Hi All,

I've just passed the exam, but the score is not high.

I used:
- O'Reilly EJB3: Very good.
- Mikalai Zaikin`s "SCBCD 5.0 Study guide": Very good.
- EJB3 Specs: partial reference.
- Enthuware Mock exam: Excellent and close to the real exam
- Whizlab: Not mature, many errors. Terrible bugs: 145min (2hr 25min) != 1hr 45min, the final test could not be graded.

Thanks, good luck everyone !

Hey Congrats buddy.
By the way can you say anything about EJB 3 in Action for preparation?

I occasionally studied EJB 3.0 for about one year, and began to prepare the test in free working-time about three months ago, and fully focused on it in last week. I got 76% on the Last Day Test (Enthuware), but I found the real test is a little harder than the Enthuware. I don't know whether self-estimation on EJB 3.0 knowledge at the test beginning will influence the test difficulty or not. I a little over-estimated myself on EJB 3.0.

Hi ,

In the exam objectives its metioned in single line annotaions/xml equivalents, but in reality there are some many of them . Do we have to memorize all the XML elements in ejb-jar.xml , persistence.xml , orm.xml and also the annotations ? Do you think on the real exam it is very important to compelety know the xml & annotations ?
Which one should be given more importance .Please advice .

Hi there, I think you need to know all annotations. For xml, you need remember as many as you can.
