When I started my exam I was more tensed and this has made me to make more mistakes and I missed 4 questions in the last and I skipped few lengthy questions hoping that I will get back to them but I didn't get any time at all. There were good number of questions on patterns (both GOF and Core J2EE Patterns) and I couldn't see any question from UML in my exam.

Some questions were on Security and most of them are scenarios based which are quite bit lengthy.

Given a situation what would be the best in case, these kind of questions will definately take some time to answer.

For few Security based questions where all answers seems to be right

Some how I successfully completed Oracle Certified Enterprise Architect Part I. But unfortunately I couldn't get a decent score in the exam. This exam is of very vast syllabus. Before this exam I know J2EE (few topics were less focused) and Java 1.4 but once I started preparing for this exam I got to know many things, most of the concepts atleast, not in detail but atleast each and every corner of the JEE 5 it has made me to go through.

I want to thank this forum, it helped a lot.

I started preparing for this exam starting with GoF Design Patterns
Head First Design Patterns
JEE 5 tutorial
Core J2EE Design Patterns
Mark Cade's second edition
Mastering EJB 3 fourth edition
SCEA study guide of Mikalia Zaikin
Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for JavaEE Study Guide 2ndEd

What I missed are mock exams which are time based that's why I couldn't manage few questions in the last.

Don't be upset by the score, this exam is tough one. I know some folks who are not able to pass it in the first attempt itself.
It's quite tougher than original SCEA. Very vast syllabus, too many books and reference material, quite lengthy exam which requires speed reading skills, requires good mix of experience and knowledge, etc...
That's why when we complete it-they say you are elite 1% of the folks who has completed this one.

Best of luck for part 2 and part 3.

Kumar, congratulations!

Yes, I agree 100% with Ashutosh.

Scoring above 80% is really not an easy task in this exam as the questions are designed so carefully & it really needs excellent knowledge of every single topic to get the decent score.
