Hi,

Today I have passed SCBCD 5.0 with 96%. I got 59 out of 61 right.

Here are the resources I have used during my preparation.

Few months back I read EJB 3.0 in Action by Debu Panda .

Recently (having seen many people recommending Oreilly EJB 3.0) , I have purchased Orielly EJB 3.0 book a month back and read that. I liked it but, it has so many silly printing mistakes, which really made me unhappy. During exam preparation, you do not want any printing mistake take a mark away from you. But I must confess, overall that is good book.

I read EJB 3.0 Specs (not completely because they are too boring) and JPA sepcs completely. Along with Simplified Specs also. I read SCBCD 5.0 study guide by Mikalai Zaikin , which is a simplified version of Core and JPA secs. It is good to review everything through that.

When it comes to Mock exams, I used Entuware EJB plus v5. It was good, though I could not agree with a few answers. Overall it is worth taking those mock exams. Mock exams are the ultimate preparation. You should never get to any certification exam without proper exposure to mock exams.

I have used Netbeans IDE 6.1 and Glassfish v2 for practice. That was about my preparation.

Needless to mention, www.javaranch.com, is the best website for Java certification. For all three - SCJP 5.0, SCWCD 1.4 and SCBCD 5.0 - I have used it.

Of course a good book on SCBCD 5.0, will make the preparation process a little easier. You know the importance of SCJP 5.0 by Kathy during SCJP preparation.

I thank ranchers for all their information and support.

Srikanth.
