Applicability of J2EE 100%
security............. 100%
Protocols............ 100%
EJB container model...75%
Design patterns.......80%
Common Architecure... 50%
In18................. 50%
Messaging............ 50%
Legacy Connectivity.. 40%
I was thinking to get a better score but I was really surprise by the High-Level Conceptual questions !!!
To be honest, I don't think we need to study a lot to be prepare for it. If you have some EJB experience, you will be fine if you read, for example, John's note
You don't need to buy books as well .
So What do we need to know ?
1) Know EJB well , not very detailed.
Understand EJB lifecyle, activation, passivation concept...
I would recommend to read J2EE BluePrint, EJB1.1 spec...don't buy EJB Monson-Haefel is just redundant to EJB1.1 spec...
2)Design Pattern: 4 questions. (Proxy, iterator, Observer) is enough !!
Which design pattern JDBC-Resulset implements : Bridge, iterator, composite, factory method ?

3) UML : 4 questions ...really easy !! Class diagram ( generalisation, realization) Sequence diagram (self-call, message) is don't need the Martin fowler'book....
Read these link
4) In18/Security : untrusted applet and Cerficicates (high level question )
A few questions with Firewalls, protocols. How Firewalls interfere with IIOP ?
A lot of Architecture scenario questions where you have to read 10-15 lines each time....
Most of them had 7 possible options with only 2 correct answers....I don't want to freak you out ...but sometimes, in my opinion, the process by elimination didn't work....
What else ? ....Time frame.
IMHO, ...really short !! I had only 3 minutes left to review the marked question...
Well that' it !! .....let's move to part II NOW !!
