Cleared SCBCD with 80%

Hi folks...

It was yet another, great moment in my Java career..

As usual HFEjb was a great piece for the exam's preparation...

Solely with the help of this book I was able to grab the technology within 17days...

In terms of question practice i did 40 odd out of 100 questions for an hour or so... This was really helpful....

Further i covered the mock questions in HFEjb in learning mode...

As far as short notes are concerned i didnt make my personal notes this time around... I made use of JavaBelt short notes which was really short and sweet..

For me i was satisfied more than any other Java exam, as the studies for the exam were merely supplementary to my full time work as a Software Engineer..
In fact three quarter of my studies was during traveling to and from office...

For those who are out there as potential exam takers, my testimonial is not the best to learn things from...Ideally it should much more structured...

All the best...

Hi folks,

I dont think i will do crash for the web services exam also in the near future..

We all know there is no HF for it..

Can someone suggest me the most appropriate book based on the current Java version...

For those who are interested in doing EJB 3.0, there is a book on the in PDF format.. But that is something like, that deals with EJB 3.0 specifics and not the entire history..I think Session beans are less covered if i am correct
