I think the SCEA exam is too broad to be adequately covered in a single book. However the book Sun Certified Enterprise Architect by Mark Cade is very useful. Other books I found useful are Applied Java Patterns by Steitling, and Advanced Java Development for J2EE by Berg. A good book on EJB would help too, like Mastering EJB by Roman, or EJB by Monson Haefel, or even the new Head First EJB by Kathy Sierra.
Much of the stuff in the exam is also stuff that is picked up by experience too. Good luck for the exam!

That is me in the Brainbench high certs list - you have a very impressive number there too, Sumit. While mentioning them, there are some Brainbench tests which can help for SCEA part I. If you are a subscriber to them, you could try the following:
Brainbench OO Design Patterns cert - good for checking if you know the design patterns. (See "Applied Java Patterns", as well as the famous Gang of Four "Design Patterns" book.)
Brainbench Internet Security cert and practice test - quite relevant to the security questions.
Brainbench Internet Concepts cert - good for concepts, protocols and Internet architecture.
Brainbench UML cert - this goes into more detail than SCEA
Brainbench EJB cert and practice test - also more detailed than SCEA, but could also be useful for SCBCD.
Also, the Whizlabs practice test is overall very good, (although there are a few typos and some questions could be explained better).
The SCEA part I is challenging, so you need to be well prepared. But if you know your stuff it should be straightforward to pass.
