Hi All,

I just passed SCEA part 1 with the above score. It took me few months. But I prepared seriously only the last two weeks(atleast 1 to 2 hrs daily).

Although I have done many Java projects none of them were involving EJB's.

Materials used:

- Mark Cade's SCEA book (must have)
- Paul Allen's SCEA book
- HF EJB ( if EJB is new to you)
- HF Design Patterns
- IBM's SCEA tutorial
- Pete Morgan's notes (good summary of all topics)

With all the above materials, I was actually going nowhere until I read a gem of a post from Peter Cook (https://coderanch.com/t/155477/java-Architect-SCEA/certification/Part).
This post helped me to focus.

I used the following mocks.

- CD from Paul Allen's SCEA book
- http://www.harishramchandani.com SCEA mock
- Mark Cade's practice questions

If you have good IT experience and an aptitude for reasoning, I would say that it is an easy exam.

All the best to SCEA part 1 aspirants.

Thank you
Swami

Thank you all.

Manish, I used hard copy, borrowed from local library.

As far as mocks, I find most of the mocks that are available online have almost the same questions. They contain questions from Allen's book, Cade's book and Whizlabs. You might want to try the mocks mentioned in Peter cook's post.
