Hello Ranchers,
You all helped me to achieve my goal with SCJP 1.4 recently. Now, I am ready to take up my next assignment, SCBCD. I recently ordered for HF-EJB and would be recieving the same by this week.
I would really appreciate if you all could suggest me what other stuffs do I need to do apart from reading this book. How to go about starting my preps. for SCBCD, what other links might be helpful or a small list of action plans to be taken towards SCBCD would be more helpful.
Any input is appreciated !!

reading the specification is also a must for SCBCD just be sure to download and study the ejb2.0 specification not 2.1

Hey Taureen,
I am in the final stages of my preparations for the exam. These are the steps in my preparation.
- Read HF cover to cover doing all chapter mock tests. I didn't do the final exam yet. I am holding off until I have studied completely.
- Submitted questions frequently to this forum
- Read other submissions to this forum
- Read the entire ejb specification - This step requires a lot of time, focus and patience. In retrospect, I don't think reading the spec in its entirety is necessary for prepartaion. Just read the sections in areas that are giving you difficulty.
- Read HF cover to cover a second time.
- I am currently taking mock tests with two exam simulators. EJBPlus and softSCBCD. For each question I get incorrect I review the material covered by that question. I will keep taking the mock tests until I consistently get over 90%.
- I will then take the final mock test from HF.
I started studying 2 months ago and have had a lot of time to spend on it due to the fact that I'm currently unemployed. I recommend taking as much time as you need to be fully prepared. Study to learn the material and you will do well on the exam.
Good luck.

Hi Keith,
I recently gave my SCWCD exam and I have no idea about EJBs. Can you recommend how I should start gaining knowledge for EJB and also for the exam.
I wanted to ask you what is HF?
Thanks
Priya

Priya,
HF means Head First EJB book from Kathy & Bert. I was new to EJB before purchasing HF EJB book. It is good book for learning EJB & for SCBCD exam.

You can use RI (Reference Implementation) from J2EE as suggested in HF EJB. If you use other books they suggest Weblogic or JBoss.

You have to download J2EE & go to bin directory & you will see deploytool.bat. But before you double click on that make sure you have install & configure J2SE. I think it will be good you buy HF EJB for further info how to test EJB using RI come with J2EE.
But make sure you want to study for SCBCD otherwise for pratical learning on EJB try "Mastering Enterprise Javabeans" which use Weblogic server.
Rest you have to learn by reading stuff.
