Come on dude.

Unless your a sales person of simulator products you wouldn't be saying this. I hold following certifications

1. SCJP
2. SCWCD
3. SCBCD
4. SCEA (part I)

I am saying that simulators are not necessary for SCBCD only. I used simulators extentisvely for SCJP. Especially javaranch cow quiz.

Why a application developer should be reading EJB specs ? Specs are meant for different people (especially container developers). Application developer should understand only the concepts in depth.

No spec reading. Just read the Head First EJB. Thats more than enough.

I have used no simulator except Whizlabs. I took couple of test in Whizlabs failed both the times (50% and 54%). Got irritated and deteremined not to use it again. Went back to HFEJB, revised it completely.

The real exam has question just from that book. Don't waste your time in reading specs and in simulators.

Eight days includes 8 hour sleep every day. Actually I am under pressure to write the exam for better rating in my appraisal. And I didn't had any work in office. SO I just spend time in preparing for exam for the whole day.

Hi all,

I started preparing on 7-Feb. I wrote the exam today and passed it (80%). Prepared only using HFEJB. This book is more than enough.

Well, I have some prior experience on Stateless Session bean.

Actually I used Whizlabs SCBCD similator, but its very tough and pure waste of time.

My advice,

1. Understand the concept
2. Trust only HFEJB

Hi all,
Today I cleared SCWCD 1.3 with 74%. The percentage I got really surprised me. In the mock exams I am getting 95%.
Did SUN made SCWCD 1.3 more tougher after introduction of SCWCD 1.4?
Thanks,

Is anyone faced this exception earlier? Please let me know what to do ?
