Hi All,

I passed Part 1 with 72% today. Not a very good score though.

I was studying on-and-off for some time.. but for last 10-15 days work schedule and health problems did not let me concentrate.

Moving Part2 now. Can somebody tell me about a good starting point or some reading materials etc. to prepare for part2, before i get the voucher...

thanks and regds,
Ravinder Singh.

Don�t bother about the score. Some people thinks that this is important, but I do not.

I recommend you to buy the voucher and download your assignment ASAP. You will have a year to think about it and, as you may find out, you will change your project many times.

Please be warned that there are subtle differences between the assignments! Some people hasn�t realized yet...

First, are you experienced in J2EE development? Have you ever used EJB�s? If not, this is the time to begin. I recomend HEAD FIRST EJB, by Kathy Sierra.

Second, buy the "bible": J2EE Paterns by Depak Alur and others. Read it! I assume that you have read the GoF book, right?

Third, buy and read Mark Cade�s book for SCEA certification. Pay close attention to his sample application.

And finally, download StarUML and begin creating some rough designs.

!!Congratulations Ravinder!!
Perhaps the questions are now harder than before :-) I have passed part 1 3 weeks ago and my score was 75%. I feel also little bit ashamed because I feel myself quite experienced. I think the problem was I read questions more than 3 times to be sure to perceive them correctly and then I had time problem to answer them in time. But generally speaking it was good exam and I answered all of them.
