Yes, congrats and kudos to you for passing. Well done mate!

Would you mind helping out the others here and please describe:
1. Your experiences, both good and bad with the three parts. (No direct exam questions please, but just general experiences and opinions would be fine), and
2. Please list the resources you used for study purposes.

This kind of information is of great assistance to the other candidates.
Regards,

Sure, that would be my pleasure!

Part-1 : This is the toughest among all the parts and would require solid understanding of the concepts mentioned in syllabus. Mostly all of us would have used most of those concepts in our work and hence it would not be that much difficult understanding them. Concentrate mostly on UML, design patterns, Architecture, EJB and Messaging: they are good scoring areas. Java Security for me atleast was very tough and hence spend some valuble time for that as well. There are lot of mockup sites available and they are pretty much helpful to know about that question patterns and gives us some trial for Part-1 exam. I would recommend to spend atleast 2-3 hours morning and 2-3 hours evening on every weekday and atleast 9-10 hours on weekends for 40-45 days and then you are the winner!

Part:2 It's fun..!(if you have solid design experience). Read through the business requirements, usecases and domain model for atleast 20-30 times and then list out all the assumptions. Then start of with class diagrams, iterate it over and over, finalize them, Then go for sequence diagrams,component diagrams. If possible keep one deployment diagram also. Pls be sure that the design reflects both Web and Swing clients across all the digrams. Pls dont hesitate to refer back your study materials in Part-1 for design atterns/Architecture/UML etc.. Daily 4 hours for 25-30 days should be enough.


Part:3 There will be some high level architectual questions to justify the design methods that we have chosen in Part-2 assignment and one should be able to answer them easily since they would have put lot of time in Part-2 assignment. Next day after Part-2, you sud be able to take up Part-3.

All the best..!
