Hi all!

Today I passed part 1 of the SCEA Exam. An annoying thing was the fact, that the test center had network problems, and I had to wait 2+ hours, before I could start the test. But at the end they managed their problems. So I had a real world example for an inadequate architecture for free.

I had a lot of J2EE experience and used
- Cade/Roberts Study Book about SCEA
- Gamma
- Whizlabs SCEA Exam Questions
- Monson-Haefels EJB-Book
- this forum (thank you all)
for preparation (2 months, but only some hours a week).

I had some problems with the Common Architeture questions, once I considered two answers adequate to a question, but there was only a radio box ...

Greetings from Hamburg,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

My test center had also network problems when I did my SCPJ2. It might be at question 25 when the network connection broke.

The break took 1 hours or so. So it might be that you were more in trouble then me.

Anyway, we passed!!

Thanks.

I found the whizlab simulator helpful, especially to detect my weak topics. There were just a few areas/technologies in my original exam that were not covered by the whizlab questions.

There are some typos/mistakes in the whizlabs material, but that was not a big problem. The questions were harder than in the original exam (as posted by several other ranchers) which is good. I never had 93% (my original score) with the practice exams (normally +/- 80%).

For messaging, a good point to start is the JMS Tutorial at Sun. You find it here.
For most of the questions, the first two chapters (Overview, Basic JMS API Concepts) would do.

I would like to buy/use a good mock exam simulater for SCEA part1.
I heard from many people in this forum that whizlab is good but,
for me, its price is very costly.
Is that possible I can get it for low price(with sharing!)?
Or is there any other similar product available for low price?

There are also good test exams here:
http://www.javaqueries.com/
(are about same questions as whizlabs)

I don't think sharing Whizlab simulater is easy.
(it only installs on 1 PC)

Vaithiya,

Check this site www.moelholm.com. It has 6 mock exams (288 questions), which were free earlier from Whizlabs.

Thanks for the information about free mock exams.

When I browsed the website I get the following error in java console:

Error loading class: com.moelholm.gui.MockApplet
