yesterday I cleared my SCBCD. Did not get a good score(only 72%) But anyway...I am a beginner and was happy about clearing it . Thanks a bunch to Kathy and Bates for their HEAD FIRST Series . Without the book..I would have had a hard time understanding the concepts. Also thanks to all the ranchers for their great help.
I was not an active member of this SCBCD forum but was a regular watcher.
My Study Strategy:
Studied for 4 weeks (4 hours per day)
In the last week took enthuware mocks(scored average of 68%)
Also referred to the spec(almost..but could not grasp everything..might be due to lack of exp and I never wanted to learn everything from the spec)
Finally wrote HF mock exam and scored 74%.
I felt real exam was much more confusing than the mock exam..(might be I am wrong..but i felt so)
I was also distracted at the test centre.So be sure to take your ear-plugs with you.
Got only 60% in EJB-QL. Felt few questions were not answerable by me.
Scored 100% in security and 2 other topics.
Confused and got only 50% in CMP entity beans.
Anyway..its all over in the end. I am not that happy with the score..but PASS IS PASS......
All the best for the future exam takers.
