helo Ranchers,

I am extremely excited to inform that i've jst passed scbcd 5.0 with just 2 weeks of preparation.
long story short: One fine day, i woke up to release my voucher would expire in 2 weeks and had no choice to give it.

I have working knowledge of ejb 3.0 w/o which it is definitely very tough to pass this exam in this short span!

My advise to all those who land in similar situation or are in crunch of time:
1) If you have worked on ejb3, then try giving mock exams first
This will help chanelize towards your weak areas.
2) For areas that you fare badly, go to specs and read concepts.
3) Cover remaining topics

Exam Questions:
-> Around 3-4 questions on ejb role and responsibiltiy
-> lot of questions on transaction
-> couple on security
-> lots on entity manager (container as well as application managed) / entity manager API
-> do learn jpql

I didn't get any drap n drop questions

I would like to thank Mikalai Zaikin for his study guide and to everyone for sharing their information regarding SCBCD , it really helped me

All the Best!
