Hi All,
I have successfully cleared my SCWCD 1.4 with 86%.
When i start to prepare for SCBCD, i see SCBCD 1.3 and SCBCD 5 versions.
I already have Head First SCBCD Book.
On seeing the posts on SCBCD Certification, i came to know that the HEad First Book i got is for EJB 2.0 i.e its for SCBCD 1.3
I am totally confused about which version of SCBCD to write.
Also i heard during my SCWCD Exam is that there is no SCWCD 1.3, but luckily i prepared for the latest version SCWCD 1.4. So a great Escape.
Also i heard that there is only 1 SCWCD and 1 SCBCD exam of 3 hrs duration.
So i dont want to suffer if i prepared for SCBCD 1.3 and at the time of taking this SCBCD 1.3, this version of Exam should exist.
Someone Please give me a clear picture about this and also which version is the best to take up for the Exam

The things you've learned by studying EJB2.0 will not be a waste of time, as most concepts are the same in EJB3.0. The use of annotations and Java Persistance API is the big change. I'd recommend you to go for SCBCD5.0 are not in a hurry. You can check which books can be used at the SCBCD Links. And also check the threads of ranchers who successfully passed, they contain valuable information. Some of them are listed in the Wall of Fame.

SCBCD5.0 has been released since quite some time now. You can still pass SCBCD1.3, but I'd go for 5.0 instead. By the way, you can check the exam versions here.
