Does one have to read all the recommended books for part 1. Because there seems to be so many ranging from ed roman's, mark cade's, gang of four, monson haefel, etc.

Hi Jemima,
It depends what you are reading for - if it is to improve your abilities as an architect, then you should definately read as many books as possible. But if all you want to do is pass the exam, then you could concentrate on just one or two books.
The book "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology" by Mark Cade and Simon Roberts was written by the authors of the exam, and covers most of the exam topics (there are one or two topics missing though). Personally I believe this book works best as revision notes.
Another book which is designed around this exam is "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051)" by Paul R. Allen, Joseph J. Bambara, which I understand goes into the topics of the exam more fully.
Good luck with whichever ones you decide to read.
Regards, Andrew
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
