Part 2: To petstore or not to petstore

Having downloaded part 2 and about to make a start i am wondering if people who have completed the project phase or are progressing nicely would recommend a good look at the petstore app? Does the petstore application integration tend towards a good part 2 solution?
Would an earlier version be a good starting point as it does seem like a very large app.
I understand that knowing the petstore app inside out would be great for my understanding of J2EE but is it really going to help me get a good pass?
Thanks in advance for any advice

Comments made by others on this forum is analyzing petstore helps and even you can design your solution based on petstore design. Same time it is not required to have deep understanding of petstore for passing the exam, you can have your own design completely different from petstore.
I am in early stage of my prepration, my feedback is based on my about 20 hours interaction of PetStore. Petstore is helping me in visualizing some sceneario and to reuse some concept (patterns) in my solution of part2.
