How do the mock exam in ejbcertficate and jdiscuss compare with the real exam? Can those who have taken the exam give me some feedback ?

Thanks

can't say anything about jdiscuss, did'n use them. I used the mock tests from ejbcertificate during my prep, and they were surely helpful in my opinion. They are very good in pointing out the parts you need to study again, and the ones you don't.

The mock exam that helped me the best, was the final one from Head First EJB. I did that one the day before the real thing, and it's a really good prep !!

good luck !

Is ejbcertficate harder than the real exam?
When I took SCWCD, people always say the real exam is easier than the HFJ&S final mock exam simply because it gives you number of correct answers. Is it the same in HFEJB ?
ejbcertificate doesn't indicate number of correct answer either.

Thanks

I now will post my results in mock exam and real exam.

ejbcertificate (the last week of my preparation) : 70
HFEJB (one the same day when I took the real exam): 65
real exam : 91

Just give people an idea whether you are ready. And of course, I was not very careful when I did the mock exam (finished all the questions in an hour). Because I became too cautious in the real exam, I only had 30 minutes left when I answered all questions.

Good luck to you.
