Hi Allan Sumabat and Yumiko Sohusi , First of congrats for getting Econnect Certified. I am also planning to go for the same Test 483. Could u please let me know the courseware stuff and Mock Tests. do you have any idea about whizlabs Mock Test. are they really helpful??? waiting to hear from u. Thanks and regards Abhishek
Today, I also passed this IBM 483 Exam with quite good score, 84%. The exam was tough, my full preparation was about 1 week, I tried EConnect@Whiz Trial version, and it's quite helpful, my suggestion is download its full version and read the tips ( you don't need to pay for it ) .. I have J2EE experiences, and also have SCWCD certification, maybe it helped me in this exam, but the fact I get very low percentage for web questions (only 70%, and my SCWCD was 91%), maybe I don't prepare it well and really under-estimated it. My Suggestion / Tips : 1. Learn a lot EJB stuff, especially its life-cycle, exception, transaction and security handling (especially with its deployment descriptor). 2. Learn also GoF patterns, in fact I found more questions about GoF patterns but how to apply it into J2EE. Also you have to really know the concept of Value Object. 3. Some tough RMI questions, and having good understanding about passing parameter and remote object concept really help. 4. I found really some silly questions, which ask you to choose all answers instead of just 2 or 3 answers. I think these questions are bonus ... 5. Quite a lot questions which provide some right anwers, but you have to pick the BEST answer.. which really..really confusing and my opinion is you need experience to answer this. Time is adequate, but at the end, I had only around 10 minutes to review my answers. Oh by the way, I have question, how can I change my address in order to receive the certificate ? I could not find it in IBM site.. I think for this, Sun is more professional... Alex [ January 10, 2003: Message edited by: Alex John ]
