My special thanks to Harve, Shrividya, Macro and all who contributed to this forum.
I will write more about exam soon.
Congrats.... U did it !!! A very nice score.... I am planning to give my exam soon... but not feeling confident....
Can u pls give some tips on the preparations and the qtns stuff... It would also be great if u people can help us out... by participating in the forum [The sample qtns I have posted]... The response seems to be very slow...
here is some discussion about my exam questions
1. The most difficult and tricky part of the exam was questions on Common Architectures. Initially they give a real nock to me. Whats more, it looks like that, Sun wants to do pressure test on candidate first. All first 10-12 question were lengthy Common Architecture Questions and also some intermixed the Legacy and JMS and even security.
I think the questions posted by Srividya will be real help. I seen similar ( or same !!) questions there. Thanks Srividya !
2. UML and Design Patterns Quesions were very simple and are very good to speed up in the test.
For patterns I studied only the UML Structure of each patter, definations and applicability from GOF book. ( Thanks Macro !!)
3. EJB Questions covered basics, ***....
I THINK EJB1.1 SPECS IS MUST and in fact best resource
...Harve's posts made me to read EJB Specs.
4. Security questions really bugged me...there were two questions with long description and upto seven options...I think I missed both of them.
5. I got 2 I18N question, both were simple enough.
Overall the test was OK, except Common Architecture and applicability questions, but I think Vidya's posts helped me lot.
Thanks again everybody...
It was felt that the information removed was too close to a real question. If not, I'm sorry.

I too had given lot of thought on the strategy to solve paper in time.
In my exp, I think even if you give some more time for the first 10-12 question which used to be lengthy, you can always save the time in other question, perticularly design patterns and some ejb. The design pattern questions were very simple and helped to regain the time lag. I spent first 20-25 mins on first 10-12 question, still I could finish my first round when 26 mins were remaining, at that time I had 2 questions marked and one incomplete. I spent some more time reviewing the lengthy questions.
Important thing is that, you have to keep track of time at each min when you are solving the questions.
