Hi,
Today I passed part I of SCEA with 75%.

I did'nt want to read others notes or question/answers etc. All I did was just used the J2EE study guide by Paul as a quick refresher on the things that i already knew and see the general pattern of the exam. I did'nt try to force learning any of things that I did'nt know/used already. However I was able to know my strenghts and weaknesses. For example: I clearly knew that I was weak in Security and Protocols etc, but did'nt try to learn much of the theory about it as I wanted to practically use it while doing my Part 2.
I went to the exam saying to myself that if I have enough knowledge to pass, then I would go for part II or else I will wait for another year and gain enough experience and attempt part I again.
In the exam the most questions seemed easy (atleast the things that i already used in the past) and some questions were'nt easy ( the tihngs that i did'nt use in the past). I had 20 minutes left when i finished the exam and ended up with a score of 75%.
I have just above 3 years of Java experience. My main objective was to do the assignment in part II and gain more practical experience [ Reviewing the PetStore,Revisting/Applying Patterns, Making practical architectural decisions, Modelling with UML etc] . In a day or two will be downloading the assignment and lets see how it goes...
