I feel that some questions are so confused that I still didnt'understand in the review time. Many questions are quite indirect and you need to fully understand the technology to answer them correctly.
some help link:
design pattern in /

books: study guid by Mark Cade.

pay attention to the new feature and change for EJB3, JAX-WS,
web component and ejb's declare and programmtic security.

I decided to save the money for buy new mock exam and just used the free old mock to get the feel what it looks like.

I started to think about getting the Scea certificate around begining of this year and start to read the books & link recommended from this site. But I didn't have much time for the preparing the test because I was very busy in couple of projects. I might only spent total 3 hours in March and April. Later I bought the exam voucher to push myself to study it, recently I read at least 3 hours a day .
