I'd like to thank you all for helping me out with all the SCEA-I certification.
I found the part 1 exam relatively easy. (Easiest Sun exam yet.) I prepared for it for 4-5 days. Books used: Mark Cade (Skip through ...took me 4hrs) UML Distilled (Skip through ...took me 5hrs) HF - SCBCD (Had read this one 2 times 1.5 years ago ..Skip through ..about 15 hrs.)
And lots of notes from the forums at javaranch.com ... (15-20 hrs)
Sim: Exforsys (Failed the sim with 6 questions) ..But it did give a good idea ..!!
My advice ...Take the exam ..Go with the cool head ...its not that difficult. !!
