Shared Exp: Passed SCEA Part I with 85%

I've passed SCEA Part I since the last few days, with:

Concept....................83% (5/6)
Common Architectures.......83% (5/6)
Legacy Connectivity........80% (4/5)
EJB........................77% (7/9)
EJB container Model........100%
Applicability of J2EE......66% (2/3)
Design Patterns............100%
Secutiry...................50% (1/2)
Total......................85% (41/48)

I think some questions & choices are quite ambiguous if u don't get fimiliar with English (for non-english person like me). While i's taking the exam at Prometic, there'd a electric problem then network went down about ten minutes. The computer i sit was hang and rebooted, after a recovery, i can continue the exam and eventually passed. ^^

However, give a big thank to all u guys. Although i haven't posted or replied in many topics, i often use many resources and read many topics presented here. They're really worth reading.

For friends who prepare to take the PART I, i've used the following resources: (All of this presented in old topics)

UML Distilled (Martin Fowler) - U don't need to know all diagrams. I think UML-section is the most easiest of the exam.
SCEA Study Guide (Paul Allen) - Too much contents for Part I, read only the chapters stated in the SCEA's objectives. Note: good references for GOF Design Patterns.
For EJBs, i get many advantages from SCBCD i got before. I passed SCBCD half a year before taking SCEA, that make me forgot some details and miss 2 items of EJB-section. U need to know methods defined in EJB API and their use including EJB-lifecycle maintained by EJB-Container. - Excellent notes. Also thank to Ramu. I found them very useful and cover the real exam. So, no need to find additional books or resources.

Free SCEA Part I mock exam (must try):
----- Additional resources: i found it after i've passed the exam -----
In Java-Architect Yahoo's groups, go to "Files" u will get many stuff.
I recommend "SCEA Practice"
Old TK's mock exam.

Hope u succeed in the exam.
