I�ve been unable to find a �Links� page for the SCEA exam on JavaRanch, similar to what was put together for the SCWCD certification (http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp). While I�m not a particularly good candidate for putting something like this together (I�ve just started pulling together my study plan, and don�t plan to take the exam until later in 2002), I did a review of this discussion area, and came up with the following:
SCEA Links
Objectives and Documents
Sun�s Certification Success Guide (containing test objectives) http://suned.sun.com/US/images/certification_archj2ee_07_01.pdf
The J2EE Tutorial http://java.sun.com/j2ee/tutorial/1_3-fcs/index.html
Practical UML: A Hands-On Introduction for Developers http://www.togethersoft.com/files/services/umlonlinecourse/index.html
Mock Exams
Jamie Jaworski�s Mock Exam http://www.jaworski.com/java/certification/
A set of mock exam questions (author unknown) http://www.x-nt.com/questions.html
Notes and Information
The Java BluePrints site. http://java.sun.com/blueprints/
Prasks Resources on Sun Certified Java Architect http://prasks.webahn.com/scja.html
Marcus Green�s certification site (contains additional links) http://www.jchq.net/faq/jarchitect.htm
Very good notes, links, etc. http://www.x-nt.com/index.html

Would a moderator be able to create a single links page that members of Javaranch could contribute to (rather than hiding pointers in individual discussions)?
For my personal study plan�the company I work for subscribes to BrainBench (http://www.brainbench.com/), so my current plan is to do a fair bit of studying during the first quarter of 2002, and use the following Brainbench tests to informally chart my progress in a couple of areas also covered on the SCEA Part I exam:
- Object Oriented Design Patterns
- Java EJB
- CORBA 2.3 Java
- Optional: OO Concepts, Data Integration

Hi Jeff,
The x-nt.com website is mine (blush), I've just brightened it up & hopefully some of my notes on the other pages will be useful to people too.

Thanks, Simon
