hi,ranchers

i passed the part-I with 83% yesterday. here is the results:

Concepts.........................83%
Common Architectures.............66%
Legacy Connectivity..............100%
EJB..............................77%
EJB container Model..............100%
Protocols........................100%
Applicability of J2EE............66%
Design Patterns..................80%
Messaging........................100%
Internationalization.............50%
Security.........................100%

i don't very satisfy the result for some key places not very ideal, such as common architect, ejb, applicability of J2EE.

there were many scenario topics in my examination in these parts. maybe my english is not very good enough to comprehend them.

but anyway, i passed it.

the following was the material for me preparing for the part-I:

1)Mark Cade's study guide book - to the point, but too simplest i think, missing some parts such as messaging.

2)Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide(Exam 310-051) by Paul Allen and Joseph Bambara <ISBN:0072226870> - very detail. someones complained it is a bit redundancy. i don't agree. if you are not very familiar with the whole J2EE. it is a good guid book.

3) GOF Design Patterns(by Gamma...) - the very very classical book for design patterns. it was the first time i touched design patterns. i used some of them into my work, feel not bad

4) The Unified Modeling Language User Guide(by Grady Booch...) - actually i did not spend too much time on this part for i often use uml in my work. and in the part-one exam, the topic on uml is very easy.

5) web site:
- javaranch
- www.javaqueries.com (6 mock simulators, they are enough, if u pass them, u pass the real part-one exam )

6) Notes:
- Java Architect Notes - Balaji (very detail)
- Chris_Broecker_Notes (well formed, briefly)

7) others:
- scea_prep, yahoo group, you can find some valuable files there.
- Addison.Wesley.Java.Design Patterns A tutorial (aid for GOF)
- ejb 2.0 specification

my experience was:
1) study the knowledge points related with part-I sections step by step if you still not very familiar with J2EE the whole blue print
2) make notes for your progress
3) focus on EJB
4) do the self test in your books to use what u learned
5) taking several simulating mocks before you take part in your real part-I exam till u get above 80%.
6) stop mocking to reading your notes and outline knowledge points in the books in the two days before that day.
7) take it easy, keep your head or brain fresh when u sitting on the chair in the examination room.

hopes what i said is a bit meaningfule for those preparing part-I.

I plan to pass the left in Oct. anyone is in the same way with me?

thanks all in the 'crawl'.

Congratulations Newman! I wonder why Sun doesn't offer exams in different language, afterall they are big on internationalization!

Question: Where did you find notes listed in your post as
6) Notes:
- Java Architect Notes - Balaji (very detail)
- Chris_Broecker_Notes (well formed, briefly)

Thanks

hi,Chintan

you can find many notes in several groups of yahoo(http://groups.yahoo.com/), they are:
1) scea_prep
2) whyscea

balaji's notes is in the scea_prep group,after u register be a member of this group, u can login the homepage of this group, and go into the [files] category, belowing the 'SCEA Reference' folder, you can download the notes.

also you can find lots of valuable materials there, such as some mock simulator
