That is 54/61.
Hi, ranchers!

I was given the "Examination Score Report" by Prometric today, which
states that I had passed the exam having answered correctly for 54 questons out of 61.

Maybe, my preparation details could not be used as a guideline for success
(due to the relatively low pass score as well as for the too long time
it took (5 months)) but, in compliance with the heritage/traditions of
this forum, here are them:

1. I used the Panda's "EJB 3 in action" book as the jamping-off point
into the EJB 3.0 world (I strongly recomend to use (not only read) it:
sample code/application which is shipped with it is of really priceless help;
furhtermore, when I started the preparation I had made decision to develop
a lot of sample applications in order to understand the EJB 3.0 technology
better (maybe, that is it why my learning was so long) - and sometimes
the "Auction Bazaar" application helped me to understand why my code
does not work properly);
2. Read the specs + MZ's notes (continuing development of sample applications
testing newly discover aspects/features of the technology);
3. Enthuware mock tests helped me to identify areas that need improvement.

Software used: Ant, Eclipse, GlassFish, MySQL, Toplink.

I would like to thank all participants of this forum.

P.S.: Surprisenly, I flopped on "EJB 3.0 Overview" section (only 66%) -
so be aware: it seems that the simplest section is of most danger.

Fahrmann,

Congrats on clearing SCBCD.Nice score yaar.
I have one question I am reading EJB 3 in Action

1) Should i learn all the chapters in the book for the exam?
2) How did you practice the examples in the book? I mean those are ant build projects,so when you practiced those examples you didn't use the IDE?
I am practicing those examples in Netbeans but i feel as the projects are built in Ant i am not able to use Netbeans.

Thanks
Sudhakar

Hi, Karnati Sudhakar.

1. I read only chapters: 1-11 and 14.1.
2. I used Eclipse to navigate (only) through sample applications
shipped with the book; compile, pack, deploy, execute, .. - in order to
execute those tasks I used the ant scripts.

so you did all these things in the Command Prompt..You did not use Eclipse to Compile and run all thse tasks right?

Thanks for your reply.
