Hi All,

Thanks to Mr.Bert and other ranchers for their keen guidence.
Yesturday,i appeared for SCBCD5.0.It was not very tough to answer after reading EJB3.0 Specs.

ANALYSIS :
1)As said by other ranchers who took Exam earlier,it's very important to know about Persistense API.50% of Exam questions were related to the same.
2)EmbeddedId etc annotaions are quite simple,if you have read it by specs.
3)Be comfortable with ql.Many questions related to OneTOMany ,ManytoOne ..etc
4)If you have good experience of earlier EJB2.0,2.1, Transaction,Exception,Security questions are quite similar.(easiest part of Exam)
5)Exam checks for Timer interface,few but easy questions.
6)Almost 8-10 questions about MDBs.
7)Unlike SCBCD for EJB2.0,very few Questions of DD.

DIFFICULTY:
The Toughest part of Exam was sitting for 5.15 hours.So in this way Exam
checks for you patience and sitting capabilities too..

In 2.5 hours,I finished my first round of all 180 questions.Then i focussed on the difficult ones those i skipped earlier.But i spent full duration 5.15 hours of Exam.Result has not been declared.So waiting for the score as it will come after 4-6 weeks.

But there is a thing,Of course,Reading Specs is enough and It makes you aware of concepts.But it also needs 1-2 months of Experience on EJB3.0.This is what i missed because I had no hand on experience of it.

Honestly saying,i missed a HEAD FIRST book for EJB3.0 because after reading
specs or any other book,anyone can realize,Head First makes things very Easy and interesting to understand the concepts.

..Well!! Thanks to Sun and Mr.Bert for Such a nice Exam.

Regards
Shaival
