Wow! I didn't expect that! At 6 months pregnant my brain should be shrinking!

For preparation, I read HFE twice which was a good, entertaining introduction. I then bought EJBPlus and SoftSCBCD exam simulators which were invaluable. A good deal of the questions they provide are on a very similar vein to the real thing. I occassionally referred to the spec but don't think my attention span would have lasted to read the whole thing!

The questions on the exam were more straight forward than I had expected and I had plenty of time to double check each answer.

Thanks to all of the HFE contributors and the forum participants who have been very helpful.

Claire,

Great score!!

Can you share your avg score with softscbcbd please? I have been scoring 80% in some of those exams and am wondering if I should be Ok to pass real exam.
Have not yet taken HFEJB book final exam.

Thanks

Hello Gemini

I was averaging in the 80%'s on SoftSCBD, a few percent less in EJBPlus which I think was harder. I got just under 80% in the HFE Final exam.

Hope this helps.

Good luck!

Congrats Claire,

As it is said that what you read during pregnancy, your kid gets to know by default. So, I must say that your kid is SCBCD by default ...

Congrats again ...

btw, can you share your experience with us ... I mean the study n preparation of ... guess what ... SCBCD
