This week's book giveaways are in the Jython/Python and Object-Oriented programming forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning for Business: Using Amazon SageMaker and Jupyter and Object Design Style Guide and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Cleared part 1 with 68% the other day.
Thanks for all the resources and posts on Ranch.
Scored very less in Common Architectures, Web tier, Security (50, 50 and 25%).
I didn't feel that the exam was tough, but i must have paid attention to some of the technologies.
I did skip the topics, i personally feel are boring, like JSF and JCA/applet security stuff.
I thought the work experience i got in web app security will suffice, but apparently lot of questions were from applet security, JCA.
I have spent a lot of time studying patterns, which worked well for me.(88%)
I spent like 2 weeks (4-5 hours a day) preparing for the exam and almost a week looking for resources, revising and taking mocks (java champ, wizlabs trial and my collective material ).
Mostly read Mark Cade's book, GoF patterns book, Core J2EE patterns - Deepak Alur, Mikalai Zaikin's study guide references, Java EE tutorial
patterns test link and my collective material link in this post were very helpful.
Downloaded Part 2. Will start working on that after a few days.
