Hi,
Which book(s) do i need to read for this exam? How many weeks of full time preparation(say 8 hrs/day, 6 days a week) do we need for taking this exam.
Also, I need a job...what do you think is better this one or weblogic cert?
Thanks in advance,
Sita

Nice to see you here Sita !
Which book(s) do i need to read for this exam? How many weeks of full time preparation(say 8 hrs/day, 6 days a week) do we need for taking this exam.

You can find the list of required books by a simple search here.
Reg., the prep time, I think it depends on your level of knowledge of J2EE platform. I'm sure only you can come up with the time frame you need to take the test. I have started my studies with EJB by Monson-Haefel. I plan to use Ed Roman's book for cross reference.
Also, I need a job...what do you think is better this one or weblogic cert

As you can see here, there are many certified people looking 4 jobs. Who doesn't need a job ?
I think we need both certifications for a complete grasp of J2EE platform. Remember, when the demand was more we never needed these certifications to get jobs. When the demand springs back, these certifications will not go waste.
Good luck to you in studies and job hunting !

Hi Srini,
When are you planning to take part I. I read somewhere that part I covers EJB 1.1 and not 2.0.
Which version of Enterprise JavaBeans are you reading? Also Ed Romans, which version?
Good Luck,
Sita

Yes, you are right. The test covers EJB1.1 and not EJB2.0. I'm using EJB by Monson-Haefel 2nd edition that covers EJB1.1.
I downloaded Ed Roman's latest book (EJB2.0) but haven't used that so far.
I haven't yet decided my target date.
Good luck to you too!
