This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
It's my understanding from the posts by the exam passers that we might get around 6-8 questions from the topics not covered( or atleast not in detail to answer the question correctly) in HFE.
I know going through the specs is the best way to ensure we know everything to answer all the questions correctly, but it'l be useful if somebody could tell what are the spefic areas in which we need to concentrate more.
I used exclusively HFServlets & JSP ( and some mock exams) and got 91% in SCWCD, but i'm not sure if the result of SCBCD would be comparable.
I can say i had almost no idea about servlets & JSP before reading HFSJ, but I was confident to write the exam after reading HFSJ, but I'm not getting the same confidence to write scbcd even after completing HFEJB and scoring well in coffee crams and exercises ( may be i am too worried about getting questions out of hfejb)
I did not try doing final mock yet(I want to do final mock only after i feel confident to write real scbcd, which i don't think i can do until i get an idea of what can be asked on exam which is not covered in hfejb).
I just started reading specs, but it's very huge and i feel it's difficult to remember everything that's not covered in hfejb.
If you have already gone through HF EJB book then you are ready for the exam. If you are concerned about your score then I suggest that you work on a exam simulator like softSCBCD, whizlabs or http://www.ejbcertificate.com/.
