Hi Seema and Val- Thank you for participating in this forum and also making your SCBCD simulator available for the book promotion. Would you know if, for an EJB beginner, a thorough read of HF EJB would be sufficient to answer most of the questions in the simulator or a reading of the relevant portion of the EJB 2.0 specs is also required. Also, can you recommend a good preparation approach for an SCBCD candidate who's an EJB beginner but otherwise has worked with Java/JSP/Servlets and wants to take up the certification exam in a reasonably short time frame (say, 45 days with an average of 2 hours of effort per day). Thanks, Arun.
hi Arun For a beginner, two months' time should be sufficient, but then time required varies from person to person. You can assess your readiness for the exam by taking the practice exams from our simulator. My article can guide you towards preparing for the exam. Apart from reading the listed books and specs, I strongly recommend participating in this discussion forum on a regular basis. Hope this helps. Thanks
