Ok, I took the exam today (1.5 hours ago), here is my report:
The duration of the exam: 4 Hours
Number Of Questions: 183
Topics: Everything covered by EJB 2.0 spec except BMP Entity Beans (BMP are my favorite Entity Beans (()
It took me 3.5 hours to answer them all (for the comparsion: i needed something like 55 minutes for the part I of the SCEA, but i was better prepared for the SCEA)
The most of the Questions were not very hard (of course there are exceptions, for example there was one EJB-QL Question that could be used in a IQ-Test). Some of them were tricky - expect that answers to some of the questions are not very obvious (well, just like in the SCJP Exam)
As far as i could see, it i VERY important do know the responsibilities of the EJB-Roles (Deployer, App. Assembler, ...), the lifecycle of the beans (Session, Entity, MDB) - it is very helpfull if you can memorize the state diagrams of the beans. There were many questions about EJB-QL, session beans, MDBs, CMR, CMP and CMT, and fewer about Transactions, Securty, Interoperability and Exception-Handling.
Just another warning about the test:
There is no way to review the D&D Questions - if you try it you must answer the whole question from scratch! If you are not sure about some D&D Question, write down what you have entered so that you can reconstruct it on a review.
