Hi all rancher...
Today i passed scbcd 5 with 86%.
the exam was not that scary as i thought.

i would like to thank Mikalai Zaikin for his work.
His notes made it possible.
Prior to exam i have little programming experience in this technology.

I read HF EJB(2.0)...a big mistake
Then i read Mastering EJB 3.0 and
EJB 3.0 in action
then i studied mikalai zaikin notes.(covers everything we need to know)

i prepared all this in 1 month and practices no mock papers.

@Mihai Radulescu
Since i have an aggrement not to disclose about the questions i see there.
I would only suggest you to go with the objectives and the spec.
Mikalai zaikin's notes(which is based on the spec)
covers all topics related to persistence.xml from the spec.

Wow, good job Keshay. That would seem like a lot of information to digest in a month!
What did you think of the Mastering EJB 3 book? In hindsight would you need both MEJB3 and EJB3IA to obtain the information required for the exam?

@karl
Mejb3 or ejb3IA boh are good books.
But i am new to this technology and
Was not feeling confident after
Reading Mejb3.
it was mostly the spec that helped for the
Exam.
Ejb3ia + spec is enough for the exam.

Congrats Keshav!

Do you believe all of Specifications are necessary?

Can you please list us what are the chapters that are not required for the exam syllabus?

I have asked the same question here too, but not received an answer.

Thanks in advance,
