This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I've passed SCBCD 5.0 today with 81%. I am totally new to EJB and used the following books/mock ups Books ----- O'Reilly EJB3 (Gives a good understanding on EJB) EJB Specs (A definite must) Mikalai Zaikin`s notes
Mockup ------ Enthuware (A MUST and its cheap compared to Whizlab) Whizlab (Don't buy it as its not worth for the money)
I spent around 2 1/2 months - 2 hours per day in the week days and little more in the week end.
Though I was not confident to take the exam today, decided to try it as I had the retake option :-) And also I didn't expect to pass with very high % but finally managed to get 81%
Using Enthuware, out of the five tests i just passed two tests (~60%). Actually few questions that was present in the Enthuware appeared in the exam too!
Good Luck !!
Thanks ~Ashok K
