I�ve just checked!! I�m very happy !!!
My report:

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition Technology Part II (310-061)
Date Taken: XXX
Registration Number: XXX
Site: bra
Grade: P
Score: 89
Comment: This report shows the total points that could have been awarded in each section and the actual amount of points you were awarded. This information is provided in order to give you feedback on your relative strengths on a section basis. The maximum number of points you could have received is 100, minimum to pass is 70.
Class Diagram (44 maximum) .......................... 37
Component Diagram (44 maximum) ...................... 40 Sequence/Colloboration Diagrams (12 maximum) ........ 12

Some tips:
1 - I�ve lost 7 points on class diagram. My class diagram shows around 15 classes, none technologic... Maybe I lost points for this, but my diagram was very consistent.
2 - I�ve broken my component diagram in 2: client+web and business+eis. I�ve not shown VO�s, maybe this are the missing points.
3 - It was a surprise for me to got 12 on sequence diagrams. I have on diagram for 3 use cases and 2 for one, putting many notes on them.
4 - My assumptions were on every place of my assigment. In special, I had a session to talk about design patterns, how integrate to the systems, security, how support the 2 clients...

That�s it!

Thank you very much people. This forum helped me a lot! Now I must study for the IBM�s tests!

Hi!
Congratulations!

One quick question, did you make any changes to the given Business Domain Model. Like removing an entity, changing the associations, or anything?

Thanks.

Only little changes, but IMHO, after spending some time thinking about the BDM, I've realized that it's not necessary doing radical changes.
I think that Sun will not accept heavy changes on the specification....

Bye.

Congrats, Eduardo

I am trying to go for SCEA in the second half of the year - do you think it helped to do the SCBCD before the SCEA ?

Wei-ju Wu: The SCBCD helped me in SCEA...
Nicholas: I'm going for all ICXX for WSAD 5... Latter, when my company upgrades to RAD I'll go for the RAD exams too...
I have the voucher for 285 and 484 and I've already passed OOAD.
This is my plan and dead lines:
484 - June 1
285 - June 10
286 - June 20
287 - June 30

I'm doing the 286 to a full understando of the WSAD (BTW, do you know any study guide or any good book for this test??? Redbooks?)

Man, too much study ahead... :-(

This is it!

If I were you, I will not take all 28x exams because a portion of contents are overlapped. It is better to take 287 and 288.

You won't do because is a waste of money ??? But, see, I've had the voucher for 285.. I will pay for 287 anyway...
BTW, what about is the 288 exam (I'll look on the ibm web site..)..

Now I am really curious: This sounds like a pretty tight schedule ! How difficult and how wide is the coverage of these exams compared to, say SCJP ?

As Nicholas said, there is an overlap between this tests...
That's the reason I've scheduled this way...
IMHO, the IBM's exam are much more difficult than the Sun's exams...
