Thank you very much
Hello Ranchers,
I have a question regarding new SCEA exam.
Currently I have passed Part I of old version of SCEA (CX-310-051). So I still need to pass two exams (CX-310-300A and CX-310-061) to be SCEA.
Of course I would like to be a SCEA5. And here is the question:
1. should I take two missing exams and then take the upgrade exams? If so, will I have to take another three exams (upgrade for every part)?

So in total I would have to take five exams to be SCEA5 for the overall cost as below
250$ + 200$ + 3*(cost of upgrade exams)

2. should I take upgrade exam to Part I and then take CX-310-301A and CX-310-062.

So in total I would have to take three exams to be SCEA5 with the overall cost
(cost of upgrade exams) + 250$ + 200$

Thank you guys. I know that there is no one book that will do the job (and I'm not looking for such). I asked about your favorite books that you would advise.

There are several books (not strictly connected with SCEA) that are often cited in this forum and are truly a must (UML Distilled, Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans, Core J2EE patterns to name a few). But what would you advice for other subjects?
Let's say I want to buy a book about JSF and JPA. On Amazon there are numbers of them. Very often they have contradictory reviews. And I believe that it is better to ask professionals for their advice than buy disappointing book with beautiful cover

I have a short question. What books would you advise for people that tend to be a Java Architects? I'm NOT asking about books that strictly help you to prepare for SCEA (listed in FAQ).

To ALL ranchers (those who passed and those who eventually will pass the SCBCD)

I propose world-wide beer meeting.

Tomorrow (14th of Feb) at 9 p.m. we shall sit in front of our computers with bottle(s) of beer (we can take our dates, too ) and celebrate our success

I'm starting right now.

Recently (half an hour ago) I've logged into I7 and found the following statement: "Sun Certified Business Component Developer for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 Certification Progress - Your current status is Certified".

What a nice surprise

Unfortunately, I cannot find any other information i.e. my exam score.

Best wishes to all beta-takers.
