Hi,

Can someone let me know how tough is it to prepare for BCD 5 certification in 1 month timeframe.
I have an urgent requirement to do the same. Please suggest me how to go about it.
I have experience in EJB2.0. But, I havent used EJB 3 yet.

Is it possible in the first place.

Thanks,
Vinodh

Hi Vinodh,

The minimum material needed to clear the exam with a good score is:

EJB3.0 in Action.

Pro EJB for JPA concepts (they say this is an excellent source for the JPA part).

MZs notes (if you are against reading the specs).

Enthuware Mocks (to test your preparation level).

1 month would be less, even if you decide to prepare full time.


SCJP 1.4 - 95% [ My Story ] - SCWCD 1.4 - 91% [ My Story ]
Performance is a compulsion, not a option, if my existence is to be justified.

I think around 20 days is enough if you are not working & only have time to read. But if your are working then 1 months or more required to prepare. You need to prepare for EJB 3 in Action, Specification, MZ Notes, Mocks etc.

I have cleared 90% SCBCD 5 on march 2nd. And I have prepared for a month. And also I work full-time.

I have used EJB 3 In Action and Mastering EJB3. I highly recommend that you use Mikalai Zaikin study guide(http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScbcdLinks), thanks to Mikalai Zaikin. And also try finding some mock exams.

GoodLuck and Focus!!!

Thanks,
Lenkwe.

Hi,

The question does not provide enough information for a exact answer.
That really depends on your experience, if you work already fro some year in the filed (JEE&Web) and you have a very solid background and an entire free month then you can have a chance. You only must go over the core specs (+persistence) and if you are conformable with what you find there and relaying on your vaster practical affairs you can get a passing score.
Otherwise, is hard to say.
The exam is not so hard(if I compare it with its predecessors) but it requires some study and a lot of practice.

regards
M
