Hi ranchers,
I want to take SCEA5 part1 exam soon and I have read all books about the exam. Now I'd like to buy some mock exams for practice. If I finish Whizlabs SCEA 5.0 and figure all questions out, can I pass it?

Thanks in advance
Vince

Yes, I would recommend Whizlab.

I did try Whizlab and other leading simulator and I found, though it has, comparatively less questions but they are of near and good quality questions to SCEA exam. After going through Whizlab exams, you could expect 'similar nature' questions in SCEA exam.

At the same time, prepare hard for exam, just simulator isn't enough. Simulators will only help you in preparation. The solid the preparation, the more good to you.

For more info, see my post - http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/scea_j2ee/message/36382.

Good luck!

Cheers!

I missed your to address your questioin - "If I finish Whizlabs SCEA 5.0 and figure all questions out, can I pass it?", don't even expect to clear SCEA exam by just taking Whizlab questions. As I mentioned earlier, it will only enhance your understanding on JEE and exam.

My suggestion:
1. Prepare hard on SCEA topics, make sure to study each and every objective under all sections listed for the exam.
2. Attempt simulators and google for SCEA questionaire and you can try some free exams, again you gota google.
3. Most of the articles/materials/books on SCEA 5 still hold good except for obvious API updates such as EJB, Servlet, JSP and addition of new technologies like JSF. So, don't be reluctant to refer even old marterial/articles/books.

I would suggest the following for prearing SCEA 5 part 1:
1. EJB 3 in action book - Debu Panda, Reza Rahman and Derek Lane
2. J2EE design and development book - Rod Johnson - excellent - design
related info
3. J2EE development without EJB - Rod Johnson - excellent - design
related info
4. Deisgn Patterns book - GOF - excellent
5. Core J2EE Patterns book, Second Edition - Deepak Alur, John Crupi
and Dan Malks - excellent
6. SCEA for J2EE Study Guide book - Mark Cade and Simon Robers -
good refresher.
7. SCEA for Java EE Exam Study Guide book - Paul R. Allen and Joseph
J. Bambara Rok
8. The Java EE 5 Tutorial book - sun site
9. Design Patterns Java Companion book - James W. Cooper
10. Whizlabs preparation material - IMHO, must have simulator
11. EPractize labs - ok to have simulator
12. 'SCEA_J2EE' yahoo group is very good, you can find good uploaded
resources
13. Google for other topics - WebServices etc...
14. When in doubt, always refer to specs.

Good luck!

Cheers!

I think that a simulator from java.sun.com web site is pretty good with a quality questions. Its url is http://www.sun.com/training/certification/resources/epractice.html. It is little bit expensive about 55$ for 120 questions.


Good luck,
