Hello, Have got results dated January 1, 2003 SCEA part 2/3: Class Diagram 41/44 Component Diagram 29/44 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams 12/12 (14th exam in US without fails) I would like to thank all of you for posting here your thoughts and suggestions. I have used/read (i think it is the most interesting part for people who want to study and prepare for exam): J2EE blueprint (latest version 1.3); special online addition for blueprint describing design of petstore; Special Edition Using Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) 2.0; UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language (2nd Edition); cade book for SCEA exam; actually i have more than 2 years of extensive j2se/j2ee experience and read a lot book before. But listed books are enough and I think "must read" if you are new to j2ee and want to know it, not only to pass test. (its OK to replace EJB book with any other, for example from oreilly. that one is very good, i have read first edition) I will try to answer questions, if they dont conflict with sun certification agreement. best regards to forum members.
