I also know some of design patterns like SessionFacade,Service locator,Intercepting filter,MVC etc.

My general advice with regards to whether or not you should go for the exam is the basic concept of "what do you want to be doing with your career?" If you're a programmer looking for the next certification to take and are quite content being a programmer, then the SCEA may not be the right fit for you. If you're looking to move into application architecture, then it's probably a good idea.

If you're seriously considering doing the exam, but don't have much experience doing the OOAD portion, then I think you might be best served by practicing it. Get a few books, such as Fowler and Larman, and go through them, brushing up on the parts that you're not sure of. Do some basic architecting when you're working on code as part of your day - practice is what will get you through this exam.

Good luck!
