Hi Ranchers,

Today I cleared part one of SCEA / OCMJEA 5 with 92% . It's not an easy exam, but with hard study and some good motivation behind you, it is very possible!

Preparation:

1) SCEA Study Guide 2nd Ed. by Mark Cade and Humphrey Sheil
2) JEE 5 tutorial
3) High level overview of some specs (EJB, JPA, JMS, WS-Security, etc, etc)
4) Various internet resources (Wiki, etc)

I'd like to thank my wife and family for all the support (couldn't of done it without them), and of course all of you guys for the help.

If requested, I can provide a list of technologies and specs, which I gathered up from Cade's book and other places such as this forum, which you should be familiar with for the exam.

Thanks again - now it's time for part 2. Is there a time limit to download part 2 from Oracle site? (I plan on downloading early next week)

Regards,
Marcelo

Congratulations, excellent score!

Did you use any practice exams? How did they compare to the real thing?

Thanks Will.

I purchased the Oracle ePractice exam, but to be quite honest, I found the types of questions on there some what different to the actual exam questions. A lot of the real exam questions are heavily scenario-based, where the ePractice exam had less "fluff" around them, and more to the point.

You need to be able to filter through the non-informative information (the "fluff") and get to what they are actually asking you.

Nevertheless, the ePractice exams are good to test your knowledge on the various technologies.

I don't know of a time limit for starting part 2. Keep in mind you need to finish in the next few months to avoid the course requirements though.

Thanks everyone.

Jeanne, that's the only thing my mind right now . I'm quite confident though that I can complete part two and three within the next 2 months - but, fingers crossed!
