Cleared SCBCD5

I have cleared SCBCD5.0 with 80% yesterday.I started prep 3 months back with EJB3 in action
book,really good book for the beginer but not sufficient for the exam but good to understand
the topics easily.Then read MZ notes and thought it will be enough for the exam.

So Purchased Enthuware and gave the first 2 test with 44% and 54%.Then i realized something
is missing and that something is the Spec.Well there is no better guidance than spec(anyway
the spec is for that only pretty obious).Started Reading the topic mentioned in the
syallbus from the spec and cleared 3 and 4 with 59% and 61% .When finished spec and gave
the final 5 ,the percentage is 80%.I wish i had read the spec one more time and easily

One more thing about enthuware i realised that the maximum score in enthuware is my
maximum score in the Sun exam ,be it SCWCD or SCBCD(might not be
a generalized statement).Really worth the money product.

Thank you all

I have a question, did you practice your code?

How many times, you have repeated the mock exam test ?

Thank you all

Can you tell me how you purchase Ethuware test. how much does you cost ?
If you are in India,no need to pay $29 .Instead get it from that by tranferring the money to Deshmukh account.

I have a question, did you practice your code?
As mentioned in the EJB3 in action ,i practice the code on Glassfish,Apache derby.Taken the code directly from
EJB in action author site and pracitced few where i have doubt.

How many times, you have repeated the mock exam test ?

I think one time is enough because if you had done Q right first time then you will do right each time(if its not fluke),
and if you do it wrong ,make sure you understand why its wrong so next time you will do it right.

I ended up paying $29 which is roughly around Rs 1500. I feel i have been cheated here. Since I am in India , Enthuware should have informed me of this facility.

I agree. Here's the link:
