Hello,

Do you think I have to do more readings?
I have read the book and found it easy and straight forward(except the patterns chapter which was not clear). I will do the two mock exams on the CD this week and I am planning to take the exam next weekend.

P.S. I am SCJP, SCBCD, SCDJWS, SCWCD.

Thanks in advance

I haven't finished reading this book because I changed to read Cade's book. In my opinion, Cade's book is well-written than this book.

I don't think it's enough for reading just these books, none of these books are comprehensive, you'd better do more reading on specific areas, for example, i18n, legacy connectivity, security...

I have read Cade's guide twice, read additional articles, finally got 95% in my Part I.

For security, I think the other three certifications that I have covered it thoroughly.
Could you please suggest some material for legacy connectivity?

I have read Cade's guide twice


Do you mean Cade's book?

I cannot remember which resources I am using for additional reading because there is a long time after my Part I. There are some useful links in yahoo groups describing which resources are must-read, and of course, you'd better search this forum to see what other guys said.


Yes, I mean Cade's book.

I passed part I last week with 85%. I have read Paul and Joseph book twice and the notes you can find in the yahoo SCEA study group. You can find the link somewhere in this forum.
I decided to take the exam when I got scores between 70 and 80 in the mock exams. In fact, I think Sun's exam is easier, since they tell you the number of correct choices in multiple choice questions.

I think this book is tough and dull, and less than clarifying. But, if you have patience and don't want to spend money buying several books, this covers almost everything.
I can not recommend Cade's because I haven't read it.

Thanks for sharing your prep.

Cade's book is highly recommended for part 2 and 3. I have ordered the book from Amazon.com but it is currently out of stock. Don't miss it.

Correction MArk Cade's book is highly recommended for Part 2 and 3.
It has a full use case assignment similar to part 2 assignment .
For part 1 u dont even need this book if u can get to all the resources for UML etc.
