Hello Friends,

Finally I have cleared SCEA part1 with 93% on Sunday.(26th Nov 2006).
I have 5 yrs of J2EE exp.. as Systems analyst + developer.
Also have 2+ yrs of EJB 2.0 exp.(cleared SCBCD[EJB 2.0] 2 yrs back)

Used Epractize Lab + Whizlab mock exam.
Books used:: HF EJB2.0
HF Design patterns

And many Notes. ( Most of the Notes are almost same ...so just go throguh with 2-3 sets)


Took last 1 week as complete off from work and prepared for exam.

Almost 40-45 days before I have started to prepare for the exam.

Started with mock exam with Epractize - failed in first 3 exams. Than started to read books, Notes.

In last week, I have appeared for all mock exams and passed all. (Including Whiz lab)

30% questions were simple.
40% Average.
30% Very Difficult.

Almost 14-15 questions, I have marked for review means I can say these questions were very diffcult. I have got 15 mins. for Review. I haven't changed a single answer during my review.

I hope this information will help.

One special tip ::

Scenario questions are very difficult.
Try to eliminate the answers instead of finding right answer directly.


Thanks & regards,<br />Raj<br /> <br />SCJP, SCBCD, SCEA Part 1
