MZs notes v/s Specs

Hi all,

When it comes to BCD3.0, they say reading specs is MUST. I have read many a times on this forum that MZs notes are some what like a 'specs in summary'. Would it suffice to read MZs notes instead of the specs?

Hi,

MZs notes are a very good material but unfortunately they are not official - so do it on your own risk.


Regards,

Yes, very correct! But the other exam passers have used them extensively for their benefit. So I believe they should be in a good shape!

If time is on your side, why not reading them then. They are like the spec, but structured by exam topics.

Yes, definitely! I would prefer reading the MZs notes intead of the specs. Would that be fine?

It think it would. But I haven't read them myself, so I can't guarantee that they are complete. As you said, many ranchers used them, so I think it should be ok.

I must agree with Christophe (and the with Rolling Stones) time is on your (my) side. If you have read & practice as much as you can.
Until now I read : "The EJB in Action" and the MZ notes. Now I read the Enterprise Java Beans 3.0 (from O'Relly) and I must agree with each new lecture I discover new (and deeper) details.

Regards,
M
