The authors, Paul Allen and Joseph J. Bambara will be here starting tomorrow. Why not ask them which book is best?

I have reviewed both books and you may want to read the reviews in the "Book Reviews" forum. In general I found Allen & Bambara cover more ground than Cade's book. You will find detailed coverage, some very good examples and a lot of test-oriented tips in Bambara book. It also comes with a CD containing two full length exams with an option to download one more from the publisher's website.
The case study intended for the assignment(part II ) of the test is well covered in Cade's book. The assignment part covered in Bambara's book lacks the depth required( and expected by Sun ) for the second part.

"Sun´┐Ż Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide"

I liked Ed Roman's "Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans (2nd Edition)".
Check it out http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471417114/qid=1053392289/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_1/002-4814311-2717655
