pfffff !
It was close. I got to say that it is difficult to know whether you are ready or not for this exam.
1/ I've been surprised by the number of case study. lots of long text to read and for a someone who english is not its first language it wasn't easy.
2/ The test objectives provided by sun in their certification success guide put me in the wrong direction, The only time they mention UML is:

State the name of a Gamma et al.design pattern given the UML diagram and/or a brief description of the pattern's functionality.


Therefore I was a bit surprised to get questions about activity and collaboration diagrams.
The beast is really to know everything from UML distilled of Fowler

3/ I'm glad I went through all the design pattern, I suppose thay want us to know every GOF patterns.
4/ Common architecture was for me the tricky part and my score was only 33 %.
5/ I18N is fairly easy, need to know about the text package, and class in Util package used for I18N.
6/ I learned far too much on security. Don't need too know about low java security and details of byte verifier. However add 1 question on class loader.
7/ No mock exam are covering everything but the best are:

with the UML exam (important)

Faiza, I reckon the best is to read Monson-Haefel book Enterprise JavaBeans. It covers everything, and you got some very useful life-cycle diagram and sequence diagram, you'll have to know them. If you're not practising EJB at your work then get JBOSS and play with the example Monson-Haefel include in his book. There's also an excellent web-site called precisejava.com that got some very valuable information. (actually I got 100% at both ejb and ejb-container and I think it is really thanks to this book and this web-site)

Everyone seems to be having problems with the
common architectures part. This topic would seem the least complex and the easiest. What subjects,
books references would help to look at?
Anyone?

Humans and their filthy friendship brings nothing but trouble. My only solace is this tiny ad:
