People seem to post IBM exma results here (rather than Sun Certification Results) -- so dont shout for putting it in the wrong place .
I passed 483 at the weekend, although I found it hard, that is mostly due to a lack of preparation.
Anyone who works in EJB 1.1 a lot should be able to pass with minimal effort. That said, using EJB 2.0 made me confused about some areas where the spec has changed.
Advice: Read EJB 1.1 spec, get an overview of JMS, give it a bash.
The pass mark is only 60% so you can make a mess and still pass (I got 70%).

Read the EJB 1.1 (not 2.0) spec, look at JMS briefly.
It all depends what your skills set is, you need to know a little about a large number of areas (servlets, JMS, rmi, etc.) but only EJB seems to be in any great depth
I agree. Here's the link:
