Rabi, jeff, Thejaswi and Valentin - Thanks so much for your wishes.

I used HFEJB for preparing for the exam. I also read "Mastering EJB" by Roman,Ed for an in-depth look at EJBs. I took about seven months to prepare (about 2-3 hrs each day) which included reading the spec, reading the books mentioned above, hands on working and utilizing the resources mentioned "SCBCD Links" section to the maximum possible extent.

The best thing about the mock exam in HFEJB (and some other mocks mentioned in SCBCD Links section) is that they do not give the number of correct choices. It is not only important to be able to select the right choices, but to also be able to reason out why you feel the other options are wrong!Preparing this way would help when you actually take up the real exam, cos you will have a better control over the questions as you are provided with the number of correct answers anyway.

I set a score of 80% or above on the HFEJB final mock exam for the real-exam-readiness. However you can decide on the number would be based on what your targets are.

Good luck to all who are preparing to take up SCBCD 1.3.

Hi Sathish

Thanks for your wishes. I got a 90 in the HFEJB mock and I decided that I am ready for the real one. I appeared for the exam the very next day Actually 90 was not the target I set for myself... I would have gone for the real exam for any score over 80.

Good luck with your preparation. I will continue to 'listen' and 'post' on the SCBCD forum and try to make contributions with whatever little I know.
