This question is best addressed in 'Products and Other Certifications' Forum which has lots of posts related to this exam.

Important topics for 484 include

EJBs - Monson Haefel's book or free Mastering EJB by Ed Roman's book
Strong Servlets / JSP knowledge - Specs / Sun Web Component Developer Study Guides.
Exposure to JNDI / JDBC - Specs are small and they are good enough.
RMI - Some exposure - 1 or 2 chapter from J2EE Books
Design Patterns - Some knowledge and application.

Please note that this exam has LOTS of topics to be covered and some questions test in-depth knowledge.

It is SCBCD + SCWCD + a lot more rolled into one.

You would be better off using preparatory materials of SCBCD and SCWCD plus browse design patterns and specs.

Best wishes

Moving this to the Products and Other Certifications forum...
