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..
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
