Hi,
I'm preparing for Part 1 and has read a number of resources listed.
I've attempted Ian's mock with an average of 90%.
But how would I know if I'm really ready for the Part 1 exam.
I'd appreciate any comments.
Thanks.

A million dollar question !!!
But I dont think you can be sure about clearing the exam.SCEA part I is not like SCJP.
The mock exams available do not guarantee anything.
So I guess the only way could be go through all the forums and mock exams available on net.
And when u dont find anything new on any of the forums,I guess,then you could take chance

HanMing,
The mocks on my site try to ensure you have all the 'fact' knowledge for the exam. However in the real exam you should expect longer questions where there may be more than 1 correct answer but you have to pick the most correct.
If you're scoring 90% + then you have the fact knowledge, now you need to put it into practice with some scenario questions. I think there are a few mocks that focus more on this aspect.
Good luck
Ian

Hi Sandeep and Ian,
Thanks for your reply.
Wow, wouldn't it be difficult for one to find nothing new in any discussion.

At least, it's very difficult for me.
Ian, can you refer me to those mock you're refering too?
I find most mock are similar to your in the sense it test fact knowlege.
Few do I manage to come across is testing on scenario.
Looking forward to your recommendations.
Thanks and Cheers.

Han Ming...Javaranch Forum is indeed good.
Also go through http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scea_j2ee
and similar SCEA groups.
Infact till now, I have not found any mock exam that deals with any scenario type questions.I am also in desparate search of that.I hope somebody who have already cleared exam may come up with their own mock exam !!!

I was scoring about 90% on Ian's mock and I passed. I was arguing about some of the ones I missed. I'd say if you feel ready, you are ready.
GO FOR IT.
If you fail, you'll know a lot more about the exam content.

Even though I haven't signed up for the test yet. I found that if you ask if you are ready, usually means that you are ready.

1)did you read Enterprise Java Bean by Richard and understand EJB lifecycle?
2)did you read Buleprint by SUN?
3)did you read Java 2 network security?
4)did you read UML distilled?
5)did you understand John notes?
6)did you take all the mock tests avaiables in the web and understand them?
7)did you understand all the protocols and their difference?
If you did, you will pass it with at least 68%.
good luck.

Hi,
Thanks for all the replies and encouragement.

I guess I'll still need a little memorising work on Design Pattern.
Probably, after getting them into my mind, I'll give it a go.
Cheers.
