Hi Ranchers,

I clear SCEA Level 1 wth 87 %.

There are many people I would like to thank
Mikalai Zaikin for his superb notes ( Its incomplete agreed but thats the first thing one should read )
Ranhers for patiently answering my dumb questions ( specially JJ Wright )


Now coming to how I prepared
I read MZ's notes - really helpful to start
Read through most of the specs ( not fully but 20 - 25 % of each one ) - well there is a short cut to exam read 100% and write the exam but it is really impossible ( atleast for me ) to read all the specs fully
Read through Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide, Second Edition - Rough Cut ( Not very useful at this stage since it is no where near what it should be ( my personal comment, might be wrong , again it is similar to MZ's notes but since I had to pay 30$ for it , I found it disappointing for the sheer quality of coverage)
JAVA EE Tutorial from Sun - Very Very good - Essential
JWS White paper - Essential
Java SE Security - Sun website - Essential
Took Sun's Mock Exam and Whizlab's Mock Exams. Both were relatively easy compared to real exam, so they are not very useful, but it is a must to give mock test. It makes you think like the person who set the questions. Most of us who do not care to give mock test miss out on filling the gap between our knowledge and examiner's perspective
All through the exam be conscious that this is a Sun Exam. Technologies like JSF / JPA always wins


Ok I will add more later, right now I want to relax and enjoy.

PS : I prepared only for 2 weeks for this exam and I think if one is good in Architecture this is sufficient

4.5 years but I have been lucky with my projects, always had tremendous scope and down to earth architects who have groomed me

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
