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 ( 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)
The J2EE Tutorial
Practical UML: A Hands-On Introduction for Developers
Mock Exams
Jamie Jaworski�s Mock Exam
A set of mock exam questions (author unknown)
Notes and Information
The Java BluePrints site.
Prasks Resources on Sun Certified Java Architect
Marcus Green�s certification site (contains additional links)
Very good notes, links, etc.
Amit Jnagal�s SCEA Resources

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 (, 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 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
