I just got two books from online book store. One is the Enterprise JavaBeans by Oreilly and the other one is the UML distilled. After going through chapter 1 of the EJB book halfway, I find the the contents are quite difficult to absorb. Terminology like TPs and ORBs are totally new to me. The UML book is a bit better because I have real working experience in using Rational Rose, and so I am familiar with all those diagrams discussed in the book. For my case, I think the process of earning the SCEA would take me tremendous amount of time comparing to the time spent on SCJP and SCJD that I have already earned. Does Sun really assume that SCEA candidates need to have real experience with the scope of topics for SCEA.

Rudy,
You don't need to be a software architect to pass the SCEA, though it probably helps somewhat. Don't worry too much about all the acronyms. When you are first learning something a lot of things will be new but within a short amount of time you'll know all the acronyms. This is a good opportunity to learn and you'll actually end up knowing more than some "experts" because you really had to dig into it.
Good luck!
John
