I have now realised that the current SCBCD exam is still covered by the book I purchased (which I really like by the way), so please ignore my earlier naivety. However, from what I have seen in other posts in this section, a new exam covering EJB 3.0 is being prepared currently and I am still a little concerned that the EJB 2.0 exam may be retired before I can complete my study. Could someone please advise me of the time frame involved - how long do I have? If a new exam is prepared, will the EJB 2.0 exam be withdrawn? Thanks for any advice that can be offered.
