I cleared SCEA part 1 on 9th. I managed to score 70%.I used the following materials.
1. Head first design patterns - must read
3. core security patterns
4. EJB 3 in action by manning.
5. Webservice - RMH book
There were 2 questions on advantages and disadvantages of JSF and also around 5 questions from JAX-WS.
Since i recently completed SCBCD 5.0, questions on EJB were a bit easier.
Completing SCEA Part 1 is a big gift for my birthday which is today :-)
