Today I took the SCBCD 5 upgrade exam and scored 100%. The last time I took the SCBCD 1.3 exam in 2003, I scored 98%.
I would like to thank everyone in this forum, especially Christophe Verre, for helping during my preparation.
The following is how I have prepared for the exam: - Read Oreilly EJB3 (chapters 1 to 17; didnt complete the excercises) - Read the Core and Persistence specifications (didnt complete everything) - Read Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Guide - Do Enthuware SCBCD 5 tests (5 tests) - Do Sun SCBCD 5 ePractice tests (2 tests) - Read Raghavendra Balgi's Last Minute Notes
I was preparing for PMP at the same time as I prepared for SCBCD 5 and spent an average of 1 month each for both exams. I passed PMP also.
