Lost one question in EJB container, which should be one of my strongest experience. One suggestion, don't over-prepare it.

Great Score . I started preparing. Still don't feel confidant to appear for the test. What are all the mock tests did you take ? Totally how many of the mock tests did you take ?

Congratulations Dennis
Geet - you may be interested to look at the JavaRanch SCEA Links page: we have quite a few mock exams listed there. (If you find more, feel free to update that page).
Regards, Andrew

Congratulations! I also took the test today and got 91%. I got four questions wrong. May be you can help me figure out what pattern is a JDBC result-set anyway.
Congratulations again.
Regards.
Bharat

i got my mock exam from
http://www.arc2patterns.com/
it has some problems really close to the real exam. however, the answers just 'plain suck'. you'd better use your judgement and common sense.

Hi Dennis,

I have added this to our links page, and also added a link to John Prieur's quick evaluation (http://www.coderanch.com/t/151486/java-Architect-SCEA/certification/Sun-Certified-Enterprise-Architect). Ideally I would like to have such a page for each of the mock tests so that forum members can add their comments on what they liked / disliked about various mock tests. Would you mind adding your comments to this topic?
Thanks and regards, Andrew

I bought the step 1 mock exam for $50. It does help.
pro's:
Most mock exams cover too detailed/deeper topics compared to the authentic one. arc2pattern does not have this problem. it closely represents the real exam style.
You can expect support/response within one week.
con's:
quite a lot answers are wrong. i'd rather follow my own judgement and common sense instead of blindly follow their answers.

The answer is Record Set according to Martin Fowler's "Patterns of enterprise application architecture" on Page 508 line 3 and 4 counted from
the bottom.

Record Set ...I plead ignorance, but that doesn't sound like a GOF Pattern. I thought only GOF patterns are covered in the exam
