Hey Korecherla !

In fact I scored exactly 78% in SCWCD1.4 myself and went on to score 88% in SCBCD. [I did not have the advantage of HF JSP-Servlets as the book was not out here in India when I took SCWCD last November]. I had prior experince in both JSP-Servlets and EJBs. So, I think SCBCD is slightly easier than SCWCD, nevertheless, one has to study seriously for it to score. I feel.. had I put in equal effort in SCBCD as I did in SCWCD I'd have easily scored over 90%.

Just because a bunch of people post they got 90% in an exam means absolutely nothing.
Consider a room of 100 people. Also assume that the higher your salary the more respect you get.
I walk in an ask "What is your salary?"
Some will immediately reply "I make 100k per year!"
Another replies "Well, I make 120k!"
A third says "Well, I make only 84k".
After a few minutes of these people making such statements, how many people down in the 20k, 30k, 40k and 50k brackets are likely to speak up? Very few, out of shear embarrassment.
But also, how do you know they are even telling the truth?

Do not try to draw any significance from a bunch of people posting "I scored 90% in the SCBCD exam".
It is irrelevent to your own success in the exam, and most importantly, it is NOT indicative of the difficulty of the exam.

Hi all,

I agree with Jeff's comments. I took the exam this week and I found the exam to be a good exam, where the questions separate those who know the EJB spec from those who don't. Those who are well prepared tend to find the exam easier , but that's because they have a good knowledge of the subject, not because the test itself is too easy.
While I was in the test center waiting for my results to be printed I talked to some prometric employees and they told me that the majority of candidates that pass the exam (yes, a lot of people fail it) score around 67-75%. Given that I concluded that the people like me, who scored 90+ studied hard and really deserved their score.
That's it. I would just like to finish saying that what really matters is what you learn in the process of preparing for the exam. This is priceless and no matter what score you get you will be satisfied.

Best Regards,
Stefan
