Thank God that I have passed the first part of SCEA (77%). Also special thanks to the ranchers and this forum who has helped with the excellent guides / misc notes for SCEA exam preparation.
Some of the materials I have used are:
1. J2EE SCEA Exam Study Guide (Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara) 2. Enterprise JavaBeans (Richard Monson-Haefel) 3. UML Distilled Second Edition (Martin Fowler wif Kendall Scott) 4. 288 Mock Exam questions (Subra's) 5. Several other notes available from Yahoo Prep site for SCEA
