Yesterday I have passed SCBCD exam with 87% score. HFEJB book has been very useful in understanding the EJB fundamentals and helpful for the exam preparation for the people like me who don't have prior experience with EJB. After reading HFEJB book, I found Mikalai's notes is highly instrumental in enhancing exam preparation base and especially the tables presented summarizing transaction scenarios and exceptions and CMP relationship diagrams are really superb and must read for everyone going for the exam. Many thanks to Java Ranch SCBCD forum and ejbcertificate.com for providing excellent mock exams. In the real exam, I found the questions on MDB are tougher. This exam has provided a great learning to understand EJBs in Java which is my long cherished aim as I have not yet exposed to this technology before. I wish all the future aspirants a great success!
