Seems not so many guys take part I now (they are all on part II and III), wow, I passed. My project was heavily taking my spare time that I almost have no time for this test.
many thanks to this forum, and there were many great ideas posted here.
One advice that I can give is to spend time with petstore blueprint and read small articles that you could find in this group, I actually did not read any EJB book throughoutly, but I do have “Enterprise JavaBeans” and “Mastering EJB” or some thing like that, I used them as reference books when ever I had questions.
Jone’s notes is great summary for most topics. Over all it was a great learning experience just by read all these articles I could find in this forum and
this mock test was very good:
looking for “Sridhar Rama's Test ”
any idea on how to increase maintainability of system.
by code factoring? Code reusing ? Code sharing ? data reusing ? data sharing ?
anyway, go for spiderman now.

Thanks guys
The common architecture part is really a tough part for me, I haven�t seen many guys passed with high score on that.

I have the same feeling with you. The architecture is difficult to me, plus legacy and protocol part. Do you some useful articles for these part?

There were many links in this forum, I don�t mind to give it again:
and I copy these from previous post:
Common Architecure
Public Key Criptography
Security (Applet)
Blue Prints Question and Answer
HTTP Tunneling
Load Balancing
Mock Exams and Sample Questions (choose data_js/archExamChris.js) (Pre-Assessment/Sample Test for Test 486, Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with UML Test and Pre-Assessment/Sample Test for Test 483, Enterprise Connectivity (with J2EE) Test )
Protocol was not so complicated in the test, for legacy connectivity, should have a general idea about screen scraper, off board server� etc.

As English is my second language, I don�t really have enough time to count for that number during the test, and the test ended up before I could check my last two questions, soooorry, but I guess around that number.
I was preparing to fail at the first attempting for this test (I save the funding for try twice), so I was not very hurry in the test, and I knew that there were at least two questions I have checked was wrong, one of them is belongs to common architecture, which is at the end of the test.
Good luck,
The link that I given in my post before:
the commands that I put: �this mock test was very good .. looking for �Sridhar Rama's Test � was referred to the test questions regarding EJB, but I have to declare here:
first, you don�t have to go that deep into EJB method,
second, some answer was obviously wrong, do not be misleaded by the answer
good luck man.

I agree. Here's the link:
