This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Score: 44/48. Missed one question on EJB, two on concepts, and one on legacy connectivity. Overall, the test is not that complicated if you have worked with J2EE for a couple of years. Here is resources I've used: 1. Cade's book: one or two day reading. Not as useful as . 2. SCEA in a nutshell: really useful notes. 3. UML Distilled by Fowler (long time ago) 4. Design Patterns by Gang of Four (long time ago) 5. Whizlab software: scenario questions are very similar to the real test. Many questions are worded badly, but I hear that they have fixed grammar errors recently. 6. javaranch, scea_prep_, scea_j2ee forums: great help! Part 2 seems like fun Regards, Alex
Hello Alex Pinkin Congratulations. I also plan to prepare for it. But one thing you have said, a couple of years' experience with J2EE. Would you please list the potential problems without it? I may need to change my plan. I am a SCJP since May 4, 2001. I have moderate knowledge with J2EE. 3/4 months working experience with Servlet/JSP. I will attend SCWCD before it. Please suggest me. Thanks. -------------- Hafizur Rahman SCJP(Score 94%)

I think "SCEA in Nutshell" means the "SCEA nutshell" folder under yahoo group - scea_j2ee This folder has a couple of PDF documents on different topics. Please let me know too if this is something else. Thanks Vibha.
You cld also find them at SCEA_PREP under the files section. These are an amazing set of abt 10 PDF docs. Unfortunately I don't know who the author is. Chris Broeker's notes are 'noteworthy' as well. HTH.

"SCEA in Nutshell" notes can be found under files section in yahoo group scea_prep. @Boney: see exam objectives at Sun's site: http://suned.sun.com/US/certification/java/java_archj2ee.html @Hafizur: hands-on J2EE experience is not a must, but it can save you weeks of preparation time. Make sure you read a good book on EJB and you will do fine. Regards, Alex
