yea,

I found security and Legacy system connectivity very tough in exam. They are no match with that in the mock tests. BTW, I don't have any real time experience as an architect, I studied everything for the exam.
lack of experience reflected in the exam

Congrats Vinay,

I went through a lot of Mock with different results...

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks Michael and nagaraju,

Michael, security always seemed okay to me while doing practice tests, however I failed miserably in the real test. In my view, Security and Legacy System connectivity are the toughest ones in the test.

I read following books for SCEA -1

Head First EJB's
Head First Design Patterns
Martin Folwer - UML
and all the tutorials/ white papers and notes prepared by 'John Wetherbie' and others. ( all from SCEA online resources at JavaRanch).
also some notes by Balaji and sample questions from SCEA_prep yahoo groups helped me.

Good luck guys !
