Hi, I just wanted to drop a note here. I am planning on going for the Architect in about a month or two. I just finished the SCWCD. But I want to take a little break.
But I also wanted to know what you guys thought was the average amount of time needed to prepare for the first part of the test? I have some EJB experience, and even have a Brainbench cert in EJB. I need to learn UML better. What do you guys think?
Thanks
Mark

Hello,
I've only just begun but from looking at the specs if you already understand EJBs and a little UML you should be well underway.
I find that the Web Developer knowledge seems to help. (I.e. you will already know all questions related to servlets/JSP etc). The UML seems to be simple in part 1 (harder in part 2) you just need to recognise patterns etc.
There does however seem to be lots of definitions to learn, i.e. what is a screen-scaper...
Good luck
Ian

2-3 weeks of preparation is enough for Part I.
UML is only 4-5 questions straitghforward.
After, you must have an understanting about protocol, security (applet), cluster.
The best reading is EJB1.1 Spec !!!
