5-7 years of job experiences, SCEA is for the senior level people? and
how long does it take to prepare or what would be the average time preparation time?
(It took one month for me to finish SCJD.)

Senior level depends on each company, in some company senior level has work experience 10 years+.
Anyway, it depends on competency not *years*, a person who has 3 years of working experience might be better than another who has 15 years of working experience.

Regarding average time, I don't know, but it's possible to finish assignment in one month.

SCEA is not necessarily only for senior people. But senior people will be able to benefit from it greatly since they have most likely already experienced in real life the problems discussed in the assignment.

As for preparation time, if it took you 1 month to prepare for SCJD, I'm guessing you will probably need at least 3 months to prepare for all three parts (Part 1 multiple choice and Part 2/3 assignment/essay).

Happy studying!

I would state that SCEA is for senior people after all. Not only because it is difficult, though not impossible, to cover so much ground while fresh out of college but also for the because the role that a person with SCEA is supposed to fulfill: a mature, responsible, well-rounded, objective architect, also capable of leading a team and managing up. Of course we all grow at a different pace. Speaking for myself and a number of very sharp, good developers I've met in my career, getting SCEA too early would send a very confusing signal to the prospective employer.
