This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Today I passed 1Z0-895 exam. My preparation was divided into three parts:
- reading EJB and Interceptors specs
- writing some application code (one EAR with ejb and war modules)
- using preparation tests from Enthuware
After finishing answering questions I had ~35 minutes left for reviewing my answers so I was quite comfortable with time. I must say that Enthuware s/w is a must for this exam.
Great work guys. I also appreciate the feedback from Enthuware's forum administrator Paul, who quickly fixed inaccuracies in questions that I complained about;-)
The dark side of the exam was obvious inaccuracies/errors in questions - I counted three. Anyone else had the same?
It took me about 2 months to prepare. Earlier in 2010 I read book Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1, 6th Edition from O'Reilly. I found it quite useful.
I was also able to clear the same certification exam yesterday, 22 August 2013, with the same score posted here.
I must say Enthuware is really a BIG part of this success! Not only are the questions closely resembling the real exam, what I really appreciate are the discussion forums for each of the questions in the test suite. The Enthuware team are really very professional and prompt in responding and even correcting and/or implementing appropriate changes to their question bank answers and explanations. Great thanks to Paul and team!
