Hi everyone,

Cleared SCBCD; scoring 88% with 62 answers correct out of the total 70. Head first EJB was THE guide that helped me through this exam. Thank you Kathy and Bert.

Apart from this book, I referred to the EJB 2.0 specification for certain objectives.

I scored 81% in the head first mock exam and 82% in the mock exam from

Now time to dive in to SCWCD.
