This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am so happy to share it with you all that I cleared SCBCD certification with 100%.
Before starting for preparation, I had around 8 months of experience in EJB and around 1.5 years of experience in Hibernate. I started by studying EJB3 in action well, along with Mastering EJB3 wherever I find difficulty in understanding concept & of course javaranch forum. After I was comfortable with concepts, I studied Mikalai Zaikin's guide for final preparation, followed by whatever mock exams I found on net "for free". Also want to thank all ranchers for help provided to me through this wonderful forum.
