Hi All,

I've just passed the exam this morning.
I answered 8 questions wrong.

Almost 50% of the questions were about JPA.
Just 1 Drag&Drop question (I'm lucky because this type of question can't be reviewed!)
4 questions about Security (I failed 3: for me it was a difficult part of the exam).

I studied 1 year (only during free-time, at work).
I used:
- O'Reilly EJB3: Very good introduction to EJB3
- EJB3 Specs: my only reference
- Enthuware Mock exam: Very good and close to the real exam

Many thanks to all of you: This javaranch forum was my best help !

Hi Beno�t,

Many Congratulations

Hey you didn't used EJB in Action, Don't you feel you should use EJB in Action if you are using O'Reilly EJB3?

I am also using O'Reilly EJB3 and not EJB in Action so what you think is it sufficient? Or should i go for EJB in Action also.
Please Reply.

Thanks and Regards,
Alim

Hi Benoit

Congrats !!!

You definitely deserve it ..

Benoit just one question did you read Mikalai Zaikin`s "SCBCD 5.0 Study guide"
or just only the EJB Specs.

And did you do any practice codes.(EJB programs)

Thanks

Hi All,

Thanks for your messages.
I didn't used "EJB in Action" because I needed only one book to read as introduction (and I choose O'Reilly because I know this editor and I have confidence).
Then I used the specs directly as they are the reference and are really clear, well written and easy to understand.
I think other books or notes (like Mikalai Zaikin) are just recompilations of the specs.
I think they can be helpful but personally, when I understand the main line, I prefer study the details with the specs.

I work with EJB in my job and I wrote little examples (1 EJB + 1 Interface + 1 Client) to verify some points (exceptions, BMT MDB without commit, etc...)

Hi latha selva,

You need to read only Core and Persistence Specs.

And for me, as I prepared it for one year, the exam was quite easy.
I recommend the use of an exam simulator.
It was really helpful and helped me acquire confidence: I went to the exam without stress.
I used Enthuware's one.
