Phew! this was way too tough than I thought ! I mean, yeah you can never assume that SCEA would be easy, but after going through several mock exams and Sun's own e-Practice exams, I became (over ?) confident. I am okay for just being able to pass, but this tells me that there are several loopholes in my knowledge.
Kinda feeling that I insulted Kathy and Bert & others (Head First Design Patterns) and Mark Cade (SCEA study guide) with such a low score.
The questions were of really high quality and very precise, I must say.
Most of them were scenario based.
If one can answer most/all of them with real grasp of concepts behind them, then she/he IS an architect, no doubt.
May be I should have read GoF patterns also (scored very low in patterns)..but then there weren't too many questions on patterns.
Well, better passing with low score than not passing at all.
You mentioned there were not many questions from patterns. Then from which part you got most questions like on tier or security, web ? Thanks in advance.
Thanks. I found a lot of scenario based questions on applicability of technologies;like which technology stack would you use for such and such requirement (I scored well :-)).
There were a few on JCA, JMS, Web services and a lot of questions on security ( ) also.
