2) how long to be ready to pass the exam? This one depends on where you are when you start, and what your test-taking and memorization skills are like. I will make a WILD guess at 120 hours or more, if you do NOT know EJB going in. But it could be MUCH longer, and it could be MUCH less. People who know RMI, for example, and have worked with databases/SQL probably have an advantage in a shorter learning time.

So Kathy, do u mean that one month should be enough to prepare for the exam for experienced people? I got RMI, SQL skill but not much on EJB... I guess I am one of them, who should pass the exam within one month... :roll: Can u suggest something? Thank you...

I think you should read EJB spec and HF EJB in one month too.
The exam should test your knowledge and understanding, not your memory.
the bad thing about these certifications is to memorize stuff. I'm struggling memorizing stuff for SCWCD (deployment descriptor stuff, listeners, tag libraries - I hate them- )...

The first time I read the specs it was almost like a fresh start and it took me abt a month to get a grasp of the subject. Now after the specs I don think the book will take a long time.
Yes I agree with Pradeep, one month for specs and one month for the book should have u score above 95% for sure.

I think, if you read only EJB spec/Another book, it not enough.
YOU MUST HAVE :
Experience in EJB (development).
It is very important and help you learn EJB more speed......

Try 100 things. 2 will work out, but you will never know in advance which 2. This tiny ad might be one:
