At least for me, Kushner's book was a completely waste of time. The level required for the exam, scenarios, is not covered. It might be a good source, for guys that already have practical experience with WAS.
Right know my approach is preparing for 340, that hopefully it will give me a better knowledge about WebSphere environment. Unfortunately, its content is huge and sometimes very difficult to understand.
I really don�t know how I will overcome my lack of experience in using WebSphere. It seems that the even the red books are not enough. I am very frustrated with those IBM certifications. I feel completely lost.

Sorry to hear about that. One good thing you should be proud of, is that you have the guts to go for the exam. That's my take on it, when i'm in a bit of doubt about my preparation for any exam. Attitude matters, pass or fail doesn't.
Its a good book and talks clearly about transactions and entity beans. That knowledge is good enough for the exam. I also went through Kushner, but didn't find it of much help. Also, don't buy whizlabs for this exam. It doesn't help much.
Hope this helps.
