Passed 1Z0-898 today. Took about 2 hours total to complete and check 2 times.

Here is what I did:
* Read Pro JPA 2 book 4 times
* Enthuware 3 times and read the explanations. Started at 50-70% range and ended in the 90% range on the 4 tests. The real test has very similar type of questions though not identical.
* EPractice once. Did not go back because of many errors in the questions. They need more editing.
* Skimmed some sections of the JPA spec.
* Pushed for migrating current project from EJB2 to EJB 3/JPA. Developed a prototype. This helped with some real world JPA mapping/coding.

Some notes:
* Pro JPA 2 book is not enough.
* The real test has less transaction questions than the Enthuware tests.
* I don't see people mention this. The real test allows you to right click a choice to grey it out as eliminated. This helps a lot. I basically greyed out all the choices I think are wrong for all 64 questions.

Cheers!

Yes, it is in the pipeline. But no release date yet.
