book may be spec and Mastering enterprise beans book.I lost all the marks in that.Though HFEJB is a very good book It is not covering everything as they specified already.All the Questions in the final exam all I saw were very direct from spec.But read only HFEJB,very little of spec.SOFTSCBCD simulator,ejbcertificate.com mocks.Though Mock exams have mistakes they are really good ones for practice.
Congrats on your effort! Only 3 weeks is the time you took? It's amazing to see such posts. I have a little knowledge about Beans and no practical knowledge. I was actually reading the spec. for SCWCD. Now I am tempted towards SCBCD. Please give me some suggestions.
1.I read HFEJB book within 10 days and after every chapter I did www.ejbcertificate.com chapter wise exam.may be daily 4 hours. 2.Next one week I read HFEJB book again also read corresponding chapters in Mikalai notes and also refered spec for any doubts in my final reading. 3.for 3 days I did SOFTSCBCD Mockexams and finally wrote HFEJB mock exam.
All set to go.The only mistake I did was I must have read spec little more and also EJBQL from mastering enterprise beans book.That made me to loose my marks.I was more tensed up in the exam when my first Questions were from EJB-QL and all I could not answer.
Please give me any suggestions if possible about SCWCD 1.4.
Thanks for your prompt response. I have ordered HF-SCBCD.
Actually I was waiting for HF servlets and JSP and in the meantime going thru' the spec. for servlets. It's a good read. You can start of with that and by the time the book arrives you would have covered quite a lot. Also, I read Marty Hall's 2nd edition. Good luck.
Sorry for those who feel that this is in the wrong forum.
