Hi Dushy,
Hearty Congrats.Fantastic Score.

Can you give some tips on preperation for the first part.

1.Did you use Whizlabs Mock tests at all?
2.Did you use Mark Cade's Guide.
3.What did you do for EJB Prep?
4.What did you use for Design Patterns Prep?

Over all how tough was the exam compared to any Mock Tests you
took? If you have used Whizlab's Mock Tests, How different was
the Mock Exam from Whizlabs?

The reason i am asking so many questions about Whizlabs is i am
currently using them for my prep.

Also I am kind of preparing on and off for a long time. So now
for the last couple of months i stopped the prep.

I just want your suggestion on how to restart the whole thing
and what is the best way to go about it?

I am sorry for a lengthy mail. I am frusstrated because for the last
so many months i am going back and forth and have not stayed focussed
on any particular prep.

If you have time can you please give a detailed reply.

Thanks,
Shyam

Shyam,

Thanks and Sorry for the late reply.

I did not use the Whizlabs mock tests. I used other ones found on the SCEA links page.

I used 2 books:
1. Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide
by Mark Cade, Simon Roberts

2. Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051)
by Paul Allen, Joseph Bambara

For EJB preparation, i went through "Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans - Ed Roman". But i read the spec a couple of times before this (for my SCBCD). But, the level of EJB questions in SCEA is not too deep.

Design patterns -> GoF book.

My preparation actually did not go too well as it ended up being stretced over a period of 5 months. (Have a couple of weeks of preparation at max) More than all of these, i felt the mock tests to be a lot helpful. Make sure you do atleast 6-7 of them.
