HI,

i am taking up the exam in few days, i request to kindly clarify my doubts

1)what is the passing percentage(how much should be right out of 180)?
2)what if i passed the exam, will i be getting a certificate from SUN ?
3)if so why to write the SCBCD exam again when the same goes live (i have a option of saying that i have passed Beta exam).
4)suppose i don't take up the SCBCD,Will the employers take the beta exam into consideration (if i had passed )
5)i don't have much knowledge/pjt exp on EJB, but i have studied Mastering EJB and MikalaiZaikins notes..will this do ?
6)what if i completed the exam in 2 hours ?
7)i would like to know the exact pattern of the questions, for example questions on timer (may be the question is tick which bean cannot be used for timer, then just find if there is stateful session bean). are the questions like these or you will be given a EJB code on timer to analyse ?.
are the questions entirely based on theory ?
8) when we will be getting our results ?

5)People Say That The MZ's Notes Are Good,Still You Should Go Thorugh Other People Thread In The Same Forum They Would Suggest You More.
And this is what Mr Amit suggests
transaction, exceptions and security from HF book for ejb 2.0
and then upgrade to ejb3.0 very small change in ejb 3.0

6)End It,But You Wont Be Able To,Until And Unless You Skip The Questions.
7)According To Sivaram's Experience
Persistence, Entity Beans, Query Language,Transactions (50% of Questions)
Session bean (15%)
Message driven Bean (15%)
Security (6%)
Others(14%)

Hi, rudreshashok.

The beta test is intended also to validate the questions. I found, for example, questions with duplicated itens - a error in the test, of curse. I think that such a question will be discarted.

I believe the passing sccore will be defined taking the beta-takers result as input. In any way, the passing score will be something between 60% and 70%. This is what I think...

I did not saw what happened to SCP 1.4 and 5.0. Was the passing score the same? This can give a hint about this question.
