I cleared the exam today with the above score. I would rate the exam as not so difficult if u have all the concepts and fundamentals clear.
I used the HFE book and WhizLabs. The book gave me a very strong base and helped me to get my concepts in line. The S/W helped me fine tune some of things. I did not refer to any other text since I thought I may get more confused with more data.
However, I faced a few problems during the exam while answering the Drag and Drop questions. - One question with the Drag and Drop had a bitmap picture and I could not read anything in that bitmap, so I was down to reading pixels and finding out, anyway I guessed the question - Also remember that in the Drag and Drop questions - U Drag the answer item and place it exactly in the rectangular box where it is to be dropped otherwise it will not drop and u will have to keep trying it again and again. - Also in the Drag and Drop question, during review time, if I wanted to review it, the Exam S/W cleared the previous answers.
** So I would recommend to mark the Drag and Drop questions and then answer them later and answer them correctly the first time and not review it again.
I used this forum often, to get my confusions clarified and I would like to thank everyone who helped me out.
Also best wishes to everyone for the exam.
There was a time about 5-6 weeks back when I thought I would give up this exam as it seemed too complicated and convoluted topic. However, I persisted and fought back and I think I am more confident and more satisfied.
Special thanks to Kathy and Bert for the wonderful book, without which I would have always thought EJBs to be a alien subject. The layout, explanation and organzation of the book deserves a special praise.
