Hi All
I have cleared SCEA Part-1 exam.Had i known this group earlier i would have scored more. I have only refered books and one Yahoo Group but questions were tough. Anyway I would appreciate any help help regarding Part-2 and Part-3.I have many doubts at 1st place as i have enquired Sun as well regarding these:
I would appreciate reply to these Q's:

1) I can take Part-3 once i complete Part-2 ?
2) What is the time limit for submitting Part-2 (CX-310-300A) assignment?
3)How can i download or can purchase Part-2 Exam. How do i submit the same.
4) How much is the Indian Price for Part-2 (CX-310-300A) followed by Part-3 (CX-310-061). Do we have discount voucher for same as in case of Part-1
5) Is there any chance of failing/reappearing Part-2 what is the significance of CX-310-300R (Assignment Resubmission)?
6) Do you really think training given by Sun or authorized center will be fruitful. I have already done few project on similar role. Is that sufficient to clear Part-2 exam.
7)What i understood Part-2 is assignment based-The assignment requires that you architect a solution for a small but plausible business system. as this is different from other exams where you have multiple choice exams, this is entirely a project based so if at all i wana purchase some preparation kit (e.g:Whizlab,ePlanet).Do i really need to purchase those exam preparation kits.

Too many Q's just got confused how to start, i wana finish at earliest as i am fresh from Part-1 so it would help me.

Please bear with my Q's

I am already working as Architect in IBM, India.

You do realize that you could have found the majority of these answers with a search in this forum, right?

Correct.
2) What is the time limit for submitting Part-2 (CX-310-300A) assignment?

There is none.
3)How can i download or can purchase Part-2 Exam. How do i submit the same.

Purchase it through Sun's offices - you need a voucher to be permitted to download the assignment from the proper site. When you have that, you can go to http://www.certmanager.net/~sun_s and access the files. You'll be submitting through that same site.
4) How much is the Indian Price for Part-2 (CX-310-300A) followed by Part-3 (CX-310-061). Do we have discount voucher for same as in case of Part-1

You can look up the price via Sun's website for India (if it's like the US's). I haven't seen any discount vouchers for Part II.
5) Is there any chance of failing/reappearing Part-2 what is the significance of CX-310-300R (Assignment Resubmission)?

There's always a chance of failing Part II. The resubmission voucher is for resubmitting an updated Part II assignment if you do not pass on the first try.
6) Do you really think training given by Sun or authorized center will be fruitful. I have already done few project on similar role. Is that sufficient to clear Part-2 exam.

I found that I was able to pass without training from Sun. You may have more or less trouble based on your experience.
7)What i understood Part-2 is assignment based-The assignment requires that you architect a solution for a small but plausible business system. as this is different from other exams where you have multiple choice exams, this is entirely a project based so if at all i wana purchase some preparation kit (e.g:Whizlab,ePlanet).Do i really need to purchase those exam preparation kits.

Part II is assignment based. I haven't used any of the "preparation kits" on the market, so I can't speak to whether or not they're any good.

Hi Shaumitra

I removed your questions from this post as they are a duplicate of the ones you posted here. Having the same question posted twice is generally considered not-nice, as it fragments discussions, and can cause people to answer an already answered question. The later would certainly be true in this case, since Theodore Casser already answered your questions several hours prior to you posting in the other thread. You may benefit from reading How To Ask Questions On JavaRanch.

Here at JavaRanch we maintain our own FAQs, including the SCEA FAQ.

1) I can take Part-3 once i complete Part-2 ?

See Theodore's answer

2) What is the time limit for submitting Part-2 (CX-310-300A) assignment?

See SCEA FAQ

3)How can i download or can purchase Part-2 Exam. How do i submit the same.

See SCEA FAQ

4) How much is the Indian Price for Part-2 (CX-310-300A) followed by Part-3 (CX-310-061). Do we have discount voucher for same as in case of Part-1

See SCEA FAQ

5) Is there any chance of failing/reappearing Part-2 what is the significance of CX-310-300R (Assignment Resubmission)?

See SCEA FAQ

6) Do you really think training given by Sun or authorized center will be fruitful. I have already done few project on similar role. Is that sufficient to clear Part-2 exam.

Since I have not taken the training, my knowledge is limited. Reports I have heard indicate that Sun training covers pretty much everything required for the real assignment, so all you need do is apply the knowledge.

7)What i understood Part-2 is assignment based-The assignment requires that you architect a solution for a small but plausible business system. as this is different from other exams where you have multiple choice exams, this is entirely a project based so if at all i wana purchase some preparation kit (e.g:Whizlab,ePlanet).Do i really need to purchase those exam preparation kits.

My understanding is that there are some exam preparation kits that only cover part I, and that there are others that cover part II. For those that cover part II, some provide you with multiple sample assignments, then give you feedback when you submit the sample assignment back to them. This feedback is the big value they provide, especially since you don't get feedback from the real Sun assignment.

Regards, Andrew

Thanks a lot Theodor for your answers. It clears most of my doubts. I have only one doubt though as you said if one fails part-2 than he will get another chance(or he can attempt the same as many times possible) of submiting the assignment, the problem of assignment remain same or it will be changed as well when you get new assignment.

One more thing--> The assignment includes B Schema,Design(Component Modeling including class and sequence diagram, prototype or anything else??)Do we have to provide actual impementation as well like Java Source code in compiled state, i mean executable solution to problem given in assignment or we got to design the problem only.
Thanks again your valuable inputs.

Assignment deliverables are class, component and sequence/collaboration diagrams, additionally You have to list all assumptions You made coming up with Your architecture.
You don't have to implement anything.
