Hi All,

I want to thank everyone for sharing information on SCEA exam preparation because of that I was able to pass the part 1 exam with the score of 84% .

It took 2 months for me to prepare for the exam with 2-3 hours regular study.

I followed following study material to prepare for the exam.

1) Notes by Mikalai Zaikin (read twice)
2) Head First Design pattern
3) EJB 3 in Action
4) J2EE tutorial from sun ( read only JSF chapters)

Following URLs for good articles on miscellaneous topics.

Congratulations

The Whizlabs is enough to pass the exam, because I only used that.

I did also couple of the Java Champ mock exams (maybe something like 14/20 correct), but I think they didn't increase my knowledge from Whizlabs so much.

I also viewed shortly Java Beat mock exams and I think there was anything new for me.

Maybe Notes by Mikalai Zaikin should helped me to get the better result. I scored 65%, but it is ok, because I passed.
