There is no sample test for SCEA, to my knowledge. It comprises of 3 exams. Pls following the below links for more info.

My feeling is that, even though we get to clear this exam, we need not be regarded as an architect. We need to have thorough practical knowledge of different software systems, how they interact, how to apply security and many more such things apart from good OO system designs, in order to make the right architectural decisions. A person with the above skills need not necessarily have cleared the exam to be considered for the elite role in the organization IMHO.

Hope this info helps. Good luck for your pursuit.
