How are the questions about Design Patterns in Part I?
Does the exam presents a given scenario and asks which design pattern is best suitable to ilustrate that situation?
Or is there any question which asks what are the advantagens of a given design pattern?

Sort of both.
Other than the case where the UML diagram is given and u are asked to find out the design pattern being shown, you can mostly expect general questions.
Like - Pattern used by EJBHome, EJBObject etc. Advantages of Facade Pattern.

Hi All,
Should I also have the knowledge of EJB design patterns for part I exam apart from Java design patterns.

Some knowledge of Enterprise Design Patterns would be surely helpful. There could be some questions on that.
Also, I had downloaded the book by James Coplien on Design Patterns using Java.

Did anyone ever get a J2EE Core Pattern question ?
I think mine were all GoF, not sure though.
The exam objectives explicitly mention Gamma et al.
One exception is the Data Access Object pattern (in the EJB section):
"Identify costs and benefits of using an intermediate data-access
object between an entity bean and the data resource".
Cheers
Gus

James Coplien
I presume you meant, Java Design Patterns by James.W.Cooper.
