Yesterday I have cleared SCBCD with 94%. Here are my preparation details (Hope this will help to someone):
(1). Started with HFEJB and completed it once. (2). Read JAVA Black Belt study guide and memorized the things that were required (3). Referred Spec for MDB, EJB QL, Responsibilities, EJB Programming Constraints and some more topics mentioned in Java Black Belt. (4). Taken mock exams at www.jdiscuss.com,www.ejbcertificate.com and Questions in HFEJB. (5). Revised HFEJB (6). Referred MZ notes for specific scenarios in Transactions (7). Revised HFEJB (8). Taken HFEJB final mock and got 82% (9). Revised only the things that need to be memorized and taken the exam (10). Cleared it with 94%.
Infact I started it with my EJBKnowledge=null. But now I am pretty confident. Thanks to Kathy and Bert and also to all who have helped me to achieve this. My next plan is for IBM XML. But now its time to celebrate this success along with Diwali. [ October 29, 2005: Message edited by: S.L.Narayanan ]
