Hello Ranchers!

I took the test this morning and scored 93%.

I used EJB3 in Action along with the specs for my preparation.

For test programs I used NetBeans and Glassfish.

I think I spent too much time on reading little details so that I could score well. But anyway, that should help me in my work. Overall, I think the experience of preparing for and taking the test is a good way to ensure confidence in working with EJB3/JPA technology.

Next? SCEA 5 I guess. But it maybe a while before I go for that. Planning to brush up on Hibernate/Spring/Struts2 first. Let's see.

Cheers,
Onkar.

Congrats.

I am interested in SCBCD as well.

How long it should take me. How long did it took for you.
I have a full time job- so would be normally have an hour a day for it and then 8-7 hours over the weekends.

If the aim to just pass the exam and you have worked a little with the technology in the exam content, one month of prep should be enough.

If you want to score well and want to cover all exam objectives thoroughly, perhaps 3 months of prep would be needed.

I went roughly along the lines of the second option.

I'd suggest using the latest version! I think it's 6.5 Beta at present.

Try to follow the JPA tutorial on the NetBeans tutorials pages for a quick start.
