Did that get your attention?
The mock exam questions for Head First EJB are nearing completion. In addition to our incredible crew of tech reviewers, we are looking for additional volunteers. We need SCBCD candidates to review our mock exams. Give us feedback, look for errors, and mostly shower us with accolades .
The pros:
Reviewing these mocks should be an excellent study aid for candidates!
All reviewers will be individually acknowledged in HF EJB. (your 15 minutes of fame)
You'll have a hand in creating a (we hope), great book, and for whatever it's worth, our undying thanks.
The cons:
It'll take some effort!

If you're interested in helping out, please send me an email at:
Bert and Kathy

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

It's a reference to the American artist Andy Warhol�s statement of:
"�in the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes�.

"�in the future everybody will be famous for 15 minutes�.

Can you please explain why 15 minutes and not 14 or 20 min? :roll:

I believe this number has something to do with phsychology and old watches.
we always feel comfortable with quaters and halfs.

I guess the acknowledgments for 1000 people alone may fill a chapter in the book :roll:
