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 http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum26/HTML/000441.html
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 book...it is just redundant to EJB1.1 spec...
2)Design Pattern: 4 questions. (Proxy, iterator, Observer) http://www.patterndepot.com/put/8/JavaPatterns.htm 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 enough.....you don't need the Martin fowler'book....
Read these link http://www.togethersoft.com/files/services/umlonlinecourse/
4) In18/Security : untrusted applet and Cerficicates (high level question )
Read http://java.sun.com/sfaq/
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 !!
