Is it possible to pass SCMAD if I am new and have no experience to JSME? I cleared SCJP, SCBCD and SCWCD, but never touched JSME and have no experience. If I work hard from scratch, Is it possible to pass SCMAD? Is It too difficult for me to get it? Any Idea?
We try really hard to make them all equally challenging. If you go to Sun's site, you'll notice that the passing percentages vary from exam to exam... So, presumably, a test with a passing rate of 51% has trickier questions than an exam with a passing rate of 65% - but the passing rate is meant to even out the 'tricky-ness' factor. That said, I guess I feel like the mobile might be slightly easier than servlets or web services, and about the same as the business component.
Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
(If you're not on the edge, you're taking up too much room.)
If you have a strong knowledge of Java programming (which I believe you have, since you have already cleared other exams), I don't think it's too difficult to pass SCMAD as long as you put enough effort into your preparation.
Since the foundation is still Java (unlike SCDJWS, which is more oriented towards XML and other technologies than just Java), it's an easy leap to understand the APIs in J2ME. Also, the API set is relatively small.
It definitely pays to write some small programs in a simuulator using the WTK to get some idea about the lifecycle of a J2ME application. That goes a long way in the preparation.
