Hi ALL,

I have completed HFEJB twice. Theer is too much of theory.. Huh.. This method in that interface...... Also I have heard people saying that reading Specs is also required. The Specs has only 500+ pages!!!

Does anybody have wayout? means how to go about studying? What to study? How much to study? Please help as I am finding it very difficult to prepare for the Certification.

If you read twice HF EJB - you should be fine on the test.

My web-site http://java.boot.by/bcd-guide/ may be helpful too.

regards,
MZ

Hi Palak,
You seem to be more like me. I too felt the same (read my previous posts) ..more theory in BCD but I realized it initially when i completed 4 chapters....but then I started reading the specs not the whole theory...but some diagrams & some imp pts....also Mikalai notes r also the best...they r small & easy to understand. U can complete his notes within 2-3 days( as u've already finished HFEJB)

Does this mean that reading specs is not essential?? If I skip reading specs in what range can i score?? above 85???

It is difficult to say as the expectation of different people is heterogeneous.

I used HF EJB together with MZ's notes without reading the spec, but still, I can score 90+. However, this is not guarantee.

The more you read & study, the more you learn.

I read the book in one month, didn't read the spec or blueprints, and scored 87%. Fairly ok I guess.

I guess this also means that you shouldn't really expect much from someone with this kind of java certification..
