Thanks to HFEJB authors, Valetin Crettaz for the comprehensive sheets, Java Ranch members, whizlabs and ejbcertificate.com webhoster. Initially I had tough time to read HFEJB, but when I come to 2nd and 3rd chapters, it is very interesting.

I have 0% work experience on EJB and took three weeks to prepare for the exam. I was lazy to write and test a program.
The way I prepared for the exam is
1) completed HFEJB book once
2) go through Valentin Crettaz's sheet
3) completed wihizlabs tests (4 tests)
4) refered specs whenever I have doubt
5) answered ejbcertificate.com
6) answered all the questions at each chapter end in HJEJB
7) skimmed through HJEJB book

Once again thanks to all whoever helped for my preparation.



Congratulations

I'm wondering how you managed to achieve this amazing score without writing even sample EJB code ?!!!

A bit strange, isn't it?

Anyway, what an amazing score

The test had been postposted quite a few times already. I told myself "you had to take it this time".

Spent a few months reading HF S&J first time - one day read 30 minutes, then stopped a few days and then another day read another 30 minutes.

Two days before the exam, opened HF S&J again and started reading second time. I read so slow and could not finish it until 12 hours before the test.

On the morning of test day, I took the final mock up exam. It was definitely a bad idea to take THAT final mock up so late.

I got 69% in the mock up. "Yes, I can make it today!"

Drank a cup of coffee and went to take the test.

Started test...
... I know this one.
... Not sure this one. Mark it...
... Now I finish it.

The final score is...

72% Yes!

- What a start of year 2005!
- Thanks to Bert, Kathy, Bryan and ranchers.



Great Achievement

Congrats

What a great score

Maybe you can tell us how was the exam, your preparation tips, etc?

I'm very interested in this exam after passing the programmer one.

Best regards.

Thanks, my dear.

I'm thinking of the SCWCD as well as preparing for SCJP for the Java 5...What I read about it looks so interesting.

I did, but it's not what you think for sure
It's just a simple drawing to picture the whole array made in 20 seconds or so

I'm trying to post an ASCII version here, but java ranch simple ignores all the spaces in the drawing
You must treat arrays in java as one dimensional array that could have arrays as elements.

So, your 4 dimension array is simply :

- A one dimensional array with 2 elements. your first dimension

- In every element you hold an array of 3 elements your second dimension

- In every element of the last array (the one with 3 elements), you hold an array of 1 dimension your third dimension

- Finally, the arrays with length of one holds each an array with length of 2 your fourth and final dimension

Anyway, I've just sent you the greatest gif image you will ever see
I'll try to make an ASCII version of it if I could.

Fantastic score!
Just started preparation!
Can you tell me how many mock tests u have given b4 the final test?
Do reply

Thanks, Ketan

Mainly, I used the mock tests to force myself to concentrate in the very little details. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to reviewing the answers and such..

I think I'm very comfortable with Java - 4 years working experience, and 6+ years in general - yet the exam was tricky and needed my full focus.

The Book of Kathy and Bert is great..I think you will need nothing with it to prepare yourself..

And I solved every exam that I could found. The nice thing is when you make a wrong question and then to read the explanation, carefully, this helped a lot.

And of course, spending some time on the ranch helped as well.

Best of luck in your journey.

Bert,

Your amazing book holds a big share of this score

I'm really thankful to you and Kathy for such a great book, and I recommend it to anyone interested in a high score.

Thanks, Bert.

Hello guys,

Amazingly, I've arrived from the testing center with a paper saying that I've passed SCJP 1.4 with 98%

I can't express how much I'm grateful to my beloved ranch.
I really think that a big part of this score goes directly to all of you.

Thanks a million, and I think I'll spend more time on the ranch, trying to give the favor back to all new comers

I believe I should thank these people in a special way :

1- Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, for a wonderful book that keeps the whole thing funny, yet completely under control.

2- The free exams of Marcus Green and Dan Chisholm, you guys rock.

3- Corey's SCJP Tipline, it was really useful to read his tips, Thanks, Corey McGlone.

Thanks and God bless you.

Barry, you are correct, I didn't see it from this prespective.

I just wanted to show that the result of the ++ operator is not used in the comparison itself.

Originally posted by Barry Gaunt:
No you are not correct. Check out your BASIC Java book on how an expression like "t++ > m" is evaluated. Or write a simple piece of code to print the values of "t++ > m" and t.

Barry,

Why it's not correct?
I think what JayaSiji is probably correct, as the postfix ++ operator in this case is evaluated after the comparsion, and the original value for t is used instead.

So, for an example :


This piece of code will evaluate to true, as the value 0 of xxx is used in the comparison, and when the print statement executes, it will print :
Equals 1 : 0

Any thoughts?
