I was just curious at how much time anyone who passed put into studying and doing examples before passing the exam. I did a cursory amount before taking the beta myself - not enough, obviously, as I didn't pass - but now that I have the Web Services exam under my belt, I'm considering coming back for this one (that, and my company might actually need the skillset in a few months).
Any advice or experiences as to how much prep is needed?

SCJP/SCSNI/SCBCD/SCWCD/SCDJWS/SCMAD/SCEA/MCTS/MCPD... and so many more letters than you can shake a stick at!
If time and money is allowed, you may consider purchasing the book: Wireless Java 2nd edition. It is an excellent book for J2ME. In addition, you can read the notes prepared by Sathya as a supplementary materials.
I used 3 hours a day, consecutive 2 weeks to prepare, although the score isnt great, I guess you can pass the exam.
Those, who are totally new to the J2ME, might take more than 2 months with 2 hours per day. And the exam simulators play an important role in preparation for the exam as well.... One obstacle with the preparation is the lack of study guide specific to the exam... We have to read the specifications inside out to beat the exam, omitting unneccessary portions of the specifications smartly...
If we got a good study guide like Head First EJB for SCBCD (or) SCWCD Exam Study Kit for SCWCD, it will take less than two months to be ready for the exam...
Do u guys hear anything about upcoming study guides for SCMAD? Thanks...
