Friends,

I finally cleared SCBCD 1.3 today with a score of 100%. I still cannot believe it because I had not expected this at all. It came as a surprise.

I gave in roughly a month of serious preparation. I don't have much experience on EJBs. So when I started reading HFEJB, all concepts were very new to me.
But as you all know HFEJB book is so nice that after reading it twice, I got all the concepts. I also went through EJB spec and took 'enthuware' mock tests. Also took 'ejbcertificate.com' mock tests and visited this forum everyday.

So all the above things contribute to the success. Thanks to all fellow ranchers and most of all thanks to Kathy and Bert without whom a novice like me could never have got this score.

Regarding the test, most of the qs were straighforward, some MDB qs were tricky, also I found some exceptions qs confusing. EJB-QL was also pretty easy. There were lots of qs on resources and methods that can be accessed from bean methods along with qs on methods in EJBObject/EJBLocalObject and EJBHome/EJBLocalHome.

That's it,
Mini

Thanks Prasanth!

Yes you need to remember the tags well as there were quite some qs related to tags and the information they may contain. There were a few DnD qs related to tags.
I know, even I had a tough time remembering those, best strategy is to read them again and again, if you try to memorize them in one go it would be difficult.

Did you have any questions which did not mention the correct number of answers?
