Knowing the latest development over SCEA after Aug 1st, I was wondering if I can complete my part-1 preparation in 3 months and somehow manage to submit assignment in 20-25 days after written exam? I donot want to stretch it till end of July as my baby is due in Aug

I also want to confirm if I clear part-1 and fail in either in Part-2 or Part-3 , while resubmitting the assignment after Aug 1st do I require to take course?

For part 1, it depends on how much you know now. If you have a sufficient background, one month is sufficient. For part 2/3, it depends how much time you can spend in a week. You'll be motivated by a due date so should be fine.

No, you can resubmit without a course. See the other FAQ we've collected.

It took me 27 hours. Sun/Oracle says 40-80 hours. Cade/Sheil says 25-35 hours.

I've spent 2 months for part I and 30 hours for part II. Maybe these numbers will help you. (I'm working with software architecture for the last 14 years).
