I've started reading IBM RedBook sg246195.pdf. It has some very pertinent information in chapters 2 ( Aritecture Overview ) and 3 ( topology ). RedBook This might very well deserve a spot on the links page.
Hi, I just passed part 1 exam with a good score. THe topics you listed in your email were all covered. Concentrate on basic stuff in the areas you listed there are 48 questions on the exam most of them are ejb container and ejb's. Most of the other topics have 3-4 questions each and they are general as opposed to specific. The EJB questions are more specific. Many scenario questions about 1/3. See Cade's book for scenario type questions. Most of the Mock exams are too detailed so if you are doing well on the 80+ you are going to pass the exam. I would have liked a little more time 1hr 15 min is the time limit. Another 15 minutes would have allowed me to review the second half of the test. I was in a situation where there was a lot of distraction at the test site during the beginning of the exam made it difficult to concentrate. This was my second test site since there was a problem at the last one too. They lost my registration and it took 2 hours to get me re-registered and start the test. Noel SCJP, SCWCD, SCEA(Part 1)
