Hi All,

Last week I got my scores. I passed parts II and III with a 78%.
My part-I score was 87% so I guess Sun reversed the numbers this time
All the same, I am quite thrilled about passing the SCEA exam at atlast.
Though not a great score, (I was not aiming for a great score too as I wanted to finish up the assignment fast due to time constraints) I did
learn a lot of stuff while doing this assignment.

As usual javaranch helped a lot! So my thanks to this one great forum!

Here's my scores breakup...

Hi Alim Atar
One thing is sure that there are atleast 30% questions on EJB in part1 Exam.
I don't know much about part2.But EJB is very important section of SCEA Exam in whole.Now it depends upon you whether you want to go for SCBCD exam first or SCEA exam directly.

Congrats Neeraj....

Its not mandatory to do any cert (SCJP,SCBCD,SCWCD) for SCEA>
If you want to go for can straight away prepare for that....
But as per Sun the cert path is
Foundation ---> SCJP
Speciality ---> SCWCD,SCBCD,WebService exam
Expert -------> SCEA

Best Regards,<br />Balaji Natarajan<br /> <br />SCJP 1.5 100%<br />SCWCD 1.5 92%<br />SCBCD (In Progress)
