Scored 97% in SCBCD exam today. I used Head First EJB to prepare for the exam. I thank Kathy and Bert for producing such a lovely book (leaving out some errors).I love the approach used in the book and have started using Head First Servlets and JSP for the next exam.

I scored 85% in Head First Mock Exam and 80% in ejbcertificate mock exam. I was also using Soft SCBCD simulator and EJB Plus. Both simulators were good. EJB Plus was really easy to use and had more features (to revisit the questions). I went thru all the questions after each mock exam (even the ones which I answered correctly) to see the explanation given.

Valentin Crettaz's cheat sheet was really helpful for last minute prep.

Hi Preethi
Both HFEJB and Mastering EJB are good books. If you are preparing for Certification I would recommend HF-EJB which is still a very good book for learning EJB. Mastering EJB is also a good book to start with (they don't have mock questions which will help u sail past the exam and they dont have the Head First approach).
