Hello The day before yesterday I have passed SCBCD 5 90%. Thanks all forum members for help, it was very useful. The exam wasn't so hard as I supposed, the first part was quite easy, second more complex but compare to ethuware's tests it wasn't a problem. Next target webservices, i think current jee6 version.

Ok, here it is my preparation story. I began my preparation with general understanding EJB so at this first stage i studied from "Ejb in action". It wasn't regular study. It took some time, something about 1 month when i gained more theoretical general knowledge. After that i began more complex studies with specification and few others materials like "Mastering EJB", "MZ study guide". The second part was very time consuming task and it took another month of preparation. Most of work in second part i spend on searching some exceptional situations and collect knowledge to solve them. This is the time where javaranch forum was most useful, many of the scenarios which i found was already there with explanation at hand. Last 2 weeks of preparation i made use of Ethuware test. The score from ethuware wasn't high at first time but gave me good directions what part of my knowledge need to be improved first. So in short:
1.General knowledge first even if you have some experience with technology like i have (about 1 year) there are many names, descriptions, concepts which are used rarely but need to be known for exam (here i advise "EJB in Action")
2.Use your knowledge to improve your understanding of concepts state more complex questions and try to answer them (specs, MZ study guide, Mastering EJB, forum)
3.Test your knowledge (Ethuware SCBCD 5 tests - there are answers included - very helpful)
And don't give up.

Congratulations!

How would you rate the Enthuware tests compared to the real thing? I seem to be getting lots of questions about the roles of deployers, assemblers, sys admins, etc do these appear on the real exam?

Sorry, khalid i cannot send you Ethuwares test it is not honest to share them, also i think it is illegal too. Ethuware tests aren't expensive compare to others, beside they are worth their price, you have more then just answers checked. I think Ethuware team spent a lot of hours collecting this knowledge and working on their shape which it is now. So just distributing them for free is not honest from my point of view.


Congratulations!

The real exam which i was taking doesn't consists of so many role's questions like Ethuware's, but roles questions maybe random both in difficulty and number. I wasn't studying roles part very hard, roles wasn't interesting subject in my opinion, but some knowledge int this area is required to don't loose points unnecessarily.
