I cleared SCEA 5 with 48 correct answers out of 64 questions. Got just 25% in Common Architectures, 55% in application design concepts and 87% in the rest.
What path did you follow to get SCEA. I mean after SCJP you went through Web application, webservices and then SCEA or through EJBs and how many years of experience in J2ee do you find sufficient for SCEA appearance ?

Thanks AleBald. I cleared SCJP last year in June. I have 7 yrs of experience in Core Java/C++/Perl on Unix mostly in server side and the frameworks on which I have worked are mostly company specific, and my assignments were small enhancements and scope of design was within the framework boundaries.
I am trying to move towards the next level and so I started preparing for SCEA 2-3 months back and focussed on jee 5 like EJB 3, JAX-WS, JSF.
Books used for prep MZ SCBCD5 notes, MZ SCEA 5 notes, Core J2ee patterns, GOF patterns, Cade book, Core JSF patterns, SOA using Web Services, Core Security Patterns, Pro EJB 3,
Thanks to this forum, I was able to go thru only the relevant chapters in the above books.
