Work Experience

How many years of experience I should have in order to take this exam? I am asking because it's not only about learning from textbooks and tutorials. It's also about experience at the workplace.

I don't think there's a hard and fast rule about how much experience you ought to have before sitting for the exam. IIRC, I think Sun doesn't have any specific recommendation for how long you should have been working with OOAD and Java EE 5.... but I think that definitely, you should have some practical experience designing software before you sit for the test.
