Here is an old SCEA exam simulator that I actually don't recommend.
http://www.geekinterview.com/talk/84-scea-certification-310-051-simulator.html

Just posting it here incase people have a better experience with it than I did.

Pros:
1. Holds 239 questions, of which any sized subset can be chosen at random.
2. Vaguely worth doing for the general JEE scenario type questions.
3. It is free.

Cons:
1. Seems to be for the older SCEA Part I exam. (Not EJB 3, just EJB 2. No JSF or JPA questions).
2. Some questions did not display correctly, even after a standard, straightforward installation.
3. Some questions were open ended, that is, it did not tell you the correct number of answers required. (These are the toughest multiple choice type questions you can get, when you don't kow how many answers to check off).
3. There were Java coding example questions. (Here is a section of code. Does it compile, throw an exception or run properly ?") I very much doubt there will be Java examples in the actual Part I.

Hi Ajay,
So the mock exam from Chinatag. It seems to be priced at $49.99. I tried the trial demo, about 10 questions I think it was. There were answers but no explanations at all (in the trial version). Also, the trial version was simply a set of typed questions, followed by the choices and the answer.

Q5 asks about SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2 and using REST in a web service for an SOA architecture. It asks which technology should you use? and it gave 4 specs, JAXP, JAXB, JAX-WS and JAX-RPC. The answer was JAX-WS. Well, I have the JAX-WS spec on my machine and it doesn't mention REST at all. Not to mention you can't effectively integrate a REST web service into an SOA architecture (because there is no way to commonly identify the REST services interface. The latest JAX-RS spec, still under development, should help address this). I consider this an incorrect answer, if it was a single choice question.

Considering I'm supposed to pay $49.99, I want no mistakes at all in my mock exam, and I'd expect an explanation for the answer they think is correct. I don't usually recommend Sun products, but for $5 more, you can get the official mock exam from Sun themselves, as an online ePractice exam, for $55.
