I set myself a tight timeframe (2 weeks, while holding down fulltime job) for this exam, so reading and re-reading redundant material was to be minimized
The most valuable resources for this exam for me in order of importance were http://bcd-guide.nm.ru/ch01.html
: I read this all the way through....it takes exerts of the ejb-spec and forms it into a document in an exam relevant way. http://www.ejbcertificate.com/scbcd/control/index
: Heaps of questions, on slick site. http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/techdocs/api/
: Essential to double check sanity on many questions and learning standard interface methods.
Also had the DTD of EJB 2.0 spec sitting beside me during study.
I looked around for other people�s questions and http://www.jdiscuss.com/index.html
is a reasonable website, but I did get frustrated with it, as some questions are wrong or just so badly formed there is no correct answer.
From there on down, most other peoples questions I found around the place where more detrimental than productive. With the link in the forum page of �Muhammad Ashikuzzaman's exam notes� being the worse of them all�.does more harm than good that document.
I did NOT BUY any books and I even did not read the free MasteringEJB2.pdf that may be downloaded.
About the exam itself, I almost wet my pants when I saw the length of the EJB-QL questions�they should have been allocated twice as many marks, for time invested.
I scored 87% (61/70)
