I have just passed SCBCD 5 with 98%. The exam, what should I write ?, is so easy. I feel a little disappoint because I have study so hard with a hope to get 80%. I have to study at level 10 and exam is at level 7->8.

The books I studied were
+ Spec EJB3 (JPA and core). This is very very excite book, although it is difficult to study. I have to read about 5 times. From the third time I feel rather understand. I read about 350 pages from these 2 book (200 from core and 150 from JPA)
+ Pro EJB3 JPA this is the very good, precise book (The examples are excellent)
+ EJB3 In Action (some places different from JPA spec (allow define public instance state in entity))
+ MasteringEJB4.pdf (some examples of source code still use pre final spec (accessType=Field)). This is very good and useful book.
+ OReilly Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 5th Edition. This is very good book for general knowledge but not good for very detail knowledge like spec
+ Prentice Hall PTR.Java EE 5 Tutorial, The (3rd Edition).chm. This tutorial is very detail especially security examples
+ Apress Beginning EJB3 Application Development. This book is excellent for guiding deploy application.

Mock test:
+ Enthuware
+ Whizlabs
+ TopCerts (452 Questions). Very excellent but not explain. Many question like real exam. Answers are very exactly
Sample exam of Sun (30Q)

Hi Mark,

My memory is not so good, I had to study and study again, practice with glassfish v1 and MyEclipse a lot. I think it took me about more than 400 hours to finish the exam

In my opinion, I think NetBeans doesn't have many shortcut keys like Eclipse and it also took me a lot of time to make acquainted. Lastly I found that MyEclipse is an excellent IDE for speeding up my study. NetBeans has all functions for developing JavaEE 5 but its short cut keys and response time are the shortcoming

eric khoa,

Congratulations for the journey you had and the result you got.

But please do not say "I have bad memory".

This is purely your fault and the belief developed by you.

Everybody have equal memory just we need to make postive statements about ourselves. like "I can remember any thing". and Meditate on it.

You will get good results.
