First of all I would like to thank everybody for helping me in achieving the 91% in SCBCD (I took it today). I will quickly summarize my prep details which could help fellow SCBCD aspirants. I used the following for my prep
1. HFEJB 2. EJB Spec 3. Enthuware's EJBPlus for mock tests 4. ejbcertificate.com for mock tests. 5. AND javaranch
All the above helped me in one way or another. The unconventional way of explanation in HFEJB was distracting ar first but once I got into the flow, ride was cool. Helped me memorize stuff that needs to be memorized. But it had lots of mistakes. Anybody who wants to use this book first thing I would suggest is book mark the errata, both confirmed errata and unconfirmed errata. (I don't know why HFEJB authors or concerned authorities neither confirm nor deny the unconfirmed errata). ejbcertificate and EJBPlus helped me figure out the mistakes in HFEJB and a skim through EJB spec cleared all the doubts I had. The only flaw in the EJBplus is, in the mock test question would say chose 1 answer but in the answer the tool would show 2 answers. When a query needs to be built (drag and drop) the tool would mark your answer wrong even if it is correct (could be a bug in the tool). If you check the answer provided by the tool it would be same as the one you would have answered. But its not that big of a deal as you have the right answer and thats all you care about.
Yesterday I was reading one of the Javarancher's post. In the real test The questions which require drag and drop cannot be reviewed. If you try to review you will have to anwser the question again (Previous answer would be deleted). So when I took the test I answered all such questions at the end.
And finally Javaranch admins please excuse me for this post. I know that this post belongs to Results section but I thought the above information could help the SCBCD aspirants. Please feel free to move this to Results section if needed.
Good luck guys. I got to go to bug SCEA (my next target) test takers ;-)
