Today I passed the SCDJWS-exam (310-230) with 95%.

The last 10 weeks I spent a lot of time (about 8 hours a Day and more) on preparing for the exam.

Material I used:
SCDJWS Study Notes by Ivan A Krizsan
Service-orientierte Architekturen mit Web Services by Ingo Melzer (a german book)
Java & XML for Dummies by Barry Burd
XML Schema by Marco Skuschus and Marcus Wiederstein (a germon book)
WSDL tuturial on w3schools
Documentations on Sun's official sites
Followed the online course at javapassion
Read many threads at javaranch and hundreds of other sites in the world wide web

Helpfull are discussion with an colleague of mine, who has already experince about Web services.

So I felt well informed and the exam wasn't as difficult as I expected.

Today I passed SCBCD 5 wirh 100%.

I'm very suprised about this result; I assumed a result of 80% to 90% or so.

Since 1985 I'm developer. In 2007 and 2008 I wrote some business components. Now I had time to study EJB's in depth (more than 3 month, 8 hours a day). My material was Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (O'Reilly), EJB3 in action (Manning), Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 mit Eclipse und JBoss (mitp, german book), Mikala Zaikin's study guide and uncounted web ressources like Torsten Horn's Techdocs (written in German). Also I tried much programmcode using NetBeans and Glassfish2.

My preparation:

Read 1. Chapter of David's Book. Done all Excercises. Answered Selftest-Questions. Repeated some parts of chapter 1.
Reading 2. Chapter. Doing all Excercises. Repeat Selftest from Chapter 1, Answered Selftest-Question from Chapter 2. Repeated parts of chapter 1 and 2.
And so on.

After that I read my second book: HF JSP & Servlets. Answered Questions at the end of the book more than one time and often repeatet chapters in the book.

Looked into the JEE-API-Documentation and often searched information on the web.

Discussed some questions with colleagues.

After 2 month (8 hours a workday) I feeled ready to take the test. Thats it.
