Hi All, First of all I should thank you very much for javaRanch and PEOPLE since it helped a lot to get an idea on the scbcd exam. I have written it on last saturday and passed with 77%. I should say that must be good score for me . the reason being is i have just worked on MDB 2.x thats it. I was completely new to EJB3.0 and have jut tried sample examples in what weblogic server installation gives to get hands on experience. I have read the following books for 2 months on an average 1-2hrs a day, ofcourse on weekeneds may be 5-6hrs : -Mikalai Zaikin -EJB3.0 by Orielly -Sun Docs -Samples from Weblogic server. I can say Mikalai Zaikin is good book from exam point of view but you should read EJB3.0 book in detail before reading this book. I am not sure whether it is right post questions here, but i can say some of the key areas where you should concentrate on, -EJB roles like Bean Provider, Application Assembler, Deployer, etc. - I have got 4-6 questions on it. It was very difficult for me to differentiate their roles as I didn't care it while preparing it. -You can expect 4-5 questions entity methods, ofcourse not direct questions , for example,Emplooyee e is a detached entiyt and EntityManager em=... em.merge(e); em.remove(e); em.merge(e); -4-5 questions on persistence API, EntityManageFactory, jta and resource local types. - Questions on remote and local interfqaces like call by value and call by reference. -questions on interceptors and entity listers -exceptions, prepare well this topic.. i really confused with excpetion related topic, like application exception, checked, unchecked, when to roll back.. -transaction attributes and their deployment descritptor notation
