Hi ranchers,
I recently passed the SCWCD. I want to do the SCEA next. Forgive me for asking this silly question, but how long does it usually take to prepare for 310-051. I looked for quite a few threads in this forum and have an idea of the books / materials, however I was wondering if it is a few months I am looking at or if it is more like 6 months! I have been working on J2EE - WebSphere for about 3 years now, so I do have a basic understanding of some of the concepts. Any pointers would be helpful.
Also I had another question, once we do the first exam, is there a time limit by when we have to do the rest two or can we take one at a time, as feasible for us?
Thanks.

Part 1 as I can see is braodly divided into following areas:
1> Concepts of Architecture (J2EE) - including security, protocols, etc
2> UML and Design Patterns
3> EJB

Time for preparation depends upon how well versed you are with above mentioned topics. It may take anywhere from 80-160 hours.
No time limit restrictions to buy assignment for part 2 after part 1.
But between part 2 and 3 there is some restriction of couple of days or so.

Hope this helps

All the best

It took me around 2 month avg.2hrs/day. I had no coding experience for EJB but good understanding of all aspects for J2EE. This is what I used SCEA Part I links.

Thanks a lot to both of you. I was hoping it will take about a couple of months and I was thinking of taking the exam in July, I will now stick with the plan. I have been working on J2EE for about 3 years and have been using UML. I will start on the exam preparations earnestly now. Thanks again.
