Hi friends,

I would like to thank the job that everybody do in this forum.

It is a big reposity of knowledge and helps me a lot.

The test is different from the mocks... but.... the mocks help a lot

to understand the problems used on the test.

The test is difficult,

and my advice is to study hard and pray a lot... .

I study the 2 books for the certification and Ramu Meda material,

every chapter I read I try to find more details on the books and on the

internet (google is a very nice partner... )

My links ...

Hi Gustavo,
Good Score. Congrats.

How is the real exam different from Mock Exams. Are the really Exam
questions very tough compared to Mock exams.

How many questions you had on EJB. How many on Patterns.

Which topics are more complicated.

How is the real exam different from Mock Exams. Are the really Exam
questions very tough compared to Mock exams.

My test had 30% of questions like the mocks, simple and objective questions, this part was easy, some mock questions are more difficult than
this type of questions on the exam.
25% was in the middle, jms, ejb, patterns , architecture ....
but... the rest.... was difficult, subjective questions, where the question had 2/3 lines and each option 2 lines, you have to read a lot and think a lot, this part is totally different from the mock, but the mocks help giving you the key parts to study.

How many questions you had on EJB. How many on Patterns.

--> EJB - 5 or 6 - you have to know the specification, it is very, very mor easier than the SCBCD exam.
--> Patterns.... I think 5 or 6 too.

Which topics are more complicated.

for me ....
legacy and the Big one's .... with a lot of information, crossing concepts
like J2EE, security and legacy.

Good Luck,
