Thanks for the reply. When I looked thru the book by Mark Cade, each chapter explains in very high level. Is it sufficient? As this book also contains only 100+ pages. Can you describe some of the mistakes in the other book? Thanks.
I was quite intereted in purchasing the book by Mark Cade and Simon Roberts (Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide), but was taken back when I found out that it contains over only 100 pages and covers at a very high level. I would like some opinions before buying book, on whether it'll be sufficient (apart from other notes from the net) for the exam. Is there a similar book written by the same authors but different publishers as I came across a forum here, mentioning the book contains over 400 pages instead? Confused.
You're right that the Study Guide is insufficient. I would guess that the Allen book is much better, but in either case you will need an additional EJB, Patterns, and perhaps a UML book (though the Cade book was enough for me for part 2). I posted my reading list in a recent post.
