Reviews - What do customers think about SCBCD Exam Study Kit: Java Business Component Developer Certification for EJB?
EJB 3.0 not included Aug 12, 2008
This is probably where the SCBCD exam is, but I was a little disappointed to discover that it only covers EJB 2.0 and not EJB 3. Probably a waste of time for most people certifying on older technology when a new version is around.
Excellent read start to finish Mar 5, 2008
This book is an excellent read start to finish. Topics are introduced gradually, the same topics are dug dipper as we proceed. The author makes sure you understand clearly as we proceed. No confusions created with too many scribblings and notes, going back and forth; like in the "Head First..." I had to drop that one at end of 2 chapters, you can refer to that for some examples if at all. With this book I never had to refer to anything at all. I definitely recommend this book over the "Head First..."
Clearly written Mar 20, 2007
What I was most impressed in this book was how clearly it's written and yet it goes deeply on those details that can always get you confused on a certification exam.
I am very satisfied.
Good book for SCBD Nov 7, 2006
This is a good book to learn the concepts of EJB but for the exam you need the HFEJB book. The details of Context objects (which method of Context object you can use in which method call of the Bean class) are more descriptive in HFEJB If you are planning to sit for the exam this book should be accompanied by HFEJB
Very Good Book Jun 13, 2006
I used this book as a primary preparation tool for the Sun Certified Business Component Developer (SCBCD) exam. Being a beginner in EJB, I found this book to be very friendly. I liked the layout of the book in general and the writing style of the author in particular. Only relevant pieces of code are presented to focus explanation of topic in question. A complete running application may be downloaded from the author's website. The multiple choice questions at the end of every chapter and ALERTs in every chapter made remembering main points easier. Deployment descriptor elements are clarified in considerable detail and they are explained well. Please note that there are errors in this book - some of them are fairly obvious such as using a capital letter as opposed to a small letter (Java versus java) while others are not so obvious but noticeable by experienced java developers. Regardless of its minor faults, I consider this book to be a valuable addition to my library. Normally I would have a cut a star for the errors but because of its content quality, I felt compelled to give 5 stars. I just passed the exam today thanks to this book. I know that I will not hesitate to buy another book from this author. Thanks Mr.Sanghera! I recommend this book highly without any reservations whatsoever.
