Hi Friends,

I am midway preparing for part 1, although its already late as we have august 1 deadline, i wanted to know if exam consists of equal no. of questions from all 8 topics or we have arbitrary no. of questions from each section?

Since i have limited time left, i may have to concentrate more on some topics and leave 1-2 topics which i never worked on and will take lot of time to grasp now. Although i have basic idea of all EE techs, i don't want to go in too much details of some techs like SOA, JSF, Security, Webservices. Can anybody please help me in prioritising topics and if i can take risk of less attention to one of these techs.

Thanks a lot.

Welcome to CodeRanch!

The questions are not equally distributed. If you understand the technologies on a high level along with their strengths, you should be ok.

SCEA5 is quite tough-never ever leave any part. Try to have conceptual knowledge. It might happen that the topics you are leaving might come in the real exam and they are easy but just because you are not prepared you cannot do anything.
