Hi Seema,

Can you tell me what book for design patterns is to be referred for J2EE 484 test. Is Heads First Design Patterns sufficient or do I have to go through the Eric Gamma book as well.

Same for EJB, is Heads First EJB enough or do I need to study Ed Roman?

Tx Praveen.

The two books which I recommend for the first objective of the exam are
1. Designing Enterprise Applications with the J2EE Platform by Inderjeet Singh
2. Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies by Deepak Alur

I cannot comment about 'Head First Design Patterns' since I have not read it. But I have read other books in the Head First series and found them really good. So I would suggest you go through the exam objectives and see if they are covered by this book. If yes, then I'm sure it would be a good bet.

For the objective on EJB, I think Head First EJB would be a good reference. If you want to go deep into the concepts, then you can also check out the books by Ed Roman / Richard Monson-Haefel.

For a list of other preparation resources, please refer to the following article http://www.whizlabs.com/articles/j2ee-article.html

Thanks
