not a high score but only tried to pass with my bad english :-)
Subjects of my Test: - JSF, Servlets, EL, TagLibs (ca. 20%) - Securety (10%) - EJB (10%) - Messaging and Integtion (5%) - Patterns (15%) - Common Architecture (15%) - Design Concepts and Priciples (15 %) - Securety (10%)
My feeling is that the level of the questions varies havy. Some questions are very basic and some question are confusing and misleading. The questions don't require a deep understandig, but the the scope is wide.
My preparation. I think it was a good mixture (took 4 Weeks including 2 curses at sun):
- Gof Patterns (must have) - J2EE Patterns (must have) - Studyguide, but I think it was not importent lecture: http://java.boot.by/scea5-guide/ - SUN Materials from SL 425 Curse. (not helpful) - SUN Materials from FJ-310 Curse. (helpful for Servlets, JSP, EJB, Messgaing, WS, bad for Securety) - Sun Blueprint for JMS (verry helpful)
