Hi JavaRanchers,

I finally cleared my SCEA Part 1 with 87% marks (100% in all sections except in EJB, Security and Legacy Connectivity). But I think I did pretty OK. Thanks to everyone here for their views, and discussion. Mock exams on the net hepled me a lot. So did Notes from many people including Ramu.

Following are some mocks I did:

Regards,
Lokesh.
