I just passed part 1 with 85% yesterday. Thanks for eveybody of this forum. I got a lot of useful information to prepare for part 1. As other people said, this exam is very easy, especially for the concept, design pattern, i18n and messaging. I didn't touch the G of F book, only read the notes for design pattern and messaging part. The tricky parts of this exam are: common architecture, legacy and protocol. I lost 6 questions for them. For EJB, I read Mastering EJB. I didn't take the mockup tests except the one Sridhar posted just before the exam. Since I enjoy reading more articles in limited time. I felt that information overloading for the part 1: a lot of links, notes, mockup... So I list what I read for the part 1 on my web site: http://www.bm-one.com/Se/scea.html Hope it can save people's time to filter the information.
Good luck to poeple preparing for the exam and have fun reading.
