Be careful, SCEA Part 1 is not so simple

I managed to pass the SCEA part I exam with a score of 89%.
That was a higher mark than I expected, because I found some of the scenario questions somewhat unusual, and without obvious answers.
I relied on elimination for some of them.
It is suggested that during the examination, we should clear the easy questions at first and leave 15 minites for the difficult one.

I found the following study guides useful:
***** Enterprise JavaBeans by Richard Monson Heafel, a thorough introduction.
***** Design Patterns, Erich Gamma, et al
***** SCEA Whizlabs mock exam, which is very useful.
***** UML Distilled, Martin Fowler, et al
**** Sun´┐Ż Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051), by Paul Allen, Joseph J. Bambara
*** Mark Cade's SCEA Study Guide, which is closely related to the syllabus. This is all worth reading, but it is not enough on its own.
*** Applet based Mock at Moelholm.com, which is a nice mock.
The various discussions on JavaRanch and its links to various resources are also very helpful, so thank you all very much as well.

Hi Chua
Some of my previous posting notes (title: passed SCEA part I with 95%) about unusual scenarios seems to be mixed in with your comments. I did note that some of the scenario question require some thinking about. The part I exam has some tricky aspects, and does require quite a wide range of knowledge. But with thorough study of the exam objectives plus general computing knowledge, the exam pass grade is achievable.
