I took the SCBCD exam today 2005-05-27. I�m really happy with my score, 94%. I started my preparation at last december. I took almost five months to be prepared, studying every day specially on the weekends. I studied using: - Head First EJB, it�s a great book, really it�s awsome. I enjoy how the book was written, was very nice to read it. And for me it�s simply the best for this preparation. - EJB 2.0 specification, a litle hard i think to read. I read it completely. - Mikalai Zaikin�s SCBCD Guide it�s interesting and helps me a lot about doing reviews a week before took the exam. - JavaRanch guys, You really helps me a lot. I always searching on this forums and most of my questions was already posted and that helps me so much.
- Finally I did Head First�s Mock Exam. It�s really helps me. Doing that was possible for me to knew which points about exam i need to improve. I got 80% in this mock exam.
By the way, sorry for my english. I�m not so proficient, but i�m working to get better.
Thanks a lot! Best regards. SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD Fernando Faria
