Hi all, Iam preparing for IBM484 test.I read SCWD studykit and HeadfirstEJB and the turorial link provided for JMS,JDBC,JAXP,JCA,JAAS etc.Is this sufficient or I have to read more.Iam in confusion what all I have to read for all sections.Can any one who is preparing or whao has taken test already provide your views what materials should we read for each section.If you do this once I think It will be helpful for every one.From one on the previous post I got some info:
For Section 1, I have referred to 2 books: 1. SCWCD Exam Study Kit, Chapter 17 2. Core J2EE patterns You can find the patterns issues from this link as well: http://www.patterndepot.com/put/8/JavaPatterns.htm For Section 5, I totally gave up, cos it required me to spend much time on various technologes, such as JDBC, JAXP, JMS, JCA, etc. Thus I just try my best to work with it using my *existing* experiences, like JDBC and JMS. Of course, you can read the tutorials, as IBM recommended, from SUN's website. For Section 6, I read: 1. SCWCD Exam Study Kit, chapter 5 2. Head First EJB, chapter 12
can someone give the info for other sections also Thanks in advance.

I think that you have covered more stuff than required. I too am preparing for the same I have to give it either by this weekend or by the next weekend. Currently I am working on J2EE Connector Architect Tutorial by IBM. I also have read through filters since I didnt have much information filters since it wasnt included in SCWCD exam.
I did take the SCWCD beta back in Jan. Thanks all for wishing me luck and good luck to all the people writing exams.

hi guys, I have another question for you. are there any mocks other than IBM and whizlabs.I feel whizlab exam is expensive. Is the IBM mock exam the one that people have given answers in this particular link link or do we have another one.

In fact, there are only limited resources for IBM exams. Seems Whizlabs and IBM ICE are the only mock exams in the market for ICED. Nick.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
