All,

I took up the exam today morning and was able to score a nice 95%.

Thanks to ALL ranchers for the support.

Few comments from my experience:
- Head First EJB is a real good starter for exam preparation. Thanks to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for the same.
- EJB Specs is a MUST MUST. Go through the specs once, skim through if you can't read it thoroughly. And keep referring to the specs frequently.
- Take active participation on the javaranch. Lot of people keeps posting lot of questions and you really get to know a lot of things out of it.
- Once thorough, take all possible mock exams, especially the Coffee Crams of the HFEJB. Don't forget to take the HFEJB Final mock exam as well, though you should take this exam once you feel that you're almost ready for the real exam.
- ejbcertificate.com is the site where you can take online mock exams for all different exam objectives. My personal experience has been that the question on this site has been confusing. I took all the exams on this site, but finally I gave up and didn't take it's final exam. This is my personal view.


Thanks,
Ankit

Hey Ankit,

Thats really awesome score...congrats. Last week I finished my scwcd and brought Head first EJB. Approx how much time it may take to prepare for the exam. I have little knowledge on EJBs.

Thanks for the tips.
Infyniti.

Thanks everyone ...

Frederic, special thanks to you too ... You have always been very helpful. Don't have anything fixed for 'what next' as yet, but planning to work more on OOAD & UML.

Also, as I had talked to you earlier, I have got some comments on the notes on your website, looks like just a little review might be needed, so as to make it better for whoever reads them in the future. Will try to send them to you in a day or two...

infyniti and AMAR, if you're quite new to EJBs, then I would recommend you first use the Ed Roman's Mastering EJB, that is a good book to start with the EJBs. Once you're comfortable with basic EJB concepts, then you can start with HFEJB.
