Hi

I was able to clear SCBCD yesterday with 98% . I would like to share some of my experiences -

1. Studied Kathy's book 2 times and cross referenced with the spec for clarifications . If you undertstand what is mentioned in the book then the exam should be a comfortable one to take . Thanks Kathy and Bert for such a wonderful book.

2.I did use Enthuwares EJBPlus and EJBCertificate.com mock exams for my mock exam prep.

3. I did take final mock exam once only the night before the exam and I must say it was a much harder one than the final exam and scored 79% in it. That does build your confidence level so please take it only when u are fully ready for the exam.

I was disappointed that I got one question wrong . I got 69/70 but then I passed with a good percentage so am happy

Thanks

Keith

Great result!

How did your scores in the other mocks compare with the real exam?

Hi

I found EJBPlus difficulty level at par with the real exam , They did a good job with the product. EJBCerttificate.com's difficult section exams were a brain teaser although they do have some answers wrong . I found Kathy's mock exams the most difficult of them.

Hope that helps

Keith
