Cleared SCBCD....

Folks

Today I cleared SCBCD, with 94%. Thanks ranchers for all your support and thanks a lot to Mr. Bates and Ms. Kathy for their wonderful HFEJB book and many thanks to the folks from ejbCertificate.com & jDiscuss.com & java.boot.by.

Few things I would like to share with the group and excuse me if this is not the right place for the same.

1) Excellant book, no doubt, but if care is taken to fix all the mistakes in the book would make it #1.
2) The Indian edition of this book has substandard quality, pages come out from the book, can partially erase the printed content with a normal eraser and these two definitely are not features. I am seeing this happening in two of the indian edition books I bought. Can somebody do something to that?
3) On a light note, will Mr. Bates consider changing the models? I am little tired of seeing the same models.

I prepared a Last Minues tips doc, from various sources, which I would be happy to share with you all. Let me know if any of you are in need of it.

Thanks again
Vijay

I have answered only 4 question wrong.

2 from EJB Overview(I think the language was weird and tricky), 1 from EJB-QL(this was tough), 1 from entity CMP interface and was tough as well. The areas that I felt tougher are EJB Roles/EJB Environment/EJB QL. The rest of the questions were straight forward and I felt the real exam way easier than any of the mock exams I have taken(including the one from HFEJB).

Thanks
Vijay.

>>Only Bert can answer why all erratas arent confirmed by authors.There are many erratas listed and there are some big ones such as javax.ejb.TransactionRolledBackException instead of javax.transaction.TransactionRolledBackException

2) The Indian edition of this book has substandard quality, pages come out from the book, can partially erase the printed content with a normal eraser and these two definitely are not features.

>>I didnt experianced anything like that and neither my friends..Probabely you were stress testing the book

Congrats Vijay!

That's a great score!

As to the book itself, unfortunately we lose almost all control once it leaves the country

It is not clear to us how many errata your publisher has fixed and we can't tell them to use better paper

I will say however, that in the new books we DO add new characters - of course we keep some old friends around too, so it's a combination.
