Hi Folks,

Finally got through with the SCEA - Part 1 exam and got an 98%.

It took me almost two months to prepare. I am relieved now . The exam was not difficult for me considering my experience and the area I have worked in my projects was helped to get this much score. Nonetheless, hard work paid off. Thanks to all the insight shared by all on this forum. It was helpful.

I used the following material:

1) JavaEETutorial
2) Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for JavaEE Study Guide 2nd ed by Mark Cade & Simon Roberts
3) MZ's notes - Wonderful and very helpful for quick reference. Thank you personally for this excellent compilation.
4) Design Patterns, GoF & Core J2EE Patterns, 2nd ed.

5) Exam simulator available at the below site was very useful.

6) Java Beat Mocks
Please go through all the Mock exams at this site. They cover wide range of concepts.

7) Other useful links

Thank you all ranchers for helping me. Without this forum, I seriously wouldn't have passed.

You mentioned about two months prepration time. Could you tell me how many hours roughly you dedicated everyday and how much J2EE experience you have.
With that i need to set deadlines for myself for this certification.
