Score: 44/48. Missed one question on EJB, two on concepts, and one on legacy connectivity. Overall, the test is not that complicated if you have worked with J2EE for a couple of years. Here is resources I've used:
1. Cade's book: one or two day reading. Not as useful as [2].
2. SCEA in a nutshell: really useful notes.
3. UML Distilled by Fowler (long time ago)
4. Design Patterns by Gang of Four (long time ago)
5. Whizlab software: scenario questions are very similar to the real test. Many questions are worded badly, but I hear that they have fixed grammar errors recently.
6. javaranch, scea_prep_, scea_j2ee forums: great help!
Part 2 seems like fun
Regards,
Alex

Hello Alex Pinkin
Congratulations.
I also plan to prepare for it. But one thing you have said, a couple of years' experience with J2EE. Would you please list the potential problems without it? I may need to change my plan. I am a SCJP since May 4, 2001. I have moderate knowledge with J2EE. 3/4 months working experience with Servlet/JSP. I will attend SCWCD before it. Please suggest me.
Thanks.

Hi, Alex,
What is this "SCEA in a nutshell" you mentioned about? Or does anyone else know about it?
Thanks.
Christy

I think "SCEA in Nutshell" means the "SCEA nutshell" folder under yahoo group - scea_j2ee
This folder has a couple of PDF documents on different topics.
Please let me know too if this is something else.
Thanks
Vibha.

You cld also find them at SCEA_PREP under the files section.
These are an amazing set of abt 10 PDF docs. Unfortunately I don't know who the author is.
Chris Broeker's notes are 'noteworthy' as well.
HTH.

"SCEA in Nutshell" notes can be found under files section in yahoo group scea_prep.
@Boney: see exam objectives at Sun's site: http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/java_archj2ee.html
@Hafizur: hands-on J2EE experience is not a must, but it can save you weeks of preparation time. Make sure you read a good book on EJB and you will do fine.
Regards,
Alex
