Hi All,

I have no hands on experience on EJB 3.0 or EJB 2.0. I will be giving SCBCD5.0 Beta exam on 2 jan. I know it will be tough but want to give my best shot.

I have gone through 8 chanpter of mastering EJB.Currently going through O'reilly and last 3 days before exam for to revise with Mikalai Zaikin notes.

I like you all to please suggest me preparation methods based on your own experiences. Shall i focus on something more or am i missing something which can be looked on.

Gaurav, I think you are in right direction.
From Mastering EJB read 12 chapters not just 8.
Exceptions are not covered in Mastering EJB so read them from Mikalais notes or from EJB spec.
After reading all these, still if you find time try revising ejb specifications.

I followed this path too.

I suggest you to forget the books now and read only the Mika notes. Read as many times as you can, and study those topic that are confusing you.

Good luck in the beta test!

I spent a good part of my preparation time on getting a hands-on experience; Mikalai's guide can be used as a starting point for this.

Good luck!
