I am going through the Mikalai Zaikin study note's.

It's written so in difficult language, that it is becoming hard for me to understand them.


Is there any one who have read them and appreciate them?

It's written so in difficult language

I think it's mostly a copy/paste from the specification.

I think it's mostly a copy/paste from the specification.


Specification documents are Persistence(256 pages) + core(562 pages) but Mikalai Zaikin's guide is only 334 pages including Appendix.Are there topics that are not required for the exam but given in the specifications.

I guess the SCBCD exam tests you on the specifications. Isnt't it?

The specs make sense when you have some EJB basics in mind. The specs will fill in the gaps!

I read Bill Burke's book on Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (skipped the WebServices and JBoss chapters) and then I took the standard practise exams with the EJB+ Enthuware Software. When finding a weak spot presented in the evaluation of one exam, I studied that objective in MZ's study guide, then I took the next exam and repeated the procedure. I'd say you can easily pass the exam without reading the specs, if you want to.

MZ's chapter on Persistence Contexts and Persistence Units are very well written in my opinion.

well MK's note's covers important part, which is related to SCBCD.

so i am reading it, as compared to reading the whole specification. it's half of it.

I am planning to use the following methodology for study :

1. "Chapters 3 (not necessarily EJB 2.1 client view part), 4, 5, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 of the ejb core specification, chapter 9 from the ejb simplified specification and chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10 of the ejb persistence specification." - (An excerpt from previous post)

2. Just go through O'reilly book for EJB 3.0 to clarify doubts, if any

3. Enthuware mocks

Hope this will be enough. Any advice?

I would read the book before getting into the specs, unless you're already comfortable with EJB.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
