SCBCD beat rocks dude!!!
Exam covers almost every nook and corner of the spec. Working knowledge and good understanding of spec is must.
Some of the hard part of the exam:
1. Drag and Drop are time consuming. Beware!!! Try to understand the questions rather then getting distracted by the JAZZY yellow and green color boxes.
2. Understand entity beans PRETTY well, what goes in <cmp-field>, <cmr-fields>, when do you define <cmr-field-type>.
3. Expect questions based to the example beans mentioned in the spec - Order, LineItem, Product etc.
4. EJB QL is comparatively pretty straight forward.
5. Expect questions from Security management, EJB environment, ejb-jar file, Runtime environment chapters. Just go through these chapters once.
6. Understand EJB lifecycle for all types.
7. For Drag and drop just refer to point 8 in MARK COMMENTS. Thanks Mark, your comments were really helpful.
Take print-out of all the classes in javax.ejb.* package and paste it on that dull wall in your room and stare at them when you don't have anything else to do
