Can I use Howard Kusher's book for Test 286?

Hi, I cannot find a book for test 286 of WSAD. There is one for Test 285, and another one for Test 287(Howard Kusher's book). While I have just taken
SCJP 1.4 and want to get a certificate of WSAD. Test 287 seems too time consuming (4 tests), and 285 seems a little low level. So I want to take Test 286.
Can I use Howard Kusher's book for that? It seems that Test 286 does not require EJB, so I plan to overlook that part and study others. Is that OK?

Hi, Like,
for my money, it's WSAD help that will aid you best in the preparation for 286. I mean 286 primarily focuses on WSAD and you hardly need a special book for it.
Anyway, you can search this forum and find sample ICE questions for this test. When I looked at them I realized that the exam is very practical and I wouldn't pass it without WSAD experience.
IMO, Kushner's book won't help you a lot as long as it has another focus.

I passed 286 a month ago. I found Kushner's book really useful in preparing for the profiling section of the test, and I couldn't find any better material elsewhere.
