I passed my SCBCD with 91% last month, 2nd May... forgot to post it on the forum earlier. I wasn't expecting the score since my prep time was too short (1 month) So I was pleasantly surprised!

Preparation Strategies:

Time >> [One month], but I would suggest a period of atleast 2 months. I had just passed my SCWCD 2 months back, so I didnt have a lot of inertia getting started probably.

Book >> Headfirst EJB, ofcourse. Wonderful book!! I didnt read anything else besides this. I think the book is more than enough. Its certainly a pleasure to read. Infact the whole series (Java, Web Comps, Buss Comps) is excellent!!

Mock >> I didnt have any time to solve mock exams from jdiscuss.com, The only mock I could give was the Headfirst mock. Solve that exam only when you are prepared for the main exam (typically 1-2 days before ur exam) Also remember that the actual exam would be somewhat easier than this.

Actual Exam >> Most of the questions were of mid-easy complexity. The only Qs I found myself struggling with were EJB-QL drag-drop Qs. Keep them for the end. So atleast you are not worried about the time.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Hearty Congratulations...
Great achievement in just 1 month...
Could you let us know if you have experience working with EJB?
I am tensed regarding reading the spec..
Is it necessary to go through the spec(if we do not have exp)
Waiting for your feedback..
