Hi mates!
I have read some topics in this forum about the IBM exam 483 but so far I still have some doubts.
- What is the minimum percentage required to pass in the exam? Some people say 60%, others say 67%. ???
- What are the specific versions of the technologies covered in the exam, like EJB, Servlets, JSP, JNDI, JMS. IBM only specify the version of JDBC 2.0. I noticed some people in this forum advised to study EJB 1.1, others said EJB 1.2, 1.3.
Guys make a big confusion here. Please, clarify my doubts.

Passing % is 60. I focused on EJB1.2. I observed most of questions are generic to EJB and not tied to any specific version.

Sorry, but there is no version EJB 1.2.
The available versions are: 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1.
Did you study EJB 1.1 or 2.0?

I am giving 484 and to have the same problem, I cannot find any tutorial for JDBC that covers what IBM 484 wants since it seems really vague?
Any help will be appretiated.

Hi Vivek,
For 484, you only need to know clearly that what API can be used for what.
The questions are not too details, it is very simple, if you know the API well.

why not to browse an IBM site for the info?
483 test covers J2EE 1.2, all other technologies are those within this one.
