Hi Ranchers,

My SCBCD exam is on 11th of this month. I am struggling to finish HF ejb. Can some people give details of how they manage study with their jobs. This will inspire me and others as well to study.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Raj

Hi Raj

I studied HF EJB regularly on my way to work in the train. I did not rush the preparation but I tried to use whatever little time was available on hand. I am a busy professional working long hours on a project that is going to production shortly. Reading the various postings in this forum regularly will be quite helpful in your preparation.

Thanks
-- Ravi

Raj,

I would suggest going through HFEJB completely, cover to cover. However, don't try to memorize everything you read. Get a "feeling" for the material. Then go through it again, but only focus on the areas you definitely do not understand; this makes the read much faster and allows you to reinforce the material you have previously read.

Once you have gone through the book a few times, I would suggest downloading an exam simulator. I found the EJBPlus simulator to be quite helpful. While there are errors in it, as well as spelling and grammar mistakes, it really gets you thinking about EJB. I found that it helped clarify the areas that I had trouble with originally from HFEJB. It also made me appreciate the spec. I found that the spec was useful when I didn't want a saccharine-coated explanation of something from HFEJB; I went to it when I wanted the low-down.

Take my comments FWTW. I have not yet written the SCBCD exam, but I am prepared to write it this week.

Good luck!

Cheers,
Jason

Thanks Shiv, Ravi and Jason for your replies ...

I have picked up momentum again and wish to finish the book soon. After my second read I will go onto the specs.

All the best for your exam Jason, please update us with your experience once you pass the exam....

Regards,

Raj
