Passed IBM-483

I passed the exam with 73%!!! The real exam is far harder then the sample test. You must have a really good knowledge of JSP, Servlets, JNDI, RMI and especially EJB (including deployment descriptor structure!).

My list of educational resources is very simple and includes only resources avallable online:
1. Mastering EJB, 2nd edition from ) - great book!
2. J2EE developer's guide (from J2EESDK 1.2)
3. SUN's tutorials for JMS, RMI, JDBC (but now I see that it is not enough: i had only 54% on connectivity services)
Except this I reviewed my old SCWCD exam resources
4. Core servlets and JSP
5. Ken Zrobok notes from (Javaranch SCWCD links)
