I'm very happy to say that I received my "welcome package" today, with my certificate and cool SCEA member card. The Cert Manager database is still messed up though, so I have no idea what grades were.
Thanks to everyone on this forum. This site has been a great source of information. In case anyone is interested in reading my notes, they are online at http://architecture.webhop.org/ .
For those working on part 2, I can say that I did use EJBs, but did not use JSF. I used Stripes for my presentation layer. For UML, I paid for a 3 month subscription to Poseidon.
