If you are starting as a beginner, perhaps having just SCJP and java programming experience, you have a long way to learn the material.
1. Just to pass exam 1 start with...
Allen, P., Banbara, J. "J2EE" Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE" 310-051 2003
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?userid=150NBSXSES&isbn=0072226870&itm=1

2. To fulfill the assignment, and really know what you are doing,
you should (a) have real design experience, (b) pass the IBM UML/OOAD exam, (c) pass SCBCD or know the EJB 2.0 material fairly well, (d) know networking and security issues, (e) pass SCWCD or be somewhat familiar with servlet/JSP technology.
3. To fulfill exam part 3, write fluently and know your stuff
Some people may be able to get through "by rote", but that approach is risky and you won't be able to do the work or intelligently discuss such material with your colleagues and employers. - that's my view.
I hope it helps.

For those who would prefer to buy Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051) from Amazon, the Amazon URL is Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051). Amazon is a little bit cheaper, and they give JavaRanch a small portion of the book price (which helps keep JavaRanch operating )

In my opinion, I don't believe that fluency is a requirement.
The point of the part 3 exam is to check who it was who did the work on the assignment. When you do the exam, you have to provide identification to prove who you are. The exam just checks whether the person who has been validated actually knows how the submission was created and the reasons why it was done that way - things that the author of the submission can tell you, but a non author would have trouble answering correctly.
That being the case, the ability to write fluently is not that important.
Some people may find it easier to write in point form, possibly using fragmented sentences (in both submitted documents and on the exam). This makes it easier for people for whom English is not the first language. As long as the diagrams are correct, and the other documentation and the exam are clearly understandable, fluency is irrelevant.
All of which is my opinion.
Regards, Andrew
