77% only.

I read and did the exercises on Oreilly's EJB 3 book by Burke/Haefel.

Hi Angeles,
Congratulations first.

Did you refer any other books apart from oreilly. How long did it actually take for preparing?. I do have the oreilly book but found it bit harder and unorganized.
By the way do you have any notes that can be useful for us. Please share with us about your preparation strategy.

Thanks.

I read only Oreilly's. I do have certification in scbcd (old one) so it helped.

If I have more time to prepare, I would probably have read the specs, and Mikalai Zaikin's notes.

If you would look at the Exam objectives, and study some materials on each topic, you should be okay 70%, but you need to get deeper to get higher - of which I dont know how other than the materials I mentioned (as we dont have Head First book on it ?yet?).

These cert exams do show how much good you are or how much you stink; of which I am the latter. I need to brush up on it.

Since I only read/used the ejb 3 book by Haefel/Burke, it took me around 60 to 80 hours probably to prepare.

I've tried the O'Reilly book but I found it difficult to understand
"Mastering EJB 3.0" has been a good read; for Persistence alone, I find "Pro EJB 3-Java Persistence API" wonderful.
You guys must be amazing to complete the O'Reilly book.

You have read the "Mastering EJB 3.0" book? If so, then why do you need to read the Burke/Haefel book?

"Mastering EJB 3.0" probably is complete on its own. It is similar to the Burke/Haefel book.

Anyway, read slowly if you need to. That is what I do.
