Oracle Certified Master , Java EE 5 Enterprise Architect (Part 1) - Completed

Today I completed the Part 1 of Oracle Certified Master , Java EE5 Enterprise Architect and got through it. I have started getting ready for this for about 5 months ago. Since the time I started I have created my own short notes and saved them on my mobile phone. So wherever I go I have all the material along with me and I could just refer those.

Most of my study time was spent in an MRT travelling to and from my office everyday. It usually takes 1 hour to get to my office by MRT. So I believe I have used this time effectively for the preparation of the part one of the exam.

Making my own short notes gave me a quite good understanding about the material that I was using , in fact If you do not understand something it is very difficult to come up with a short note for that.

In addition to that I have created simple programs to test out concept even the ones I am already familiar with. This was really really interesting as I started thinking some aspects of the platform that I had never looked in to before

Out of all the topics I enjoyed very much Gang Of Four (GOF) and Core J2EE patterns. Even before the exam I started seeing scenarios where I could use some of those patterns as well. That was very encouraging for me most of the times

Though I call my shortnotes "Shortnotes" those are not actually short :) , when I completed one note I found that the number of pages have exceeded 95. Anyways those notes were worth a lot to me , simply because that covers most of the topics expected in the exam as well.

Anyways I do not feel like writing anything anymore , I wish all the very best for anyone who is going to give this exam a try and who happened to visit my blog.
