I am planning to take the SCEA part 1 test in next week. I would like to take some mock tests before attending the real one. Can you please help me by providing the links? and I would like to purchase the wizlabs package..would you recommend that?

Thanks in advance,

Whizlabs simulator is like opening a letter with chainsaw. They over complicated the concepts. In reality SCEA is much simpler.

Thanks Srinivas,

I went thru the questions in 'SCEA Practice questions.zip' in scea_prep yahoo group. do you think they resemble the one's in real exam? I took 2-3 exams from the links provided by JavaRanch.
I am just curious about the level of difficult in the real exam. I want to plan to take the test accordingly

I think the questions you referring to are 'similar' to real exam. The key thing is read the concepts well and think their applicability in real projects.

I will give you an example, you know what ejbPassivate() does, however do you know which pattern resembles ejbPassivate()? These kind of things you need to look for.

Hi Srinivas,

Is it facade pattern that was used in ejbPassivate() method?.

Thanks Srinivas,
Harini, I think you are right. ejbPassivate() follows Facade pattern

Harini,

I think we interpreted it in a wrong way. At second thought, I assume ejbPassivate() will follow the 'Memento' pattern. This is because it stored the object's internal state that can be restored at later time.

Ranchers, please clarify !!! :roll:

Hi,

Vinay/Sreenivas you guys are right. Just now read the Memento pattern "To record an object internal state without violating encapsulation and reclaim it later without knowledge of the original object."

Thanks,
Hari.
