Great! How much is it going to be?
Is it really a book? The link above takes you to a page that looks like a "Exam simulator" plus some study notes.

Thanks,
Alex

Hi,

Is there a concise reading list for the SCEA 5.0 exam? What would you recommend as the essential reading list?

Some of the reading lists that have been posted are exhaustive and would neither be practical or affordable.

Regards

Paul

Hello Ganeshan,

Welcome once again to Java Ranch.

I have been evaluating SCEA5 exam simulators provided by Whizlabs and Epratize labs..

The simulator provided by Epratize labs has lot of questions about the new SCEA5 syllabus and you can purchase the SCEA Part 1,2 &3 for around $100.. The only drawback I found while evaluating the trial demo was that the explanation for answers was OK it was not elaborative.

Also after being a rancher for 2 weeks I have seen comments from other fellow forum members that many questions in Epractize labs are repetitive and the quality of the mock questions is far easy to solve then the actual exam.. The actual exams are very tough compared to the mocks..

Please comment on the same ..

Thanks for your time

Cheers
Paren

Paren,

Each product has its own strength and weakness. The aim of exam simulator is to practice more and understand the concepts easily rather then studying vast materials. No simulators will give exactly similar to actual certification questions.

It is very difficult to control the redundancy in any certification mock exam simulators. For example you can prepare JSF life cycles in different formats with similar answers.

EPractize Labs SCEA 5.0 Training Labs covers complete exam objectives in the form of PPT, Flash Cards, Quiz, Mock Exams, etc., and it is enough to pass with good score.

We recommend to complete the preparation (achieve the goals set during plan phase) at least once to make sure that he/she has completed the study.

We also recommend SCEA aspirants to plan their preparation by our SCEA 5.0 Preparation Time calculator at http://www.epractizelabs.com/scea-exam-preparation.html.

We assure that those who are achieved the basic goals in EPractize Labs products can attain their actual certification easily. http://www.epractizelabs.com/money-back-guarantee.html

Thanks a lot for your comments Ganesh.

I am planning to give SCEA5 Part I exam in next 3 weeks. Would you recommend the epractize exam simulator so as to have assurance and pass the exam.. I have been studying for the exam for past 2 weeks approx ..

Do you think I have sufficient time to pass the exam.. I had used the Epractize SCEA exam time calculator 2 weeks ago and it suggested that I need 111 hours of preparation time ..

Thanks for Your Time.

Cheers
Paren
