I'm glad this is over I haven't got much more to write about Part 1 that hasn't been written before, except that I certainly did get confused by the wording of some of the questions... Nevermind, here's the score report:
Concepts 100%
Common Architectures 50%
Legacy Connectivity 100%
EJB 77%
EJB Container Model 100%
Protocols 66%
Applicability of J2EE 100%
Design Patterns 100%
Messaging 100%
Internationalization 100%
Security 100%
I mainly revised all topics but Common Architectures, EJB, and Protocols... and it shows

Well, in a nutshell, I tried to stick to the exam objectives. This is how I prepared for Part 1:
Concepts
I read UML Distilled two years ago, and UML User Guide last year.
Common Architectures
I only read chapter 1 of the EJB code camp available from Sun's web site (not JavaSoft).
Legacy Connectivity
Based on field experience.
EJB
I read the classic 'Enterprise JavaBeans, Monson-Haefel' last year, and perhaps, I wrongly assumed that experience would be enough...
EJB Container Model
I re-read chapter 2 and 8 of the aformentioned book.
Protocols
I only concentrated on the objectives, but that clearly wasn't enough...
Applicability of J2EE
Based on field experience.
Design Patterns
I studied that one thoroughly, as well as how it maps onto the EJB model, using the classic 'Design Pattern' by the Gang of Four.
Messaging
Based on an understanding of the concepts.
Internationalization
I have worked on internationalized applications in the past, but
I re-read the i18n trail of the Java Tutorial, just in case...
Security
I revised encryption, digital certificates, and applet security FAQ from JavaSoft.
The few days before taking Part 1, I took the online mock exam for IBM 483 as well as Jaworski's, and consistently got 100%. But then again, they don't target the same exam...
Cheers
