Hi venkatesh ,
I referred J2ee study guide by Allan & Bambara (as indian edition of Mark Cade was not available). Besides, notes posted on scea_prep group helped a lot.
I prepared for about 3 months, initially 1-1.5 hrs a day and during last 15 days 2-3 hrs a day.
Regards,

Hi Venkatesh ,
I didn't get a chance to lay my hands on Cade's book, so comaparing Allan & Bambara with it will be difficult for me. Overall Allan & Bambara is satisfactory ( it covers things in much details ).
Hi Weerawit,
There were 3-4 questions on ejb. They are not so difficult (because i had been into ejb for close to 1.5 yrs now, for a beginner they might seem difficult).

Hi Venkatesh,
Just forgot about 'mock exam' in your question. Ya i took all the free mock exams available on the net (some of their answers were wrong, you have to verify your wrong answers) . Allan & Bambara also has one mock exam in the CD.

The first 2 chapters(around 80 pages) of Paul Allen's book make you fall asleep. They give you an introduction to Software Engineering, IT Projects and the personality of a true technical architect.You can skip these 2 chapters and go directly to the 3rd chapter. You wouldn't regret it.
The other chapters are more related to the exam and keep you awake thru ur study...
