I gave my scbcd5 today and secured 93%......these are the steps I followed:
step1: Enterprise JavaBeans, 3.0....read chapters 1 to 17....it took around 12 days(around 3 hours per day plus some office time also)
step2: straightaway jumped to enthuware to check where do I stand....did the questions chapter wise so as to judge myself in each area.....hardly got 20% questions right....most of them were bouncers for me...but now i realized where should i concentrate next time i read any book(took 4 days...office time only)
step3: The most important step.....Read Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Guide....its a must for dis exam...either go through the specifications or read his notes...but i think the 2nd option is much much better(took 3 days...office time plus 2 hours at home).....Thanks alot
Mikalai...now I will be using your scdjws guide also....
step4: went back to Enterprise JavaBeans, 3.0...read it again...(around 5 days)
step5: did enthuware again...dis time got around 75% correct....improved all ma concepts....(3 days)
step6: went to prometric centre and gave the exam.....the whole process took around 30 days(around 3 hrs per day at home plus office hours)
These were the steps I followed...might not suit everybody....
I would like to add I dint have any prior knowledge of EJBs...knew just few concepts of EJB
2.1....but I had a good hands on and experience in spring and hibernate technology...so that helped me a lot....my next target is SCDJWS....cheers
