Hi,

I've passed the SCBCD exam yesterday with 100%

I've prepared roughly for 2 weeks (and I've got 1.5 yrs experience in EJBs), studied HFEJB once and revised once, have done the HFEJB mock and the mock exams on ejbcertificate and jdiscuss websites.

Some of the questions on the exam are very easy and staight forward. But the ones from Message Driven Beans and EJB-QL are a bit tricky. Read the specs for message driven beans if you can, as I came across a couple of tricky ones on those. EJB-QL questions are very time consuming expecially in the drag n drop flavour.

Thank you so much Kathy and Bert for that wonderful book ... it is so fun reading it and I came across some interesting concepts which I never paid attention while working on EJBs. Thank you ranchers for all those valuable solutions and feedback.

And all the best for all those taking the beta exam (I'm not sure I can do that as I never worked on EJB 3.0)!

A wonderful score Bharathi.

While working on EJB(1.5years) which books/tutorials/study guide etc played a key role for you in understanding and working in EJB area.Was there any training which played a key role.
For SCBCD which ones(books/notes/tutorial)did you feel contributed the most.Can you mention appr percentage wise.Like ejbcertificate.com(20%) of what was required etc.
Did your 1.5 years of experience played a crucial role in understanding and getting 100 % in SCBCD 1.3.

Once more you just made it.

Rajan,

Sorry for my late reply ... caught up in work esp. with my on-and-off schedule during the exam week

While working on EJB's, I didn't follow any book in particular. I've gone through the J2EE and EJB tutorials from Sun and followed some books like "Professional EJB" from Wrox (hope the publisher name is correct), and J2EE Complete Reference for reference purposes. I've learnt mostly by experience and I used to follow java ranch forum for EJB's (not the certification one).

Coming to SCBCD, the only book I've studied is Head First EJB, used spec for reference, and Valentin Crettaz's cheat sheets really helped me in remembering some things for the exam, esp. for ejb-jar.xml. I did the mock exams on ejbcertficate.com, jdiscuss.com and ofcorse, the mock exam from HFEJB. And yes, the 1.5 yrs experience has definitely helped me a lot in preparing for the exam ... I can't imagine taking an exam with out real world experience with a 2 week prep ... it would be very tough for me As you asked, the percentage split would be something like:

HFEJB 80%
Specs 8%
Cheat Sheets 7%
ejcertificate,jdiscuss 5%

Everyone,

Thank you for reading through this long email and thanks for all your support.

Bharathi
