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)
Books: 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. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/java-architect - 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. http://stephane.weber1.free.fr/SCEA/SCEA_Links.html
Free SCEA Part I mock exam (must try): http://www.javaqueries.com http://www.harishramchandani.com ----- 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 Questions~132p.zip" Old TK's mock exam.
Hope u succeed in the exam. [ June 09, 2006: Message edited by: Choopong Songcharoenkij ]
