I have passed SCBCD 5.0 yesterday. It has been almost 3 years since SCWCD... Ok, this time I got only 77% :roll: (47 questions out of 61), but with about 3 weeks of study. I used Mastering EJB 3.0 (4th Ed.), Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Guide and Enthuware's EJBPlus V5 for SCBCD 5.0.
I read the Mastering EJB book up to the chapter about Timers, used appendix B and D for reference, as well as MK's Guide and took the tests from EJBPlus. That and some background knowledge from EJB 2.1 and Entities helped me get the certification. Ok, it was only 77%, but with only 3 weeks (my voucher was about to expire), I think it is a good outcome, after all.
Now, time to put some extra effort to get my SCEA!
