Congrats Leonardo, that's what I call a score
Could you please let us know your preparation material /time as well as your previous experiance. I checked at amazon, and there are bad reviews about the 2 SCEA books Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide by Mark Cade and Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051) by Paul R. Allen

Could you please also tell us why you chose to take the exam (Managers required it/for fun/ to make the CV look even cooler)
Congratulations again

Hi Tony,
For part 1 I read Mark Cade's book, Mastering EJB (you can find its pdf version in www.theserverside.com) and did the mock exams from Whizlabs. I also read a few articles from the Internet. In my opinion, Mark Cade's book alone is no good at all, but for a few topics such as Security, Protocols and Internationalization it is good enough. But for me what was really essential was the mock exams from Whizlabs.
For part II I read Core J2EE Patterns and looked up a few doubts I had on UML syntax in the internet.
I had some previous experience in modelling and UML, but very little in Design Patterns. I must say that I felt very insecure about the exam.
Reading about the experience of people who passed the exam in this forum helped me a lot.
Finally, I decided to take this exam mainly for the sake of my CV.
Yo!

There are two versions of core j2ee patterns, one that is old and available
from Sun site. Another one is from their new book. Are you using
the old one or new one? My concern is that is it possible to pass part II with old one only?

Hi zheng shu.
I used the new book. But I see no reason why you would not be able to pass with the old one.
