I'm going to a pub today
(Edited for books and tips)
- Did you use Core J2EE Patterns
No - in part one there are only design patterns from GOF book.
Please check 'Sun Cerfitied Enterprise Architect for J2EE, M.Cade and S.Roberts' - there is nice chapter with explanation of all required patterns.
- I think that this book is useful for SCEA (Part 2). Am i correct?
That I don't know. I don't have assigement yet - I will update thread
afterwards. Nevertheless, this book provides not only uml, but descriptions and example implementations and I generally like authors style.
- Any tips for exam preparation for SCEA (Part 1)?
There is a lot of questions about CORBA itself - I was working with CORBA before, but still several questions suprised me.
I guess it all depends of questions you get - I had a lot of what-will-you-do-in-this-case? questions.
Sometimes, there is quite strange logic after an answer. Please study this document few times: http://www.geocities.com/subra_73/SCEA_Practice_Questions.htm
and hopefuly you get it.
And the last one:
- Hopefully one day I'll be qualified to take the EA certification exam as well.
Do it as soon as you can.
I believe it can be a booster for your career, but you will also learn much by preparation.
I did learn a lot and also the stuff I knew before had been persisted better
