Congratulations!

What is materials you use for exam? What is your experiences and lessons? What simulators you use?

In addition, are core JEE design patterns included?

Thanks,

Without too many great SCEA5 books or materials out, that's a great score. You should be proud of yourself!

I purchased the ePractice exam
Reason:
- only exam ard that is for SCEA 5
- the price is actually cheap as compare to whizlab (SCEA 2)

For the materials used.....i will list it by section ok?
Hope this list help those who are preparing the certification too

  • Section 1-

  • Practical Software Estimation: (M. A. Parthasarathy). (Note: I didn't read this book... for this section actually quite straight forward... if you have purchase the ePractice exam, from the answer & reference you will be able to tell what is reqd in the exam)
  • Section 2-

  • http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch02.html
    Note: can't find any reference for the objective "Explain appropriate and inappropriate uses for web services in the Java EE platform"

  • Section 3-

  • http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch0.html
    Nicholas Kassem, Enterprise Team. Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition

    Enterprise Blueprints
  • Section 4-

  • - Java EE tutorial
    - Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition

    Note: only score 37% for this section... hee... so.... it means the material i used is not enough....
  • Section 5-

  • - Java EE tutorial
    - Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, Second Edition
  • Section 6-

  • ePractice exam - kind of deduced the pattern on the question that will be asked....
  • Section 7-

  • http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch07.html
    GoF Patterns & core j2ee patterns
  • Section 8-

  • http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ch08.html

    I agree with Anderson about the score. Being SCEA certified is like being pregnant - either you are or you are not. You are! (SCEA certified that is, not pregnant).

    Congratulations Selina,

    Could you tell me how many and what type of questions you got on JPA and JSF. Also were there any questions related to J2EE API, or all the questions were of the format like which technology to use for a given business scenerio.

    Thanks,
    Ajay

    Can't rem exactly how many questions.
    JPA - there're questions on both application of Java EE technology and java EE API. usu. asked tog with EJB 3
    JSF- If i didn't rem wrongly all are on application of Java EE technology. ie given a scenario, which technology to use; correct usage of JSF

    Sorry for the vague answer coz I can't rem the question exactly now...

    Siraj

    well... i thk in total i spent ard 1-2 mths study for the certification.
    Each week I will dedicate 1 day to study the different sections of the certification.

    Btw it took me longer as I'm not familiar with patterns....so for those who already know maybe the time spent will be shorter?

    Hope this helps........

    Ramesh,

    Yes the ePractice exam covers the SCEA 5 part 1 objectives

    Kunal,
    I bought the part 2 exam through the local sun education website.
    After making my payment, the local sun representative contacted me to give my prometric testing ID so that the details for d/l the assignment is available

    Btw, i have enter the Priority Code as "WW48CX1" for the free re-take promotion.
