Hello Friends, I have cleared the SCBCD with 84%. I have used HF EJB,EJB specs, softSCBCD and also Monson-Haefel. I don't have any exp. on EJB. Taken almost 2 months with 9 hrs of working. Read specs and monson-haefel once...and HF EJB twice. I scored in softSCBCD mocke exams :: I- 65, II- 71, III- 76, IV- 83, V- 81 respectively. And in HF EJb scored 71. Exam was bit tough. softSCBCD is really excellant simulator and services also very good. cheat sheets by Veletin's is excellant and everybody have to use it.
