Finally, with almost 2 months of studying the EJB3 specifation and reading the Mikalai Zaikin's EJB guide, I passed with 63%. The test was very hard for me

The worst area I got was in JMS. I got 25% the best area I got was in Exceptions and Entity Operations (both with 80%)

My strongest area in EJB3 is JPA, but I didnt see many questions about it. I saw a lot of session beans and $*@#&$ message-driven bean

Mr. MZ, thanks for helping, your guide is very good (but, when I tried the IBM ICAAD exam (257) I didnt pass ). When you come to Brazil, I will pay a beer to you haha

My suggestions: Study EVERYTHING about EJB3. The exam isnt so easy and all people I saw that passed in this exam got at least 70-75%, and, I guess when new EJB3 preparation book become released, it will help people to get a better score.

My materials: Mr. Zaikin' guide and the spec. Nothing more. I saw a little bit in Pro EJB3 - JPA but it didnt help me so much

I work with JPA in an enterprise project but I use it with a framework of my company, so, I didnt practice the EntityManager operations =/

good luck for all

Because of that I am even thinking of SCEA5 INSTEAD of that.
