This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I am about to embark on SCEA certification, can you tell me how long it will roughly take to complete each of the parts in terms of preparation and study time? Factor in doing a full-time job and a life outside of work with any estimates ; )
Also, is the essay exam at the end the same idea as the essay exam that I did for the Developer exam, which I recall was around five questions based on the assignment that I did.

I'd also like to add what people would recommend as good study material either in book form or on the web and if there are good mock exams etc?
