Cleared part 1 with 68% the other day.
Thanks for all the resources and posts on Ranch.

Scored very less in Common Architectures, Web tier, Security (50, 50 and 25%).

I didn't feel that the exam was tough, but i must have paid attention to some of the technologies.
I did skip the topics, i personally feel are boring, like JSF and JCA/applet security stuff.
I thought the work experience i got in web app security will suffice, but apparently lot of questions were from applet security, JCA.

I have spent a lot of time studying patterns, which worked well for me.(88%)
I spent like 2 weeks (4-5 hours a day) preparing for the exam and almost a week looking for resources, revising and taking mocks (java champ, wizlabs trial and my collective material ).
Mostly read Mark Cade's book, GoF patterns book, Core J2EE patterns - Deepak Alur, Mikalai Zaikin's study guide
references, Java EE tutorial

patterns test link and my collective material link in this post were very helpful.

Downloaded Part 2. Will start working on that after a few days.
